1 PicADay Project: Day 336


Heritage

My husband and children are members of the American Lumbee Indian Tribe.   Even though the ‘dream catcher’ is not traditional in their culture, my husband has a fondness for all Native American People and is proud to have a Native American Heritage.  He has a dream catcher hanging on his rearview mirror that was hand crafted by his long time friend, Glenn Simmons.  Here is a photo that I took of it yesterday.  As you can tell by the dirt and dust on it, it has been hanging in his truck for years.

    Beautiful. Love the softness you’ve captured here.

  3. Hey Jan

    That’s a great shot…the angle, the character of the buckskin as it aged…..that could be really cool blown up as a gift !! The Ojibway were the ones credited for the dreamcatcher, but most tribes now make them even us Creek folk ! Thanks for posting it

    • Glenn, I thought you would like this one. 🙂 I cropped it so much, I don’t know if it’s big enough to blow up too much. I’d have to check the size of the file.

  4. So how’s this for a coincidence: I live in North Carolina and just came back from an annual mission trip to Robeson County. I’ve gone there for the past 4 years and our mission team has built wheel chair ramps and installed AC units for Lumbee Indians. My church has had a relationship with Robeson County and Lumbee Indians for over 30 years.
