Transcript of Dream Catchers

Dream Catchers

It is believed that the basis of the Native American dream catcher is from the Ojibway Chippewa tribe. The Ojibway would tie strands of string around a frame of bent wood that was in a small round or tear drop shape. The patterns of the dream catcher would be similar to how these Native Americans tied the webbing for their snowshoes.

Traditionally, Native American dream catchers were only a few inches in diameter and it would be finished with a feather hanging from the webbing. Wrapping the frame in leather would be pretty common too as another finishing touch.

The Dream Catcher was made to help protect the children that were having strange or frightening dreams.
A History The dream Catchers are still around today in native homes as well as many other homes in Canada and the US. Today they are used as more of a symbolic nature.
Dream Catchers can be all sizes ranging from small to extremely large or any colour the person wants. They can be simple, or complex, even 3D.
