INDIAN HEADDRESS WAR BONNETS
Feathered War bonnets or headdress were worn by honored Plains Indian men. They were sometimes worn into battle, or worn for ceremonial occasions. They are seen as items of great spiritual and magical importance. The eagle is considered by Plains tribes as the greatest and most powerful of all birds, and the finest bonnets are made out of its feathers.
Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. It was difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants. The web of the dream catchers would catch all bad dreams and drop out the bottom and only allow good thoughts and dreams enter our mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams disappear.

THE SILK ROAD
The Silk Road, was a series of trade routes across Asia. It connected the West to East by linking traders, merchants, pilgrims, monks, soldiers, nomads, from China to the Mediterranean Sea during various periods of time in history.
Extending 4,000 miles (6,437 kilometers), the Silk Road derives its name from the lucrative trade in Chinese silk. Although silk was the major trade item from China, many other goods were traded, as well as various technologies religions, and philosophies. The Chinese took great interest in the safety of this pathway of products and extended the Great Wall of China to protect the traders.
