I have a dream catcher that happened to be in a box I got at an auction. Its original owner had passed away so I dont know who made it and I'm uncomfortable owning it since I am white. Is it okay for me to have it? And if not, what do I do with it?
Thanks for reaching out. I answered a question similar to yours recently! Check these out and let me know if you have more questions:
- Are dream catchers cultural appropriation?
- Is it offensive to Native American culture for a white person to make items that are traditionally Native American? Such as beading work or dream catchers etc. that follow traditional type practices and but are not for financial gain?
Best of luck,
