Agwunsi Festival

August-September
Agwunsi, or Agwu, is the god of healing and divination among the Igbo people of Nigeria. He is also the patron of doctors, because he gives herbs and other medicines their power to cure. On Agwunsi feast day, patients who have been healed send animals as a token of gratitude to the doctors who cured them.
