Business Development

Businesses owned by the Bois Forte Band are managed by the Bois Forte Development Corporation (BFDC). The two primary goals of BFDC are to generate revenue to fund programs and services for Band members and to build businesses that create employment and career opportunities for Band members and residents of our neighboring communities.


Scroll down for descriptions and links to Bois Forte businesses. The BFDC also includes a Small Business Development Program that supports Band members who are interested in starting or expanding their own business by providing professional planning, research and marketing training and low-interest financial loans. 


For more information on the Small Business Development Program, contact Gordy Adams, Jr. at 218-550-6105;
