Yeah, I didn’t know people connected the term “spirit animals” with Native Americans until I did some basic research. Always thought it was a play on New Age spirituality. Which I thought was what the anon was so defensive about. Which I found kinda funny.
I always associated the term “totems” with Native Americans (though I don’t think it’s used across all tribes…) and every other group that were/are into animism. Which ranges from many Native American tribes to modern day Pagans. Or even my Hispanic family members that celebrate Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) stuff. So I feel like spirit animal is an acceptable term while totem is not.
Or we could just use Patronus. Which I’m surprised the Potter generation on Tumblr doesn’t use actually. It’s pretty much a spirit animal, right? I would just have to remember to use it since I only read the first couple of books and then dropped the series. So Potter terms are not currently stored in my wet drive.
