Name Origin: 'Owyhee' and 'Hawaii' are two different spellings of the same word. Owyhee County is named in memory for three native Hawaiians who were part of Donald MacKenzie's Snake Expedition, who had left the party in the winter of 1819-1820 to explore the unknown terrain of (what was later to be known as) the Owyhee River and Mountains and were never heard of again and presumed to be dead. British fur trappers began calling the region 'Owyhee'.
