The Awkuzu Cultural Association (ACA) is a non-profit organization of Awkuzu indigenes and their derivatives in the United States that works to promote a better living for the less privileged.
The story of Origin of Awkuzu is not quite clear.
A school of thought believes Awkuzu was one of the progenies of the fifth child of Eri (Eru/Nri) his only daughter called Iguedo, who is also said to have borne the founders of Ogbunike, Nteje, Umuleri and Nando.
But this assumption has been criticized lately as 'fallacy' on the ground that Eri was also the father of the founder of Umuleri.
People on the second side of the argument believe that Iguedo is from the lineage of Ogiso (Bini) and was a famous/popular wife of Eri. She initially married Nnamenyi to whom she bore Ogbunike and Awkuzu prior to her marriage to Eri whom she begot Umueri. At the death of Eri, she married Iru and bore Nando.
