Paula wondered:
“Can I add things to my dreamcatcher?”

"One of my first dreamcatchers was made by Apache artist Cynthia White Eagle. When I brought it home, I was immediately tempted to hook a beautiful amber seahorse on it but I didn’t want to interfere with the energy or power of Cynthia's beautiful creation. So before I added anything I asked her.

"She replied: 'Oh, Seahorse or whatever you choose to add to dream catchers are actually great. A dream catcher invites those personal totems that bring one smiles, good thoughts, powerful energy . . . we are just providing a start, giving a direction to go. Healing is a very personal thing, as you well know.' ”


Dreamcatchers are believed by 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 . . .

What are Hair Pipes?

Hair pipes are long hollow beads usually, but not always, having tapered ends. The term "hair pipe" was likely coined by early white traders who saw indians wearing the long beads as hair ornaments.

Hair pipes are thought to have been originally made of conch shell by southeastern Indians (Chickasaw, Creeks, and Cherokee).Some of the oldest shell hair pipes, discovered in Tennessee, are estimated to be from 4,000 years ago.

Hair pipes of bone appeared around the late 1800s when white traders brought corn cob pipes to the Ponca Indians of the midwest - the Poncas found that the bone pipe stems made excellent hair pipes. Later, hair pipes were made of glass, brass, silver, horn and other materials.
