Legend of the Dream Catcher

on November 29, 2021
from St. Joseph’s Indian School, Chamberlain, South Dakota (Lakota Sioux Tribe):
“Native Americans of the Great Plains believe the air is filled with both good and bad dreams. Historically, dream catchers were hung in the tipi or lodge and on a baby’s cradle board.
“According to legend, the good dreams pass through the center hole to the sleeping person. The bad dreams are trapped in the web, where they perish in the light of dawn.”

  8. The historical roll of the dream catcher, has a purity of thought, worthy of a People in touch with Spiritually… not like those who drift blindly… thinking existence is enough…
