These dream catchers are all guaranteed Native American original design and craftsmanship. Many tribes make dream catchers; these specifically are made by the Navajo artisan, Mae Stone. There are several different interpretations about dream catchers depending on the tribe or region where the tribe is from. The Plains Indians have a belief that says that you are to hang them by the window or at the head of your bed. The bad dreams get caught in the web. The good dreams work their way through the hole in the center, rest on the feather like a dew drop, and evaporate to the Great Spirit in the morning sun. The prayer beads on the Dream Catcher trap all the bad dreams that are left on the web. The prayer beads then burn them up. These 4" diameter dreamcatchers come in shades of blue, pink, purple and tan.
