Students will create a Native American dream catcher. Students will use materials similar to those used by traditional Native Americans to produce dream catchers and learn about the Native American beliefs and thoughts about the use and importance of dream catchers in Native American cultures.
Students will need a small hoop, yarn, and feathers.
Dream catchers are a Native American tradition and have been around for generations. Traditional dream catchers are intended to protect people who are sleeping from negative, bad dreams while still letting the positive, good dreams come through. The good dreams go through the hole in the center of the dream catcher and then glide down the feathers to the person sleeping below. It is said that the bad dreams get caught up in the web during the night and once the sun rises and shines on the dream catcher, they get destroyed. Traditional dream catchers are made using a hoop of willow and decorating it with bits and pieces of everyday life (feathers, arrow heads, beads, shells, etc).
