The Legend of The Dream Catcher

Long ago when th eworld was young and old Lakota spiritual leader was on a high mountain and had a vision. In this vision, Iktomi, the great trickster and teacher of wisdom, appeared in the form of a spider. Iktomi the spider picked up the elder's willow hoop which had feathers, horsehair, beads and offerings on it, and began to spin a web. He spoke to the elder about the cycles of life: how we begin our lives as infants, move on through childhood and onto adulthood. Finally, we go to the old age where we must taken care of as infants, completing the cycle. "But, "Iktomi said as he continued to spin his web, " in each time of life there are many forces: some good and some bad. If you listen to the good forces, they will stear you in the right direction. But, if you listen to the bad forces, they'll steer you in the wrong direction,, and may hurt you. So these forces can help or can interfere with the harmony of Nature".

While the spider spoke, he continued to weave his web. When Iktomi finished speaking, he gave the elder the web and said, " the web is a perfect circle with a hole in the center. Use the web to help your people reach their goals, make use their ideas, dreams and visions. If you believe in the Great Spirit, the web will catch your ideas and the bad ones will go through the hole."

The elder passed on his vision to the people, and now many Indian people hang a dream catcher above their bed to sift their dream and visions. The good is captured in the web of life and carried with the people, but the evil in their dream drops through the hole in the center of the web and are no longer a part of their lives.
