What does yatahey mean in a Native American language?

It sounds like it’s pronounced “Yahah-Teh.”Maybe “hello” is white-man for Y’t’éh.

It’s just a shot in the dark because there are over 2000 Native American languages.

A dinner client told me that the universe was good in him.I was informed that some people pronounce it “Yah-ha-Teh” and other people do.

In Little Big Man, Chief Dan George used a greeting common to many Native American languages.
