As the legend goes, the Dream Catcher used by Woodland Indians was hung in the lodge (near the bed), Its use was to catch dreams good or bad. The bad dreams would get caught in the webbing and would be held there till the first morning light, then burn off. Now the good dreams caught, through the center hole would filter down into the feathers and be held there, only to return another night.
Minnesota Lions Diabetes Foundation, Inc. has adopted the Dream Catcher as a sign of hope that a cure for diabetes will be found.
