The Oracle, Agbala, has a priestess called Chielo. She represents the powerful side of femininity that is not seen in any other women by the men in the book. Chielo holds much power of prophesy, which is both revered and feared by people, men and women, in the village. This veneration of a woman is rare in Igbo culture. THere are also Goddesses, like the Earth Goddess, that the Igbo recognize for things like crops.
