It's taita and It means dad, it's mostly used in the centre of the country (Bogotá, Cundinamarca, Boyacá). Here's the RAE's definition; it comes from latin, I had always thought it came from an indigenous language.

PD: it is also used for addressing indigenous elders or shamans (google taita images)

I have no idea but my first guess was to try to replace the "h" with a "j" and then just drop "h". http://www.spanishdict.com/translate/taita

Could you be spelling it wrong? Maybe "taita"? http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=taita
