The people of Dzuleke take pride in preserving their forest as much as they can. Hence, hunting is not allowed here. A popular myth suggests that a goddess of animals and birds lives in the forest of Khonoma by the name, Chiikhie-U. Her face is shown in the deep forest and her form of expression changes depending on the actions of the locals in this area. In order to make her happy, the locals have decided to do away with the culture of hunting. And also, cutting down of woods unnecessarily. Since then, the people of Dzuleke also do their part in preserving the rich flora and fauna of this area.
