The story of the Dream Catcher is one of the most beautiful stories in American Indian Mythology. It is said that both good dreams and bad dreams circulate in the night air. The loop, its center woven in a web-like pattern, allows the good dreams to pass through the web to the sleeper, but makes bad dreams become entangled in the web, where they perish at the first light of dawn.
Originally woven with deer sinew on a willow hoop, and adorned with personal fetishes, as well as beads and feathers, the Dream Catcher hung in the lodge to the east awaiting the rise of the sun. The bright sunlight would then burn off all the bad dreams that had been captured in its web during the hours of darkness.
