DREAMCATCHERS

A dreamcatcher is based on a willow hoop on which is woven a net or web of sinew. It is then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads. Dreamcatchers originated in the Ojibwa Nation and were adopted by Native Americans of a number of different Nations. Some consider the dreamcatcher a symbol of unity among the various Indian Nations, and a general symbol of identification with Native American or First Nations cultures. Others believe that dreamcatchers protect sleepers from nightmares, allowing only good dreams to pass through and catching bad dreams in the net where they perish in the light of day.

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
