Here's a bit of American cultural influence nobody expects: Everybody loves Native American Dream Catchers

In my travels, I've noticed something that I haven't seen anyone comment on before: Different people around the world love and emulate Native American "dream catchers." 

I have a friend in Morocco, who's an artist, and 100% of his art is making "dream catchers" -- hoops that hold a kind of net, adorned with sacred items (like feathers or beads or other objects). 

Dream catchers originated with Anishinaabe peoples (a broad group of Native American people who occupied the Great Lakes region of Canada and the United States, including the Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi, Mississaugas, Nipissing and Algonquin peoples.

And now I'm seeing dream catchers all over the town of Carpentras, France (a big town in Provence), and I'm thinking about the global cultural influence of Native Americans, and feeling quite moved by it.
