"Dream" may refer to a delusion, or to a hope. Perhaps Raven is referring to the delusion of separation -- the human delusion of being separate from other animals. Or perhaps she's referring to the hope of a more aware and attentive way of living. Which do you say she means? In either case, there's no answering for it.
One evening Gray Wolf Came by after a long absence and asked, "Are the old masters of the past really our own ancestors?"
Raven said, "Most certainly."
Gray Wolf said, "But it seems that they were folks who wore clothes."
Raven said, "I can't answer for the dream."
