Red willow dream catchers are part of the culture of the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe people. Ojibwe elder Michael Chosa* hand makes each dream catcher in the traditional way. These are authentic dream catchers finished with a small pouch containing Ojibwe ”tobacco“.

An Ojibwe made red willow dream catcher measures about 7″ in diameter without the light gold chamois ties and ”tobacco“ pouch. Both sides of this traditional dream catcher are decorated with dyed and undyed natural materials. It’s finished with a 5-1/2″ long chamois hanging loop. Please note: This dream catcher is made of natural, untreated red willow, so small pieces of the reddish bark will fall off from time to time as the branch dries out.

*About Michael Chosa:
 Dream catchers are part of the culture of the Ojibwe people of Wisconsin. Their history among the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe is documented back over two hundred years. Michael Chosa, an elder of the Lac du Flambeau tribe with extensive knowledge of native history and medicinal plants, is one of the last living Ojibwe elders of Wisconsin to make red willow dream catchers in the traditional way.

The way Mr. Chosa makes dream catchers begins with a journey into the forest where he finds a stand of red willow. After making an offering and thanking the spirit for allowing him to take a few stems, he shapes cut red willow branches into small circular frames. Inside each frame he weaves a sinew web, then attaches a feather to attract dreams, along with natural ornaments. He finishes the dream catcher by fastening a small chamois medicine bag containing Ojibwe "tobacco" to the dream catcher. There is a special method of gathering and processing the tobacco.

These dream catchers are not toys or mobiles. Michael Chosa's dream catchers are designed to help each person help himself or herself and to trap any bad dreams. Of course there are no guarantees--each individual is responsible for doing the best they can to improve themselves. Each dream catcher is different.
