Hutu

New Zealand - A Maori chief. Husband of Pare. Pare fell in love with him but, knowing that he could never marry a maiden of such high rank, he ran away. Pare died of grief and Hutu went down to the underworld, Te Reinga, and brought back her soul, climbing one of the upside-down trees that lead to the realm of the living, and they were married. Also commonly identified as Hutu.
