THE DREAMCATCHER LEGEND
Many many moons, sunsets and
seasons ago, a very wise spiritual leader of an Indian nation went high
into the mountains to have a vision. After several moons went by, a great
spirit who was known as teacher of wisdom came to him in the form of a
spider and spoke in a spiritual language that only the two on the mountain
The great spirit spoke of circles of life from very young to very old.
As the spirit did this, he spun a web. When he was done, he explained
how perfect the web was. He went on to say that there are good and evil
spiritual forces that all people listen to. If you listen to the evil
forces, evil things can happen but if you listen to good forces, good
things will happen to you and your people. When the sprite was done with
his talk with the Indian leader, he gave the web he had woven to him explaining
that it is a perfect circle and the web, when duplicated and adorned with
your people's precious crafts will protect them from evil spirits and
prevent bad dreams from coming to the children. If you believe in the
great spirit, the web can catch the good ideas and thoughts of you and
your people and the bad and evil ones will go through the hole in the
middle. When the great leader returned to his people, he informed them
of his vision and the dream catcher idea was born.
The people of his nation crafted
dream catchers and the Indian nation prospered for many, many seasons.
Great care was taken with the crafting and the care of the dream catcher
and it has become a sort of indian religious object.
Dreamcatchers are handmade round objects with webbing that are hung in
the windows of Native Americans for protection. Originally they had been
hung in children's rooms to prevent nightmares and the legend has it that
the dreamcatcher would catch the bad dreams so the child would not have
them. Today, Dreamcatchers as a sort of sign of Indian unity and have
been adopted by most American Indian tribes. They have become popular
among non-native americans.
So now you know the legend
of the Dreamcatcher! Dreamcatchers (sometimes quoted as two words Dream
Catchers) have evolved through Native American culture. As time has moved
forward, they have been decorated in all sorts of ways and styles since
the first great spiritual leader had his vision thousands of sunsets ago.
