Ojibwe dreamcatcher legend
Long ago, when all the Ojibwe clans used to live in one central location, Asibikaashi (Spider Woman) took care of all of her people by weaving each child a magical web. When the Ojibwe Nation dispersed to the four corners of North America, Asibikaashi had a difficult time making her journey to all of her children, so the mothers, sisters, and Nokomis (grandmothers) took up the practive of weaving the webs for the new babies using willow hoops and sinew or cordage made from plants. It is in shape of a circle to represent how giizis (the sun) travels each day across the sky. The dreamcatcher will filter out all the bad bawedjigewin (dreams) and allow only good thoughts to enter into our minds when we are just abinooji (children). You will see a small hole in the center of each dream catchers where those good bawadjige may come through. With the first rays of sunlight, the bad dreams would perish. When we see Asibikaashi, we should not fear her but instead respect and protect her. This is the legend of the dreamcatcher.
