yeah i think that what it comes down to is whether or not use of that term contributes to the trivialization and marginalization of oppressed cultures, and it does when it’s used in a less-than-serious context.
as a white person whose religion does not feature such things i don’t feel it’s within my right to give an answer to that.
i don’t think it should be used as a joke, anyways. if you’re saying a character is that to you, you’re not using it in a serious cultural context???
plus no matter what your culture is you can’t deny that the primary connection is to native american culture and that term is used to trivialize its significance. as a white person in a western society chances are you are not oppressed for your culture the way native american people are.
hey folks remember that it’s racist to say something is yr “spirit animal”!!! a great non-appropriative alternative is “patronus”!!
