In Native American Culture a dreamcatcher is a form
of the word for "spider"
meaning "dream snare". It is constructed by tying sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame of willow (in a way roughly similar to their method for making
snowshoe webbing). It is then decorated with personal and
sacred items such as feathers and beads.
Even infants were provided with protective
are the "spiderwebs" hung on the hoop of a cradle board. These articles
consisted of wooden hoops about 3½ inches in diameter filled with an
imitation of a spider's web made of fine yarn, usually dyed red.
In old times this netting was made of nettle fiber. Two spider webs were
usually hung on the hoop, and it was said that they "caught any harm that might
be in the air as a spider's web catches and holds whatever comes in contact with it."
The art class was a huge success.
