I grew up on the Northwest Coast and we used the word 'skookum' the same way we use the word 'Awesome!'

 

According to Wikipedia - Skookum is considered Chinook Jargon with a range of meanings, commonly associated with an English translation of "strong" or "monstrous". The word can mean "strong", "greatest", "powerful", "ultimate", or "brave". Something can be skookum, meaning "strong" or "monstrously significant". When used in reference to another person, e.g., "he's skookum", it conveys connotations of reliability or a monstrous nature, as well as strength, size or hard-working.
