    These Indian dolls were tourist dolls and not made by Indians but companies like Plastic Molded Arts in USA . They were inexpensive dolls but novelty dolls . I think most do not represent a specific tribe rather than doing random designing of beads although your male has a mowhawk hairdo Indian so possible he represents Pawnee or Mohegan Indian . Very cute . Date from 50's -60's
