Originating from the Igbo beliefs and culture, Ikenga "strength of movement" is a horned Alusi(deity). It is one of the most powerful symbols of the Igbo people and the most common cultural artifact.

Ikenga is a personal embodiment of human endeavor, achievement, success, and victory. Ikenga is grounded in the belief that the power for one to accomplish things is in their right hand.

Ikenga is mostly maintained, kept or owned by men and occasionally by women of high reputation and integrity in the society. It comprises someone's Chi (personal god), his Ndichie (ancestors), aka Ikenga (right hand), ike (power) as well as spiritual activation through prayer and sacrifice.
