Suddenly... nobody's squawking about...

..."cultural appropriation"...

Jacinda Ardern, the pregnant prime minister of New Zealand, is considering a request by Maori leaders to bury her placenta at the spot where Britain signed the treaty that led to the founding of the nation state.

“The fact that the suggestion was made and that there were elders alongside me who really acknowledged that — it felt like a significant gesture.”
First of all... yuck... and, second... how do you stop the ferrets from digging it up and feeding it to their pups?

How about, "Let's throw another Jesuit on the barbie?"
"To prevent him from speaking more, they cut off his tongue, and both his upper and lower lips. After that, they set themselves to strip the flesh from his legs, thighs, and arms, to the very bone; and then put it to roast before his eyes, in order to eat it."

Well better to store the umbilical cord in case your child needs stem cells later on. Much more scientific if need excuse to decline politely.

Meanwhile in a virtue signaling land far, far away a tribe that was lifted out of the stone age is drumming on the base where Cornwallis's statue stood.
They are welcome to quit with the cultural approbation and go back from whence they came IMO.
