      No, it's not Native American. The Navajo are the only Native American tribe that weaves rugs, and they use a unique loom and weaving technique (an upright loom with a continuous warp), which makes it physically impossible to weave a rug with fringe on both ends like this.

      Decorative rugs with an "Indian style" motif are made in Mexico, India, and Pakistan, or it's possible this is from a Middle Eastern country (where the designs we associate with Navajo rugs actually originated). Maybe someone else will recognize where it is from, all I can tell you is it definitely isn't Native American.
