The Dream catcher is hung above the bed and used as a charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. It was belived by the Native Americans 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.
Dreamcatchers originated in the Ojibwa Nation, during the Pan-Indian Movement of the 1960x and 1970s where they were adopted by Native Americans from a number of different Nations.
It is important to note that the Native Americans made their Dream Catchers using willow and sinew, they were not meant to last forever but intended to dry out and collapse as the child enters the age of adulthood.
