Which tribe was Hyram from?

The tribe of Naphtali

And king Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre. He was a widow's son of the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tyre, a worker in brass: and he was filled with wisdom, and understanding, and cunning to work all works in brass. And he came to king Solomon, and wrought all his work. 1 Kings 7:13-14

The tribe of Dan

Huram ... the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in crimson. 2 Chronicles 2:13-14

The Hiram/Huram in the two accounts refer to the same guy, who was the craftsman who helped King Solomon construct the temple.
