What is District Dream Broker all about?
The District Dream Broker, Antje Rongve, connects inner-city youth and their families in the Battlefords area with a sport, recreational or cultural activity. She can support participation in various sport, culture or recreation activities by helping with registration costs, transportation, equipment or just by being a cheerleader on the sidelines when a family member is unable to attend.
“CRAFTING WITH THE DREAM BROKER KIDS”
Right now, Dream Broker students are creating their own Dream Catchers! They are easy to make & you only need a few items. The end result is beautiful! Here is a list of items you’ll need.
- 8” brass ring
- Faux suede cord
- Sinew or faux sinew (wax cord)
- Clothes pin (or any “clamp” that can hold the suede to the brass ring)
- Decorative string or ribbon (to attach feathers to dream catcher)
- Beading wire to attach feathers to string, if you have a glue gun you can just glue to string.
Did you know? Dream Catchers were originally used by First Nation peoples to protect their dreams from any negativity. They believed that the night air is filled with all dreams both good and bad.
The catchers caught the bad dreams and the holes let the good dream through. Mostly used for children during the night to keep away bad dreams or nightmares.
The students used this Youtube video as a guide to create their Dream catchers.
