Sometimes referred to as "sacred hoops", Native Americans traditionally used dreamcatchers as talismans to protect the sleeping from bad dreams and nightmares. They believe the 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.
