The legend of the Dream
Catchers is believed to have originated many generations ago in the great
Sioux Nation. A Dreamcatcher was hung in the tepees, above someone sleeping,
to guard against bad dreams. The Dream Catchers allowed good dreams to
pass through and slide down the feathers onto the sleeper. But a bad dream
would become entangled in the webbing of the dreamcatcher, and in the morning
the sun would melt it away. To this day many people believe in the power
of the Dreamcatchers. Others see them as a beautiful decoration.
was made out of willow or green branches and sinew, decorated with stones,
or parts of animals of certain characteristics and energies. Modern Dreamcatchers
come in all sizes and shapes and in many different styles and colors. The
intention remains the same....
