Dream Catcher

From Plank Road Publishing

by Teresa Jennings

Some cultures have crafted objects to help control the effects of dreams. Such was the case with the Ojibwa tribe from the upper Midwest. Since the dream was believed to play an important part in one's life, the Ojibwa fashioned hoops called "dream catchers" resembling spiders webs, as the spider is believed to be the keeper of dreams. The web allows the good dreams to pass through to the dreamer while bad dreams are trapped within the web. Charms are woven into the web, to reinforce the dreams. The Pawnee have similar practices.

The song "Dream Catcher" is an original accompanied round composed using a mode similar to those used by Native American tribes of the Great Plains. For the recording, you will hear a wooden flute, piano, frame drum, and natural jingles accompanying the voices. The accompaniment tracks we provide will work well for your performance needs, but this tune will work well with instruments available to most schools. (from Music K-8, Vol. 6, No. 1)
