Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains in the possession of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service, Great Lakes-Big Rivers Region, Fort Snelling, MN. The human remains were removed from the area of Ottawa, La Salle County, IL. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003 (d)(3). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of these Native American human remains. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. In the 1920s, human remains representing one individual were removed from an unspecified site near Ottawa, La Salle County, IL. The remains consist of the frontal portion of a skull, including the upper and lower jaws. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agents seized the human remains as part of an investigation of illegal trafficking of Native American human remains [18 VerDate jul<14>2003 19:10 Feb 18, 2005 Jkt 205001 U.S.C. 1170 (a)]. Subsequent examination by an anthropologist and testing of the human remains revealed that they are of an approximately 24-year-old Native American female that lived sometime between A.D. 1030 and 1290. On July 25th, 2002, U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Nan R. Nolan ordered that control of the human remains be transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for purposes of repatriation. Consultation with representatives of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska indicate that the area of Ottawa, IL, was occupied by Winnebago people from A.D. 500 to 1600. The present-day Indian tribes most closely associated with the Winnebago people are the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Officials of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of one individual of Native American ancestry. Officials of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Mary Jane Lavin, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, P.O. Box 45, Federal Building, Fort Snelling, MN 55111-4056, telephone (612) 713-5320, before March 24, 2005. Repatriation of the human remains to the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska may begin after that if no additional claimants come forward. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for notifying the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska that this notice has been published.

The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the University of Missouri-Columbia professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma and the OtoeMissouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma. In 1950, human remains representing a minimum of one individual (accession number 23SA0002.121), and in 1973, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals (accession numbers 23SA0002.120 and 23SA0002.249) were removed from site VerDate jul<14>2003 19:10 Feb 18, 2005 Jkt 205001 23SA2 (Utz site), Saline County, MO, during excavations conducted by University of Missouri-Columbia professional staff, supervised field school students, and volunteers of the Missouri Archaeological Society. No known individuals were identified. The three associated funerary objects are two pieces of debitage and one soil sample. Based on oral tradition, types of associated funerary objects from other burials at the same site, and historical documents, this individual has been determined to be Native American. Based on radiocarbon dating, presence of trade objects, and historical documents, the Utz site has been identified as a village occupation estimated to date to approximately A.D. 1460–1712. Oral tradition, archeological evidence, and historical documents indicate that the Utz site was a village of the Missouria Tribe, and therefore, the burials are reasonably believed to be culturally affiliated with the OtoeMissouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma. Officials of the University of Missouri-Columbia have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of three individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the University of Missouri-Columbia also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the three objects described above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony. Lastly, officials of the University of Missouri-Columbia have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects and the Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma. Additional human remains and associated funerary objects from the Utz site (23SA0002) were described in three Notices of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register on July 18, 2000 (FR doc. 00–18137, page 44545), April 3, 2001 (FR doc. 01–8175, pages 17732–17733), and March 7, 2003 (FR doc. 03–5515, page 11142).
