Dream Catchers (Legend, Lore & Artifacts)
Anthropologist Cath Oberholtzer explores the origins and history of Dream Catchers. She envisions the Ojibwa as the source of the earliest 'dream catchers' in small charms used to protect infants. She progresses to the popularity and spread of Dream Catchers that many people consider them symbols of Native American spirituality.
Dream Catchers: Legend, Lore & Artifacts features a plethora of photographs of dream catchers of every type. Many of these are artistic and stylized and not representative of any Native American culture or group.
