The Talking Stick is a method used by many Native American tribes. The stick let all members who wished to talk hold it while others had to wait for their turn. All members of the circle were valued, one could not talk about any person in a bad or negative way. The stick was passed from one individual to another until all who wanted to speak had done so in and orderly and respectful way. After session the stick was then passed back to an elder for safe keeping.

The Dream Catcher Legend Native Americans believe that a night is full of dreams, good and bad both. When the dream catcher is placed above where you sleep it catches the dreams as they drift by. The good dreams, know their way through the opening in the center of the webbing while the bad dreams don’t. Bad dreams are caught in the webbing and disappears when the first daylight comes up. This protects you from bad dreams. There are many variations of legends and styles. Some are done with willow and some with hoops. Each one is unique.
