In Native American culture, a dreamcatch is a handmade object based on a willow hoop, on which is woven a loose net or web. The dreamcatcher is then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads.
A "dream-catcher", hung above the bed, and was as a charm to protect sleeping people from nightmares.
Nightmares pass through the holes and out of the window. The good dreams are trapped in the web, and then slide down the feathers to the sleeping person.
We made our own dreamcatchers.
