n. A settlement, the in-habitants of a district or neighbourhood, (Bib.) province. Engari ake koe i te noo ki te au matakeinanga i vao i te noo ki Avarua. You would be better off living in one of the outlying vages rather than in Avarua itself; Kua pou mai nga mata-keinanga i te matakitaki i te tarekareka. People from all the other districts came to see the sports; te aronga tutara katoa i te au matakeinanga ra, all the rulers of the provinces (Dan. 3.2). [Ta. *mata-kaina„a.]
