Dream catchers originated in the Okinawa Nation, but were later adopted by other American Indian tribes, used to dispel bad dreams.
The shape of the dream catcher is a circle because it represents the circle of life and how forces like the sun and moon travel each day and night across the sky. The dream catcher web catches the bad dreams during the night; and, when the first rays of morning light hit the dream catcher, the bad dreams will disappear.
