What are dreamcatchers?
Dreamcatchers were first used by Native Americans specifically the Ojibwe people. It wasn’t until quite recently in the 60s and 70s that they became a more universal symbol amongst Native Americans from different nations. The Ojibwe people believed that the night air contained many dreams both good and bad. The dreamcatcher is designed to trap bad dreams in its web and feed good dreams down to the sleeper by the feathers dangling at the bottom of the hoop. Dreamcatchers tend to be placed over people’s beds to protect them at night.
