(Shawnee, Oklahoma)- The Sac and Fox Nation Business Committee recently announced the purchase of Shawnee Trophy. The Sac and Fox Nation’s newly formed company, Shawnee Trophy, a Sac and Fox Nation Limited Liability Company, purchased the business from longtime owners Randy and Ruthi Loftis.

“The citizens of the Sac and Fox Nation have spoken loud and clear concerning interest in diversifying our Nation’s economy. While this may not look like a large step from the outside, it is very much an important and necessary moment for the future of the Sac and Fox people. We will look back on this day and history will reveal it to be the first in many steps to economic and financial sovereignty for our Nation. We are just getting started,” said Principal Chief Wood. “We thank the Loftis family for their assistance during this transition and commend them for growing Shawnee Trophy into the impressive business it is today.”
