      This is not Native American. I think it is a 19th century American coverlet. People have begun to collect these enthusiastically over the last 25-30 years. Yours is a patriotic-themed one. if you look carefully at the corners, you may find initials of the maker, along w/ a date. I think that this one is a Jacquard, but i'm not sure. I'm no expert on them.
