'''Zunheboto''' is the home to the [[Sumi Naga]]s, a warrior tribe of Nagaland. Head hunting was practiced extensively until the advent of the [[Christian]] missionaries who converted the warriors to [[Christian]]ity. Today the people are peaceful and hardworking, practicing agriculture as their main occupation.
Today it is home to the [[Nagaland University]] whose campus is situated in the village of [[Lumami]] in the sub division of ''Akuluto''. This has become the cultural center for the people of Nagaland, as all the [[Naga people|Naga]]s irrespective of tribes come to study here.
