Default american made shifters

So I'm going for an all American build for my Yo, and I'm having trouble with deciding on shifters. I really like Shimano trigger shifters and sti units (I've used XTR-950's with great success for a long time) and I absoutely can't stand twist/grip shifters. And the issue is that I don't think that any US companies made a Shimano style shifter, but maybe I'm wrong...? The only American shifters I know of are the obvious SRAM/Sachs Gripshift, Proshift twist shifters, and the White Industries crazy double cable twist shifting system. Does anybody know if I'm wrong about this, or should I just stick with the XTR's?

Could always use a Paul thumbies mount with an older Shimano bar con.

You could use microShift. I know it's not period but it is a thumbie
