Originated in the 1850's by the woodland Indians. Its purpose is to catch good and bad dreams. The good dreams are preserved in the middle and spread to the feathers for keeping. Bad dreams are caught in the webbing and can be removed by blowing smoke on the dreamcatcher. Hang in your window & enjoy.
