of Akuanaldo is commonly known as the ceremony of Knife or Cuchillo.
This ceremony is only received by babalawos. This ceremony is like an
upgrade to Ifa. Many people say that in this ceremony is where the Awo
is presented to Olofin. This ceremony also has an Ita. This ceremony
is known as ceremony of cuchillo (knife) because one of its benefits
is that the Awo (Babalawo) that receives it can use the knife in ritualistic
sacrifices and can kill 4 legged animals in ceremonies. The ceremony
lasts 3 days and is performed by a number of more or less 8 babalawos.
