In Polynesian mythology
is a son of the god Eitumatupua
, who climbed to earth from the sky on a tree
and father Ahoeitu by Ilaheva
. Eitumatupua left Earth and his lover and son. Ahoeitu grew into a man and wanted to find his father; his mother told him to climb the tree and he would see his father catching pigeons. Ahoeitu did so, but his half-brothers were jealous of their father's happiness at seeing him, so they killed him and ate him. Eitumatupua forced them to regurgitate the pieces, and he then made Ahoeitu whole again. Ahoeitu became the King of Tonga.
