īā

īā, (-‘ia). Shoo, drive, urge on (animals, fish).

Ka rauka iā koe i te īā i tērā au puakatoro ki roto i te ‘āua?
Can you drive those cows into the enclosure?;

Āā‘ia te moa ki va‘o, kā kai i te tōmāti.
Shoo the chickens out, they‘ll eat the tomatoes;

‘Auraka e īā i te ‘oro‘enua.
Don’t urge the horse on.
