Dream Catchers




Traditions and BeliefsDream catcherDream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. ClothingsFirst Nations and Inuit peoples were able to create beautiful clothing from animal hides, fur, quills, feathers and even trees! They made the clothing as comfortable as possible while making sure that it was warm in cold weather and cool in the summer.AnimalsNative American animal symbols can encompass just about all the animals, and their symbolic representation to the many tribes of the Americas.Many Native American cultures have the belief that a person is assigned an animal upon the time of birth.ReligionFirst Nation, Métis and Inuit religions in Canada vary widely and consist of complex social and cultural customs for addressing the sacred and the supernatural. The influence of Christianity — through settlers, missionaries and government policy — significantly altered life for Aboriginal peoples.

Native AmericansThe first evidence showing indigenous people to inhabit North America indicates that they migrated there from Siberia over 11,000 years ago. More than likely, they crossed the Bering Land Bridge, which was in existence during the Ice Age. After that time period, several large waves of migration took place, including many groups of people from Asia and South America.
