Maman brigitte


Maman Brigitte (English: Mother Brigitte) also written Grann Brigitte, Manman, Manman Brigit, Manman Brijit is a death loa and the wife of Baron Samedi in Vodou. She drinks rum infused with hot peppers and is symbolized by a black rooster. Like Baron and the Ghede, she uses obscenities.

Brigitte is also one of the only white Voodoo gods, due to having origins in Scotland, and not Africa or Haiti like other Loa. She is described having red-gold hair and emerald green eyes.

She protects gravestones in cemeteries if they are properly marked with a cross.

A New World loa, Maman Brigitte is syncretized with various saints, including Saint Brigid and Mary Magdalene.
