(-a, -ia, -na). Select (people), elect, appoint or install. Kua tupu te pekapeka i to ratou ikianga i te aronga no te noni poro. There was a row when they were selecting the rugby players; Kua iki a Tangiia i tana tamaiti ei taunga no tona marae. Tangiia chose his son to be priest on his marae; Ko te mea mua ta tatou ka rave, koia oki, ko te iki i tetai akaaere no te uipaanga. The first thing we should do is to elect a chairman for the meeting; Toko rai oki tei karangaia, e iti ra tei ikiia. For many are called, but few are chosen (Matt. 22.14); Ko te marae iki-anga ariki teia o to matou kopu tangata. This is where our tribe install their king. (See ikinga, ikiiki1.)
