Dreamcatchers - Traditionally
In some Native American cultures, a dreamcatcher the inanimate form of the word for "spider" or "dream snare" is a handmade object based on a willow hoop, on which is woven a loose net or web. The dream catcher is then decorated with sacred items such as feathers and beads.
Traditionally, the Ojibwa construct dreamcatchers by tying sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame of willow (in a way roughly similar to their method for making snowshoe webbing). The resulting "dream-catcher", hung above the bed, is used as a charm to protect sleeping people, usually children, from nightmares.
The Ojibwa believe that a dreamcatcher changes a person's dreams. Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through… Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day. Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper.
Another explanation of Lakota origin, "Nightmares pass through the holes and out of the window. The good dreams are trapped in the web, and then slide down the feathers to the sleeping person."
