Dream Catchers


Event Phone: 204-987-8850

While most people know dream catchers as a purely decorative item, these have a rich history among indigenous cultures. The legend of the spider woman, also known as the Absibikaashi, is said to have protected children while they slept. When the Ojibwe people began spreading out across Canada it was hard for the spider woman to visit all the children, so the females of the families began creating spider web inspired nets to act as protective charms to catch evil spirits in the form of nightmares; thus keeping their children safe. All the supplies you need to make a lovely decorative, or spirit catching piece of art will be provided for you.
