Odinani (Igbo: ọ̀dị̀nànị̀) comprises the traditional religious practices and cultural beliefs of the Igbo people of southern Nigeria. Odinani has monotheistic and panentheistic attributes, having a single God as the source of all things. Although a pantheon of spirits exists, these are lesser spirits prevalent in Odinani expressly serving as elements of Chineke (or Chukwu), the supreme being or high god. Chineke is a compound word encompassing the concept of chí the divine masculine force and (nà) ékè the creative and divisive feminine force. The concept of Chúkwú ('supreme chi') was largely propagated by the Aro-Igbo of Arochukwu in eastern Igboland who wielded much spiritual force over the eastern Niger Delta in the 18th century due to their operating of the Ibini Ukpabi oracle.

Alusi (también Arusi o Arushi) son deidades menores, cada uno con sus propios fines específicos. Muchos otros espíritus y los demonios existen en la creencia Odinani y el folclore.

  • Il Odinani è l'insieme dei miti dell'etnia africana Igbo, e la base della loro religione tradizionale. La divinità suprema del pantheon Igbo è il dio-creatore Chukwu ("grande spirito"). A Chukwu si devono soprattutto le cose buone del mondo; particolarmente forte è l'associazione della figura di Chukwu con la pioggia, gli alberi, le piante e il Sole. Uno dei miti più importanti legati a Chukwu riguarda l'origine della morte. Chukwu aveva inviato un cane a dire all'umanità di coprire i corpi con la cenere e deporli al suolo, e che in questo modo sarebbero risorti. Il cane era stanco e procedeva lentamente, e Chukwu inviò anche una pecora. Questa però dimenticò il messaggio strada facendo, e giunta al cospetto degli uomini comunicò erroneamente che i morti andavano seppelliti. Quando il cane
