The King of Summers End by JasonEngle

Hello, I've looked a bit through the FAQ and some answered asks, and I'm sorry if I missed it, but do you have any tips/resources/tutorials on making a dream catcher from scratch? I'm not too educated about it but I think it belongs to Native American culture, so I was wondering, would it be bad to use it being a non-American at all? And if it is, do you know if there are any European equivalents, or anywhere I could search for that? Thank you very very much!

this is a touchy subject, as it falls into what’s known as cultural appropriation. the short answer is that, in my opinion, it would not be a good idea to appropriate a Native American tradition/craft, especially without being educated on the tradition and its culture. dreamcatchers are traditionally made with a willow hoop and sinew by some Native American cultures (I believe the tradition began with the Ojibwe people and it was shared/adopted by other NA people).

out of respect to the origin culture, I advise finding an alternative. here are some ideas:

here’s an interesting design, though I wouldn’t call it a dreamcatcher (it’s in no way traditionally made, doesn’t really resemble the traditional design). something like this can be used a snare and can be customized for your purposes:


so, yeah! as you can see, there are many open and customizable alternatives you can look into without taking something from NA culture.
