Spiders and Dreams


Dza is having nightmares. She cannot sleep and is confused and scared. Finding it difficult to decide on exactly what she’s afraid of, Eagle and the people decide she must be afraid of spiders because she said there was a spider in her nightmare. To help keep her from being frightened, Wina tries to watch over her as she sleeps. Unfortunately, he too falls asleep and enters the dream world. Here he meets the Spider and She gives him a gift of knowledge to protect the children from evil spirits. When Wina wakes up, he teaches the other parents of the village how to fashion the wood, leather and feathers into special gifts for their children, called a Dream Catcher.
