Patupaiarehe are pale-skinned and fair or red-headed supernatural beings that live in the realm between man and the gods. Some call them the fairy folk. Patupaiarehe live in the deep forests and mist-covered mountain tops of Aotearoa. The patupaiarehe used the mist to cloak and veil themselves as direct sunlight is harmful to their skins. The inanga of this toki holds the swirling mists in which the patupaiarehe hide, and hence it was named Patupaiarehe.
