Dream Catcher Key Chain. Dreamcatchers are an authentic American Indian tradition, from the Chippewa tribe. Chippewa people would tie sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame--in a somewhat similar pattern to how they tied webbing for their snowshoes--and hang this "dream-catcher" as a charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. Today you see them hanging in lots of places other than a child's cradleboard or nursery, like the living room or your rearview mirror. These fancy hand crafted key chain keep sakes are crafted of solid metal and is decorated with a real turquoise stone in the middle. These native keepsakes are great for gift bags, party favors, home decoration, and perfect for gift shops.
