Q: I wonder if you can help me could you please tell me
what the word "Aho"
means in English.
A: In many Plains Indian languages, "aho" (and other variants like "ho" and "hau") are
greetings, like "hello." In some tribes they are also used to indicate agreement
(like "yes" or "indeed.")
Hope that helps!
