    My wife, who passed to the spirit world a year and half ago, taught dream catcher making at our house to several in a Native group we belong to. I, unfortunately, was busy supporting the guests and not paying attention to the instruction as I should have. Will try again with the instructions. Well never match her matter of fact talk; teach; make but maybe I can make one that isn’t too awful.

    Wawanon Thank You

      Thank you for sharing I come from Australia and have the two most wonderful friends, One is Apache and the other Cherokee. They have shared and taught me so much, I have cried and laughed, mostly learned. I have been beading for 25 years and now with their inspiration and direction make jewelry. I can now go ahead and wire wrap a silver dream catcher ear ring. thank you

    I have been making Dreamcathers for 2 years now. One thing it brings me great peace when I am designing them. I make them out of Red Willow, cut in fall and circled with yarn to keep the shape. Many of my Tribal friends have requested my work, which makes me proud of my heritage. Miigwech (Thank you)

    I was taught by an Abernaki healer that when you are making a dream catcher for someone you know, a prayer for that person should be made with each loop. Also, the dream catcher should be shaken outside every morning to rid the catcher and home of the bad/negative dreams and forces.
