The Ojibwe people have an ancient legend about the origin of a dream catcher. Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi. She took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So, the mothers and grandmothers thought of a solution, which was a dream catcher.They weaved webs for children and called them the ‘magical webs’ using willow hoops. They believed that these magical webs would protect their children from negativity and evil thoughts by filtering out all bad dreams. Soon, the magical webs became famous and started to be known as dream catchers.
