    Hey Dude!

    Looks like it means "Hello and welcome" in Navajo.

    Here's a link from a VERY authoritative source -- "some guy": Google Groups thread

    Dave of the "Ya Ta Hey!" class

    I think it depends on the way you pronounce it, whether it means "hello" or "Kiss my A$$." Do you have any Indian friends that you can ask?

    It's Dine (Navajo) greeting for hello...
