In Chapter 7, Huck has had enough of Pap's abuse. In order to escape, he shoots a pig and fakes his own death. This is a symbolic act as well. Huck is literally "dying" to his old self, only to be reborn through his adventures with Jim. Although it takes awhile, Huck eventually comes to accept Jim as an equal and helps him try to escape slavery.
