wheiao Play

1. (noun) daylight, world of light - a word usually coupled with ao mārama.

Ko te wheiao te wāhi kei waenganui i te aopōuri me te ao mārama; engari, ko ia te wāhi e tata atu ki te pūaotanga o te māramatanga. Ko te wheiao tuatahi i puta mai i te wā i noho piritahi a Ranginui rāua ko Papatūānuku me ā rāua tamariki (Rewi 2005:16). / The wheiao is the place between the world of darkness and the world of light, but it is closer to the unfolding of the world of light. The first wheiao occurred at the time that Ranginui and Papatūānuku and their children lived together.
