In interesting thread on the origins of this 1E monster from the Fiend Folio.

Apparently, it is from tribal legends from Ecuador. ... =1&t=35763

Great stuff. I wonder how many other Mezo-American monsters are hidden within D&D.

Perhaps it might be an idea to try to collect as many of them as possible (or to create a Mezo-American variant for core monsters).

Well, kinda necroposting, but the wakufe (the creature huecuva are inspired from) are from Chilean mapuche traditions.
