kōtaka

kōtaka, v.i. Flit past (of people), dodge by.

Kua kite atu mātou iā koe i te kōtaka‘anga nā roto i te one meika.
We saw you dodging through the banana plantation;

Tērā te tangata keikeiā e kōtaka atū ra nā muri i te patu.
There are the thieves sneak-ing away behind the wall. [kō-4, taka1.]
