Dream catchers have been used by many different nations of Native Americans. Most atribute them to the Objibwa. A dreamcatcher was made to hang over the bed of the young to protect them in their dreams. Dreams were supposed to enter through the feather and get lost in the web. Personal fetishes (beads, animal figurines, etc.) aid in the retention of the "bad" dreams. The bad dreams would remain trapped in the web until the morning light appeared, when the bad dreams would then disappear.
This dreamcatcher is made from a deer antler I found in Colorado at the site of the "I do" fire. The "I do" fire burned 10,000 acres, and is named after the wedding between two firefighters it interupeted. I found this antler along the fence line. The webbing is actual deer sinew (ligaments) and contains one glass seed bead, and one glass pony bead. The feather is that of an owl.
