"TYGH" NAME ORIGIN

The firm is named after the Tygh Valley (pronounced “tie”), a scenic valley located in Central Oregon near the Deschutes and White Rivers.  The valley is in turn named after the Tygh tribe, a Native American tribe that was part of the broader Warm Springs band of tribes.  Legend has it that this valley was used by the indigenous people to prepare for battle.
