This is not appropriating. This is showing some fucking respect to cultures from whom so much has already been taken, without recognition or compensation. There are a million and one words in the English language. It’s not hard to choose words to convey the ideas we want to express and be respectful. If you’re chafing at the minimal effort this requires, please ask yourself if this is really the hill you want to die on as an asshole.
