  1. "Spirit animal" is culturally appropriative. PLease be mindful of this and re-title your article, remove your article/or update it with appropriate wording and issue an apology.

  2. It is my understanding that the idea of a "spirit animal" is sacred to many First Nations people, and that non-Indigenous people have been asked to refrain from using this term (especially when describing trivial things). Surely we can find a better way to describe a museum preference.
