Q: Hello, Im trying to find out the meaning of the word Owachee, could you help me?

A: Well, it depends on where you encountered this word (there are hundreds of Native American languages, and words sounding similar to this must exist in many of them). But it's probably Owaci (pronounced oh-wah-chee, sometimes spelled Owachi or Owači), which means "dance" in Lakota Sioux and is very well known to white people now because of the movie Dances With Wolves.

Have a good day!
