Native American legends have it that mothers would build complex webs for their children from willow hoops, and sinew and hang it by the door when they sleep. When they wake up, all the bad dreams would be caught by the dreamcatcher, and it would let in only happy dreams into a child’s mind.

And that’s how a dreamcatcher got its English name.
