Literally meaning "Dead Forest" in the Wookiee tongue, Kkowir Forest was an area on Kashyyyk, and home to the local Kerritamba tribe of Wookiees, the Outcasts, and the mysterious Sayormi cult. The Myyydril Caverns lay in the northern parts of the forest.
The Kkowir Forest was home to the Kerritamba Tribe's village, a village set up by the Kerritamba. The Kerritamba Village and tribe was led by Chief Kerritamba. Many dangers lie in the Kkowir Forest, including the Sayormi, who are believed to be ghosts that live in the lower levels of the forest and also webweavers, a huge arachnid, non-sentient species. The Dead Forest Area of the Forest is one of the most dangerous areas in the Forest. Many Sayormi have settled there.
