Dreamcatcher - The Powerful Talisman of Native Americans

There is a beautiful Ojibwe legend about a mystical-maternal Spider-Woman, the spiritual protector of the tribe. She was taking care, especially babies and children. As the Ojibwe tribe started to grow and spread out across the land, it became difficult for the Spider Woman to protect and watch over all members of the tribe as they migrated farther away. So, she created the first dreamcatcher to protect them. The Ojibwe word for dreamcatcher means "spider," referring to the web that covers the hoop. Mothers and grandmothers, following the Spider Woman's example, recreated the maternal keepsake protecting their families.

  • are handmade and authentic
  • can be custom made for any occasion
  • can be custom made with your favorite crystals

The Purpose of an Authentic Dreamcatcher


The parts of the authentic Native American dreamcatcher have a meaning related to the natural world. Traditional dreamcatchers are handmade only from natural materials. The hoops are made of a bent Red Willow branch covered in stretched sinews. Wrapping the frame in leather is also common for authentic dreamcatchers. I was amazed by the beauty of these beautiful and mysterious talismans since I was a child and I'm glad that I can share my passion for them with my customers.

Our authentic dreamcatchers can be used to:

  • work as protective talismans
  • protect children from nightmares
  • ward off bad dreams
  • decorate your sacred space
  • surprise your loved ones with a meaningful gift
  • bring positive vibes into your home

Hand-Made, Unique Dreamcatchers at the Village Rock Shop


You've probably seen dreamcatchers hanging from a tree, on a wall or on a porch. They usually consist of a small wooden hoop covered in a net of natural fibers, with meaningful sacred feathers and beads attached, hanging down from the bottom of the hoop.

Finding authentic dreamcatchers is not easy. Many dreamcatchers are for sale today. However, many of them are oversized and made of cheap materials. At Village Rock Shop we offer beautifully crafted dreamcatchers made in a variety of different materials, sizes and styles:
