"Turaga Matau's village, Le-Koro, lies hidden in Lewa's jungle region on the west of Mata Nui. The village is disguised to look like hanging jungle weeds to protect it from the evil beasts of Makuta.
The tall trees of Le-Koro are jumping with life. Birds, insects and Matoran buzz about the treetops, chattering and shrieking. But Le-Koro's villagers live in fear of the dark swamp that lies beneath their treetops."
Turaga Matau (all formerly)
Le-Koro's location was chosen by Toa Matau to house the sleeping Le-Matoran population of Metru Nui. During the first journey of the Toa Metru to the island of Mata Nui, Matau conducted some exploring in the deep, swampy jungles of the island. Lost and uncomfortable down in the jungle swamps, Matau decided to build the village in the treetops. Le-Koro was constructed by the Le-Matoran, guided by Turaga Matau and utilizing materials from the Airships used in the Great Rescue.[BW][MNOG, Ch. 6]
Near the end of the Dark Time, Le-Koro was in the midst of onslaughts from a nearby nest of Nui-Rama wearing Makuta Teridax's Infected Kanohi. Many Le-Matoran had already been carried off by the swarm, and Toa Lewa's location at the time was unknown, leaving only the Gukko Force to defend the village.
Takua traveled to Le-Koro with the Onu-Matoran Taipu during this time. As they progressed to the village, a Nui-Rama carried Taipu off to the hive. The remaining Le-Matoran were quietly hiding in their treetop village huts when Takua arrived, but Takua's flute music told the Le-Matoran he was another Matoran. The Le-Matoran came down to great him, but before long, the Nui-Rama attacked the village again. The Le-Matoran pilot Kongu asked Takua to fly with him and be his disk-throwing second. Takua accepted, and the duo flew alongside other Gukko pilots, fighting all the way into the Rama hive. Inside the hive the team quickly found Turaga Matau, and most of the population of Le-Koro, forced to work for the Nui-Rama. Suddenly, Toa Lewa appeared and revealed himself to be wearing an infected Kanohi, and under control of Makuta Teridax. The Matoran of Le-Koro were then rescued by Toa Onua after he freed Lewa from the control of Teridax.
When the Bohrok swarms were first awakened, the Nuhvok attacked and overran Le-Koro. Matau, and most of the Le-Matoran were captured and given Krana in place of their Kanohi. As the slaves of the Bohrok queens, the Bahrag, they tricked Lewa and replaced his Golden Kanohi with a Krana. The treetop village itself was heavily damaged, and almost destroyed. Lewa and the population of Le-Koro were eventually freed of their Krana thanks to the efforts of Takua, Toa Onua, Nuparu, and his new creation, the Boxor, as well as the last free Le-Matoran, Tamaru and Kongu. Following the Bahrag's defeat by the Toa, the village of Le-Koro was repaired with the help of the reprogrammed Bohrok.
Later, Gahlok-Kal[BC3, p. 35] and Nuhvok-Kal[BKOA, Ep. 2] attacked the village and stole Lewa's Nuva Symbol which was kept there in the Le-Suva. Eventually the Toa Nuva stopped the Bohrok-Kal and returned the Nuva Symbol to Le-Koro.
During the Kolhii Tournament, Le-Koro hosted the Le-Koro/Ga-Koro Kolhii game, which they lost. When the Rahkshi attacked later, the Matoran of Le-Koro soon got word that Ta-Koro had been destroyed, and told Toa Lewa of it through drum playing, and the Toa Nuva then told Jaller and Takua.
The village was deserted upon the rediscovery of Metru Nui, later destroyed by the reawakened Bohrok, and wiped from existence by Mata Nui's awakening.
The Le-Wahi treetops that Le-Koro was located on grew in Lake Kanae. The Le-Matoran lived in dangling huts which resembled beehives, and post-Bohrok War, three large trees were cut down level to the village to house a village center, the Le-Koro Kolhii Field, and a training area for disk-throwing.
The village in the treetops was disguised to look like hanging jungle vegetation.
Heavily damaged by the Bohrok during their first recorded awakening, the village was deserted since the Matoran returned to Metru Nui. The location has now been destroyed by the reawakened Bohrok swarms.
The Le-Matoran were the primary Matoran inhabitants of Le-Koro. Here, the Le-Matoran performed day-to-day activities such as Disk throwing or playing music. The village was ruled by Turaga Matau and protected by Lewa, Toa Nuva of Air. Le-Koro was also home to the Gukko Force, led by Kongu. Their enhanced agility made the treetop village ideal for the Le-Matoran.
