Mang

East Indian - A goddess of night. Wife of Lejo. On a visit to earth, in the time before night existed, she caught her long hair in a vine and could not fly back to heaven. She was found and released by Lejo, who married her. Unused to the continuous light, she had brought a bag full of darkness and she inadvertently allowed it to escape so that thereafter night alternated with day. After the birth of their daughter, Mang flew back to heaven. Occasionally referred to as Mang.
