Let’s Make A Dream Catcher…..
Marlita (Rainbow Buffalo) will lead us in this workshop.
You will use your vision, energy and creativity to make
your own dream catcher and decorate it the way you desire, while learning the history and application of this sacred medicine.
All materials will be provided.
However, if you have special beads, feathers, animal hide or hair with which you wish to decorate your dream catcher, bring them.
If you choose to gather willow or grapevine from Nature, gather it in a Sacred Way.
Address and give thanks to each direction - The Creator, Mother Earth, the East, the South, the West and the North. Give a tobacco and Cornmeal offering to the plant,
and now you can cut your branch.
There will be an optional Pipe Ceremony before the workshop. (starting at 12 noon) It is traditional to gift the Pipe Carrier with tobacco, sweetgrass, cornmeal, beads or some token of thanks and respect wrapped in red cloth. (money is unacceptable)
