Words from Apache artist Cynthia Whitehawk:
DREAMCATCHERS are known to the Indigenous peoples of the Americas to filter and destroy bad dreams, thoughts or negative influences, allowing the good, positive and enlightening influences and strong healing to take place. Totems, fetishes, ritual and ceremonial items significant to the owner are added for additional healing energies. Read more about dreamcatchers . . .
