I received a surprise in the mail from St. Joseph's Indian School in South Dakota: a dreamcatcher. On the back of the package is the legend of the dreamcatcher.I haven't taken a picture of it yet, but I will and I'll post it. Until then, enjoy the images I found for dreamcatchers and the Legend of the Dreamcatcher.
Native Americans of the Great Plains believe the air is filled with both good and bad dreams. Historically, dreamcatchers were hung in the tipi or lodge and on a baby's cradle board.
According to legend, the good dreams pass through the center hold to the sleeping person. the bad dreams are trapped in the web, where they perish in the light of dawn.
Dreams r yours
