Every race and culture has it's own rainbow associations. To the Aboriginals it's the serpent creator god - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow_Serpent

Would they have seen Christians using the rainbow as cultural appropriation?

I think we all feel a sense of loss/discomfort when something we have as an image in our mind undergoes a cultural shift.

I remember when what originated as the CND (campaign for nuclear disarmament) symbol started to pick up all sorts of interpretations that felt disconcerting to me. (Not quite the same, but the example you're most likely to be familiar with)
