About Oubache State Park:
Ouabache is difficult to spell, but easy to pronounce. Simply say ""Wabash,"" just like the river that forms the southwest boundary for the park. This is the French spelling of a Miami Indian word, ""waapaahšiki,"" so don't be surprised to hear many folks call it o-ba-chee. The full name of the Wabash River in the Miami language is ""waapaahšiki siipiiwi."" See how the river's name was pronounced by the Miami tribe.
