The Story Behind the Dream Catcher
Dreamcatcher belly button rings are hot pieces of body jewelry. However, there is a story behind the dream catcher belly button rings rise in popularity. The dream catcher has been a part of the ancient story and ancient traditions for many Native American people. Since the elder of the Ojibwe Chippewa tribe went to the top of a high mountain and received his vision of the dream catcher, Native Americans have been creating handmade dream catchers. These dream catchers were made out of the natural materials found around them which is fitting because the dream catcher is ultimately a symbol of the harmony found within maintaining balance in nature. Red willow constructed the hoop of the dream catcher while plant fibers produced the original web configurations in the center. By the 1900s, red yarn was being in used in place of nettle fiber or sinew. The story behind the dream catcher varies depending on who you talk to which is common for oral stories passed down, meaning being formulated and re-formulated by the storytellers. In one version, it starts with an elder Ojibwe (Chippewa) who had a vision of a leader with wisdom in natural things. This leader took the form of a spider. The spider took the willow hoop the elder had with him and wove a web into it, and then, explaining the meaning behind the web as one of balance and harmony in nature. If the dream catcher is hung, good forces and good dreams are caught and travel down the feathers to the dreamer. Bad forces disappear at the sun's first light. The bead in the center symbolized one creator for the one world.
