An old Lakota spiritual leader had a vision on a high mountaintop. In his vision, Iktomi, the great trickster and teacher of wisdom, appeared in the form of a spider. He spoke to the elder about the cycles of life. “In each time of life there are many forces. If you listen to the good forces, they will steer you in the right direction. But, if you listen to the bad forces, they’ll steer you in the wrong direction.”
When Iktomi finished speaking, he gave the elder a web and said, “The web is a perfect circle with a hole in the center. Use the web to help your people reach their goals, making good use of their ideas, dreams and visions. The web will catch your good ideas and the bad ones will slip through the hole.” Many people to this day hang a dream catcher above their bed to sift their dreams and visions.
By joining the Dream Catcher Society, your annual pledge of $1000 for three consecutive years is the force for girls to reach their goals to be strong, smart, and bold. Your support makes it possible for girls to enter into an environment where they learn to make positive choices and steer away from negative peer pressure. Your monthly donation of $83.33 per month can change a girl’s life in Santa Fe.
