What is a dream catcher? A construction made of willow sticks, tendons, feathers, and beads? An object to catch dreams? A sacred object of the Native Americans? When was it created and where? What is it for? I went on a journey to get answers to these questions. First and foremost, the dream catcher is a reminder. A reminder of our own past. A reminder that you should be more conscious of your surroundings and of yourself. Perhaps the dream catcher is a wish for another world. Or even a dream we should wake up from. Dreamed badly?
