Omenala, Omenana, Odinana or menani is the traditional cultural
beliefs and practises of the Igbo people of West Africa. These
terms, as used here in the Igbo language, are synonymous with the
traditional Igbo "religious system" which was not considered
separate from the social norms of ancient or traditional Igbo
societies. Theocentric in nature, spirituality played a huge role
in their everyday lives. Although it has largely been supplanted by
Christianity, the indigenous belief system remains in strong effect
among the rural and village populations of the Igbo, where it has
at times influenced the colonial religions. Odinani is a
panentheistic faith, having a strong central deity at its head. All
things spring from this deity. Although a semi-pantheon exists in
the belief system, as it does in many indigenous African and
Eastern religions, the lesser deities prevalent in Odinani
expressly serve as elements of Chukwu the central deity.
