Legend of the Dream Catcher

Indian Tipi

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.
