The net is woven over the hoop. The net is linked with the snowshoes made by the same tribe. Lakota nations and Ojibwa, together with the Native Americans, proved the real existence of the dream catchers. These people used the spiders as a sign of comfort, in contrary to what they are: creepy crawlers.

These tribes have one viral story about the ‘Spider-Woman’.

In the end, some remarkable things like beads, feathers, and shells are attached. And they are hanging at the bottom of the hoop.

The ordinary dreamcatchers, which are called traditional ones, have eight points where the fiber touches the hoop. Those represent the spider’s legs. As we already said, they were the protectors, and they represented wisdom, knowledge, and energy.

All the tribes had one thing in common; they all agree that the creation is representing the good and eliminating the bad energy. It serves as a neutralizer of good and bad energy. They can be different, in different colors, and with different designs, and they are handmade.
