You can specify an existing contiguous or sparse map for the hash index.

For a sparse map, you can specify a colocation name. A hash index can have different map or colocation name than the base tables.

Name of an existing contiguous or sparse map.
You cannot specify TD_DataDictonaryMap or TD_GlobalMap.
COLOCATE USING colocation_name
Name for colocating the hash index on the same AMPs with other tables, join indexes, or hash indexes. For example, you can colocate two tables, then join the tables on the primary index or primary AMP index columns.
You can only specify this option for a sparse map. For a contiguous map, the colocation_name is not needed for colocation and is set to NULL.
If you do not specify a colocation name, the name defaults to database_index, where database is the name of the database or user followed by an underscore (_) and index is the name of the hash index. If database exceeds 63 characters, database is truncated to 63 characters. If index exceeds 64 characters, index is truncated to 64 characters.
