The Legend of the Dream Catcher

cradojib

Although the legend of the dream catcher is not traditionally a Blackfoot legend, many First Nation people enjoy making dream catchers as a way to celebrate their culture.

White Earth Ojibwe Infant in a Cradle Board. Babies had a feather in the center of their dream catcher. The feather means breath or air. It is essential for life. A baby watching the air playing with the feather was entertained while being given a lesson on the importance of good air. . The woman’s Owl Feather is kept for wisdom! The man’s Eagle feather is kept for courage! As Adults to use these feather, each gender is aware of the gender properties he/she is invoking. [ These feathers are not allowed to be sold!]

One of the many legends of the Dream Catcher

Legend has it that grandmother Spider sang the universe into existence, but was saddened by the bad dreams of her human children. She went to the Willow Tree and asked him for some of his branches. She then went to the Eagle and asked him for his powerful feathers. She then bent the branches into a circle to connect all points and people of the world. Then she spun her web of wisdom around the branches to catch her children’s bad dreams. Grandfather Sun’s morning rays burned away the bad dreams that were tangled in the web. Any that were left turned into dew and trickled down the eagle feather and were given back to Mother Earth.

May the bad wishes /prayers of others on our Lives, be bounced away, burned away or taken cared of by Mother Earth!
