If Ancestry is using the Human Genome Diversity Panel (HGDP) for their reference populations, there are only four Native American groups, Pima and Maya for North America and Colombia and Karitiana/Surui for South America.

But all Native Americans descend from a relatively small number of ancestors and retain many similarities with each other, so those tribes can serve as a proxy for Native American ancestry in general, even for tribes from the eastern US/Canada. I'd lump your East Asian component in the same category.
