Local goddess of Nkoranza

She lives in a particular akata tree in Nkoranza, which is where the devoted can ask her for her aid. She can cure sickness and bring blessings if you ask her nicely.

There are several rituals involving her. Apparently she likes a bit of a sacrifice, but nothing too heavy. One her favorite things is eggs, which should be crushed on the branch of her tree while making the appropriate invocation. We are not sure if she prefers soft or hard-boiled.
