There is no single native American language, there are many native American languages - see related question.

In Tsalagi (Cherokee) the words would translate as: Eagle - "Wo-ha-li" ="Woh-ah-lee" / Sun - "Nv-do-i-ga-e-hi" = "N(ah)-doh-(ee-(h)a-ahe)" the "doh" said gluttorial and the last section said fast and all together.

Can anyone tell me where this sun pendant is from and what Native American community it signifies?

All of (most of) the Native American societies 'worshiped the sun' in some way.Each had their own views, and representations of the Sun. Each also represented the Sun in a different way. I'm sorry to say that I see no way that this site could answer that question as we can't see it, the 'question' of what it looks like exactly would be large and voluminous.My suggestion would be to take the pendent to, or directly contact, an expert on such things so maybe you could send them a photo and identify its source.Good Luck.

Which plains tribe did celebrate the sun dance?

The question is too general. There were plains tribal groups who historically celebrated the traditional form of the Sun Dance faith; tribal groups who still conduct Sun Dances today; plus, genizaro affairs who engage in what can only be described as a "Pan-Native American"/"Native Pan-American" semblance of the original plains Sun Dance. Historically, most Plains Indian tribes did participate in the Sun Dance. In fact, it is easier to ask which plains tribes did not participate in the Sun Dance--such a list would be shorter.
