Dreamcatchers were traditionally woven by the grandfathers and grandmothers for newborn children and
hung above the cradleboard to give the infants peaceful, beautiful dreams. The night air is filled with
dreams. Good dreams are clear and know the way to the dreamer, descending through the feathers. The slightest
movement of the feathers indicated the passage of yet another beautiful dream. Bad dreams, however, are
confused and confusing. They cannot find their way through the web and are trapped there until the sun
rises and evaporates them like the morning dew.
