Mambo Ayizan is the patroness of initiation
into Vodou, the Kanzo ceremony. She is the wife of Loko and one very important Mambo. She is usually seen during Kanzo ceremonies and almost never comes at any other time.
She is seen as a market woman wearing a white dress. This dress usually has large pockets where she keeps small candies, change and other items to hand out to her children. She is linked to public places and high people traffic areas.
During the Kouri Ayizan, the person performing it will inevitably become possessed by the Lwa. Ayizan will then proceed to use the ayizan to cleanse, bless, and empower people. She is then taken into the djevo, or initiatory room, to perform certain secret ceremonies to bless it for the candidates going in for initiation.
