Chapter 20 Okonkwo is very enthusiastic: his plans include building new huts, marrying two more wives, getting titles for his sons, and persuading her daughters to marry young and brave warriors. Unoka had never had any prestigious title and he left a lot of debts after himself.
They will put off the burial of the man until his wife is buried. Okonkwo does not let anyone know that he was extremely worried about his daughter, and had made several trips to the cave before Ekwefi, who was following Chielo, had even reached the cave.
Chapter 5 Before the harvest, the village holds the Feast of the New Yam to give thanks to the earth goddess Ani. Chapter 6 At the wrestling contest, an essential part of the culture, Ekwefi meets with Chielo, the priestess of the Oracle. Periodically, the egwugwu spirits appear from the underworld, including a one-handed spirit who dances and brings a message for the dead Ezeudu.
Obierika and Okonkwo spend the rest of the night drinking and talking. At the gathering, Ogbuefi Ezeugo, a noted orator, announces that someone from the village of Mbaino murdered the wife of an Umuofia tribesman while she was in their market.
The annual wrestling contest comes the day after the feast. Okonkwo asks Ekwefi to make him a dish, and does it in his favorite way and has Ezinma bring the food to him. Everyone in the village gathers for the funeral ceremony of a warrior who had achieved three titles in his lifetime, a rare accomplishment.
The death of Ikemefuna is one of the most important incidents that will lead to the tragedy of Okonkwo. As Ezinma gives him her dish, she asks about the wrestling tournament and offers to carry Okonkwo's chair.
