I was saddened to realize that this test is culturally appropriative, as I am not Native American or from any culture that has spirit animals. I was very proud of it, as it has been going for 7 years or something like that, and had over 200,000 takers.
I have left the description up, so that people who click on it can read my reasons for taking it down. It is my hope that, since so many took the test, many will see that message. The most important part:
The discrepancy between our fascination with native cultures and our disrespect for their descendants today is truly disconcerting. Their struggles are just as real as the cultural traditions that fascinate us.
This is the truth. There are far more people out there who like feather earrings, headdresses, moccasins, spirit animals, and other aspects of various Native American cultures and tribes than people who care or know anything about Native history, genocide, and continued mistreatment. This must change.
