Does this look like it is a Native American handmade necklace?

Hi there. I was wondering whether you could help me determine whether this is a Native American handmade necklace. Thank you in advance for sharing your expertise and knowledge, and Happy New Year. I posted this in the wrong place the first time (apologies).

No. It looks like material that gets passed off as being Zuni but is an imported item, or at least its components are, no matter who strung it. Without a definitely known origin, you can’t assign it to being Native.

The heishi is typical Philippines penshell. The buffalos appear on other (low-end) necklaces on the market. I can’t quite see the findings but it looks like the 1970s screw-together clasp style, not what you see on a quality piece.
