Maman Brigitte, the mother of cemeteries, the lwa (goddess) of money and death. Maman Brigitte protects cemeteries, especially graves that are marked with a cross. Since Vodou combines elements of Christianity with native African beliefs, the cross symbolizes both the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the crossroads, where the human world intersects with the divine. Maman Brigitte is a tough-talking, sarcastically funny goddess who uses a lot of obscenities. She is both the queen of the cemetery and a just judge. Some also claim Brigitte is the protectress of sex workers. Some reports say Maman Brigitte is originally Celtic in origin, descended from Brigid, the Celtic goddess of poetry, smithcraft, and healing. Maman Brigitte is one of the few Loa who is white and is depicted as being fair-haired and green-eyed with light European skin.
Catholic counterpart: Saint Brigid, Mary Magdalene
Colors: purple, black
Offerings: black roosters, hot pepper, elm, weeping willow
