MAMAN BRIGITTE is the Vodoun Goddess of death. She is the one of the Ghede loas, the deities associated with death and fertility. Her husband is Baron Samedi, the leader of the Ghede. 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 usually depicted as white-skinned with red hair, and it is said that she is a form of the Celtic Goddess Brighid. Her name is also seen as GRANN BRIGITTE and MAMAN BRIJIT.
