Meet the Owners of Southwest Trading Post

From as early as he can remember, even as a young boy, Butch always had an affinity for the Native American Indians. When all the other boys wanted to be a cowboy in “Cowboys and Indians,” Butch was picking up his bow and arrow and wanting to play the part of an Indian.  He joined the Boy Scouts as he entered his teenage years, and soon became intrigued with Indian lure and the way of the Native Americans.

Butch believes that, if you connect to your core, to your roots, and have a strong desire to help others, you can get through anything.

Beth will often share her core belief: “You have to be true to yourself and continuously stay centered before you can help anyone else.”

Growing up in Georgia, Beth saw firsthand the destruction caused by discrimination. This traumatic experience has stuck with her to this day. As both Butch and Beth grew up, the struggles of the American Indians and the challenges they have faced throughout history deeply resonated for both of them.

Butch and Beth have been together for over 56 years, and their story is based on love and a bond of friendship that can never be broken. They are empathetic and caring, and truly care about people. They often experience the chance to help people heal by simply offering a kind ear and many years of wisdom. Butch and Beth have a strong bond as husband and wife, caring deeply about the journey of life and all of the experiences along the way.
