The Ojibwa Dream Catcher Legend
An Ojibwa grandmother and her grandson were watching a spider spin its web next to their sleeping place.
The child reached out to squash the spider but the elderly lady stopped him, telling him he should not hurt spiders.
As a reward for her kindness the spider told her
“I will spin a web that hangs between you and the moon that will trap all bad dreams and protect you from them”
The dream catcher’s web will trap bad dreams or dark spirits, and allow the good dreams
to slip through the small hole in the centre to the sleeper below.
A small dream catcher would be hung on a child’s cradle board
and often there would be one hung in an Ojibwa lodge above the family sleeping area.
Each part of a dream catcher has a symbolic meaning:
* The Hoop, traditionally in the shape of teardrop, is now more usually circular and represents the Sacred Circle of Life
* The Web represents the spider’s web to catch the dreams.
* The Feathers are the path the good dreams follow to reach the sleeper
* The Beads and Gem Stones in the web - a single bead represents the spider; several beads represent trapped dreams.
