Pacific Islands - A god of the Tonga Islanders. Husband of Ilaheva. Father of Ahoeitu. He is said to have taken the mortal Ilaheva as his wife and, having fathered the boy Ahoeitu, returned to the sky. When he grew to manhood, Ahoeitu was reunited with his father but the heavenly sons of Eitumatupua were jealous and tore him to pieces. The father ordered them to regurgitate the pieces of their brother's body that they had eaten and he reassembled them and restored Ahoeitu to life, making him king of Tonga. Known as Eitumatupua.
