Originating from the Ojibwe Tribe, the legend for how dreamcatchers began goes as follows:
A grandmother watched patiently each day as a spider spun his web above her sleeping place until one day her grandson noticed the spider and tried to kill it. "Don't hurt him," She told the boy in a soft tone. When the grandosn left the spider thanked the woman for her protection and offered her a gift. "I will spin you a web that hangs vetween you and the moon so whn you dream it will snare the bad thoughts and keep them form you." At this, the grandmother smiled and continued to watch the spider spin his web.
