Pitt-Johnstown Program Board November Make and Take! Dream Catchers

In honor of Native American History Month, Program Board is offering a make your own dreamcatcher?  What is a dreamcatcher and its significance? We found the below information on legomenon.com. 

Sometimes referred to as "Sacred Hoops," Ojibwe dreamcatchers were traditionally used as talismans to protect sleeping people, usually children, from bad dreams and nightmares. This Native American tribe believes that the night air is filled with dreams, both good and bad. When hung above the bed in a place where the morning sunlight can hit it, the dream catcher attracts and catches all sorts of dreams and thoughts into its webs. Good dreams pass through and gently slide down the feathers to comfort the sleeper below. Bad dreams, however, are caught up in its protective net and destroyed, burned up in the light of day.

We hope that these dreamcatchers offer you some peace and tranquility as you proceed toward finals.
