|The Dream Catcher |
As the legend goes, the Dream Catcher was used by the Woodland Indians and was hung in the lodge. Its use was to catch all dreams, good or bad. The bad dreams would get caught up in the webbing and be held there 'till first morning light, then burned off. Now, the good dreams were caught, and knowing their way to the hole in the center, would filter down into the feathers and be held there, only to return another night, to be dreamed.
