Dream Catcher

Susan Mullins Kwaronhia:wi is a Mohawk from the Kahnawake reserve in Canada. She now lives in Berea, Kentucky. She learned the traditional songs, stories, dances, and crafts of her people from the Elders and works to keep her heritage alive and share it with others. The dreamcatcher originated with the Ojibwe, but has been adopted by other nations. In this video segment, Mullins shows her grandchildren how to create a dreamcatcher. This video was produced with a primary-age audience in mind.
