pāketaketa

pāketaketa, v.i. Stubbornly persistent, obdurate, inflexible.

Mē ka pāketaketa atu rāi koe, ka makia koe.
If you persist in doing it you will get ill;

nō te pāketaketa ia rātou i te rave i te kino,
because they were hardened to crime;

‘E au tangata ngākau pāketaketa tika ai tēia.
These people are really very obdurate.
[pā-7, keta RR.]
