St. Joseph’s Indian School in Chamberlain is catching more flack than dreams for its decision to distribute dream catchers – an item of traditional Lakota Plains Indian culture – as a fundraising tool. The problem, according to some potential donors, is that the dream catchers the school has been distributing are made in China.   

Each year, St. Joseph’s distributes a packet to potential donors in an effort to raise money for the school. In 2013, the packet included a dream catcher. A hoop with webbing – “a dream catcher,” in traditional Lakota thinking – helps trap bad dreams, while allowing good dreams to reach a sleeping person.
