I LOVE dreamcatchers, always have, mostly due to Poppy. I remember watching him make them when I was little. I guess it was just one of those things that always stuck with me. He's also the reason that I decided to make and sell them in my shop. I gave him a little shout out on my dreamcatcher page. For those of you that knew him, you know he'd love the shit out of that! I was given all of his dreamcatcher paraphernalia, boxes full, and TONS of feathers.
If you are not familiar with the background of dreamcatchers, then it's your lucky day because that is what this blog post is all about!
Dreamcatchers originated from the Ojibwe Chippewa Native American Tribe. It is believed that the purpose of a dreamcatcher is to protect a sleeping person from negative dreams. The positive dreams slip through the hole in the center of the webbing and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. Negative dreams get caught in the web and expire when the first rays of the sun strike them.
Many other tribes and native people have adopted dreamcatchers into their culture. While the designs may slightly differ, the meaning behind them is still the same.
Side note: The spelling....dreamcatcher, dream catcher, dream-catcher....i don't care which is correct, I prefer it as one word - DREAMCATCHER :)
