look up any word, like hipster:
 
1.
1) An expression used exclusively by Ojibways used to express awestruck wonder or amazement at anothers or ones own actions, especially to boost the ego.

2) A brief form of expression used to hold another or oneself in high regard, especially after accomplishing an amazing feat.

3) A verbal pat-on-the-back used by Ojibways, proverbially equal to that of a "way to go!"
