DREAMCATCHER VOYAGE
Dreamcatcher Legend and Boat Specifications
Dreamcatcher legend
Dreams were sought by the Indians, since they valued visions to be very
sacred. The Old Ones tell that dreams do hold great power and drift
about at night before coming to the sleeping ones. To keep the dreamer
safe, the Old Ones created a special web, the Dreamcatcher, to hang
above their sleeping places.

The ancient story told by the Native American Indians is that the
Dreamcatcher's hoop, with the intricate webbing at it's center, ensures a
sleep undisturbed by bad dreams. The good dreams would take the
path of the web with great ease to its center and would float gently
down the trail of beads, and like the feather, drift down into the minds
of the sleepers below. The bad dreams would struggle with the web and
always become entangled. The night would pass on, leaving them to
perish in the rays of the new day sun.
