Cree8 will be hosting a Dreamcatcher workshop – Sunday, March 19, 2023
History of the Dreamcatcher
Dreamcatchers are a traditional aboriginal craft found predominantly in Lakota, Ojibwa, Navaho and Cree culture. The weaving catches the bad dreams and nightmares entangling them within the web. The good dreams to flow through the web and slide down to the feathers to the dreamer. In the Morning, the bad dreams and nightmares entangled in the web evaporate in the sunlight, just as drops of dew on a spider’s web. The feathers take the hopes and dreams on the wings of the bird’s spirits to creator.
We will begin with a traditional welcome and smudge. Chantal will be your guide, instructing how to create your Dreamcatcher step by step. She will also share the Story of the Dreamcatcher and the deeper meaning behind each aspect and the teachings they hold. We will bless our Dreamcatchers upon completion with the smudge.
