Ancient legends about the history and origin of the dream catcher exist among several Native American tribes, but chiefly through the Ojibwe and Lakota nations. According to the Ojibwa story, a mystical and maternal "Spider Woman" served as the spiritual protector for the tribe, especially for young children, kids and babies. As the Ojibwe people continued to grow and spread out across the land, The Spider Woman found it difficult to continue to protect and watch over all the members of the tribe as they migrated farther and farther away. This is why she created the first dreamcatcher. Following her example, mothers and grandmothers would recreate the maternal keepsake as a means of mystically protecting their children and families from afar.
This beautiful dream catcher brings together the protective properties of the Native American legend with the seven healing chakras, or energy centers, of the body.
