While dawning sacred objects may be melodramatic for some, enough to gain a following, it is useless to the world or spiritual integrity and is actually sly self indulgence. While I like the message the pic is offensive to Native Americans. Women have never worn headdresses as it is a sacred item earned by a person of leadership & spirituality. This woman obviously knows nothing of our culture or she wouldn't be wearing it nor do the people who took the picture. I do not offend your culture & sacred items. Do not offend mine. 
This came from Facebook from a group called Aura & Soul Psychology.

I was looking at some of my current &  past creations from Stone Carvings to inlay work & thought I would share them. If you have any questions about anything, let me know & also visit or website at: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/BeadSpiritDesigns

I am a pipestone carver & inlay turquoise in much of my work. I also do some quill work as you see in the silver cuffs (colored porcupine quills). Also some dream catchers, also pictured. I make our family ceremonial pipes & with the leftover pieces work into the jewelry. My wife does much of the design work and finishes them into the necklaces you see--peyote stitch & edge beadwork, we she has been doing for almost 20 years now. If you purchase one of our pieces, a percentage also goes into our Little Spirits Fund for abused & neglected children on Pine Ridge Reservation, S.D. Every month we ship diapers & food & in the winter months we are able to help our families with heat. Thank you everyone who has purchased one of our pieces & for your continued support of the Little Spirits Fund.
