      They look like typical Bennington marbles, made in Germany in the 1800s. There were also a few U.S. companies that made similar clay marbles.

      They're made from clay, fired and salt-glazed in a kiln, produced by the millions, and can turn up anywhere in the country where there were kids playing with them in the late 1800s, early 1900s.

      The key identifying features of Benningtons are the brown color and the lighter spots, sometimes referred to as "eyes," where they touched each other during firing.

      No relation at all to Native American.

      You might try a web search for Benningon marbles to confirm. Most sites will tell you they are the most-common type of old marbles, so individual values are minimal, although they are interesting and occupy a certain niche in history.
