LEGEND OF THE DREAM CATCHER
An Ojibwa Legend

 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.
