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 Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA. The human remains were removed from Pecos Pueblo, San Miguel County, NM. 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 the 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 Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico; Mescalero Apache Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico; Navajo Nation, Arizona, New Mexico & Utah; Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico; Pueblo of Cochiti, New Mexico; Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico; Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico; Pueblo of Laguna, New Mexico; Pueblo of Nambe, New Mexico; Pueblo of Picuris, New Mexico; Pueblo of Pojoaque, New Mexico; Pueblo of San VerDate jul<14>2003 16:22 May 30, 2005 Jkt 205001 Felipe, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Ildefonso, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Juan, New Mexico; Pueblo of Sandia, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Clara, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santo Domingo, New Mexico; Pueblo of Taos, New Mexico; Pueblo of Tesuque, New Mexico; Pueblo of Zia, New Mexico; San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona; Yavapai-Apache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona; Ysleta del Sur Pueblo of Texas; and Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico. Between 1914 and 1916, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals were removed from Pecos Pueblo in San Miguel County, NM, by A.V. Kidder during the Andover Pecos Expedition. The human remains were donated to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology by the Andover Archaeological Department in 1919. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of eight individuals were removed from Pecos Pueblo in San Miguel County, NM, by an unknown person. The human remains were received by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at an unknown date and were accessioned into the museum collections in 2000. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The ceramic types recovered from Pecos Pueblo indicate that the site was occupied into the Historic period (circa A.D. 1300–1700). Historic records document occupation at the site until 1838 when the last inhabitants left the Pueblo and went to the Pueblo of Jemez. In 1936, an Act of Congress recognized the Pueblo of Jemez as a ‘‘consolidation’’ and ‘‘merger’’ of the Pueblo of Pecos and the Pueblo of Jemez; this Act further recognizes that all property, rights, titles, interests, and claims of both Pueblos were consolidated under the Pueblo of Jemez. Further evidence supporting a shared group identity between the Pecos and Jemez pueblos emerges in numerous aspects of present-day Jemez life. The 1992–1993 Pecos Ethnographic Project (unrelated to NAGPRA) states, ‘‘[T]he cultural evidence of Pecos living traditions are 1) the official tribal government position of a Second Lieutenant/ Pecos Governor; 2) the possession of the Pecos Pueblo cane of office; 3) the statue and annual feast day PO 00000 Frm 00119 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31529 of Porcingula (Nuestra Senora de los Angeles) on August 2; 4) the Eagle Watchers’ Society; 5) the migration of Pecos people in the early nineteenth century; and 6) the knowledge of the Pecos language by a few select elders.’’ (Levine 1994:2–3) Officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of 10 individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology 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 Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Patricia Capone, Repatriation Coordinator, Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, 11 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138, telephone (617) 496–3702, before July 1, 2005. Repatriation of the human remains to the Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology is responsible for notifying the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico; Mescalero Apache Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico; Navajo Nation, Arizona, New Mexico & Utah; Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico; Pueblo of Cochiti, New Mexico; Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico; Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico; Pueblo of Laguna, New Mexico; Pueblo of Nambe, New Mexico; Pueblo of Picuris, New Mexico; Pueblo of Pojoaque, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Felipe, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Ildefonso, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Juan, New Mexico; Pueblo of Sandia, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Clara, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santo Domingo, New Mexico; Pueblo of Taos, New Mexico; Pueblo of Tesuque, New Mexico; Pueblo of Zia, New Mexico; San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona; Yavapai-Apache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona; Ysleta del Sur Pueblo of Texas; and Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico that this notice has been published.

Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA National Park Service, Interior. Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate a cultural item in the possession of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA that meets the definition of ‘‘objects of cultural patrimony’’ under 25 U.S.C. 3001. 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 the cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. The one cultural item is a Tlingit Chilkat tunic with a Kaagwaantaan Clan of Klukwan bear crest. In 1977, the cultural item was donated to the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley by the daughter of the original purchaser, who had acquired the tunic from the widow of a Tlingit Kaagwaantaan Clan leader during the 1930s. The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley consulted with Sealaska Corporation, acting on behalf of the Kaagwaantaan Clan of Klukwan. Museum records contain a photograph circa 1900 showing the Kaagwaantaan Clan leader wearing the Chilkat tunic with bear crest. Written records obtained at the time of the donation indicate that the Chilkat tunic was worn at a potlatch given by Chief Shakes in Wrangel, AK in 1879. Museum records also indicate that the widow knew that the tunic should not be sold. Sealaska Corporation provided further evidence that the Chilkat tunic with bear crest was the property of the Kaagwaantaan Clan, could not have been conveyed by VerDate jul<14>2003 16:22 May 30, 2005 Jkt 205001 any individual tribal member, and should be returned as an object of cultural patrimony. The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley agrees with the evidence and therefore will repatriate the Chilkat tunic with bear crest to the Sealaska Corporation, acting on behalf of the Kaagwaantaan Clan of Klukwan. Officials of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(D), the one cultural item described above has ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, rather than property owned by an individual. Officials of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley 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 object of cultural patrimony and the Kaagwaantaan Clan of Klukwan, represented by the Sealaska Corporation. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the object of cultural patrimony should contact C. Richard Hitchcock, NAGPRA Coordinator, Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720, telephone (510) 642–6096, before July 1, 2005. Repatriation of the object of cultural patrimony to the Sealaska Corporation, acting on behalf of the Kaagwaantaan Clan of Klukwan, may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley is responsible for notifying Chilkat Indian Village (Klukwan); Klukwan, Inc.; and Sealaska Corporation that this notice has been published.

Notice of Inventory Completion: Peabody Museum of Archaeology and 
Ethnology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 
Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, 
Cambridge, MA. The human remains were removed from Pecos Pueblo, San 
Miguel County, NM.
    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 the 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 Peabody 
Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology professional staff in consultation 
with representatives of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Arizona; Hopi 
Tribe of Arizona; Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico; Mescalero Apache 
Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico; Navajo Nation, Arizona, 
New Mexico & Utah; Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico; Pueblo of Cochiti, New 
Mexico; Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico; Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico; 
Pueblo of Laguna, New Mexico; Pueblo of Nambe, New Mexico; Pueblo of 
Picuris, New Mexico; Pueblo of Pojoaque, New Mexico; Pueblo of San 
Felipe, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Ildefonso, New Mexico; Pueblo of San 
Juan, New Mexico; Pueblo of Sandia, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Ana, 
New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Clara, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santo Domingo, 
New Mexico; Pueblo of Taos, New Mexico; Pueblo of Tesuque, New Mexico; 
Pueblo of Zia, New Mexico; San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos 
Reservation, Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; White Mountain 
Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona; Yavapai-Apache 
Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona; Ysleta del Sur 
Pueblo of Texas; and Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico.
    Between 1914 and 1916, human remains representing a minimum of two 
individuals were removed from Pecos Pueblo in San Miguel County, NM, by 
A.V. Kidder during the Andover Pecos Expedition. The human remains were 
donated to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology by the 
Andover Archaeological Department in 1919. No known individuals were 
identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of eight 
individuals were removed from Pecos Pueblo in San Miguel County, NM, by 
an unknown person. The human remains were received by the Peabody 
Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at an unknown date and were 
accessioned into the museum collections in 2000. No known individuals 
were identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    The ceramic types recovered from Pecos Pueblo indicate that the 
site was occupied into the Historic period (circa A.D. 1300-1700). 
Historic records document occupation at the site until 1838 when the 
last inhabitants left the Pueblo and went to the Pueblo of Jemez. In 
1936, an Act of Congress recognized the Pueblo of Jemez as a 
``consolidation'' and ``merger'' of the Pueblo of Pecos and the Pueblo 
of Jemez; this Act further recognizes that all property, rights, 
titles, interests, and claims of both Pueblos were consolidated under 
the Pueblo of Jemez. Further evidence supporting a shared group 
identity between the Pecos and Jemez pueblos emerges in numerous 
aspects of present-day Jemez life. The 1992-1993 Pecos Ethnographic 
Project (unrelated to NAGPRA) states, ``[T]he cultural evidence of 
Pecos living traditions are 1) the official tribal government position 
of a Second Lieutenant/ Pecos Governor; 2) the possession of the Pecos 
Pueblo cane of office; 3) the statue and annual feast day of Porcingula 
(Nuestra Senora de los Angeles) on August 2; 4) the Eagle Watchers' 
Society; 5) the migration of Pecos people in the early nineteenth 
century; and 6) the knowledge of the Pecos language by a few select 
elders.'' (Levine 1994:2-3)
    Officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology have 
determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains 
described above represent the physical remains of 10 individuals of 
Native American ancestry. Officials of the Peabody Museum of 
Archaeology and Ethnology 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 Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Patricia 
Capone, Repatriation Coordinator, Peabody Museum of Archaeology and 
Ethnology, Harvard University, 11 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138, 
telephone (617) 496-3702, before July 1, 2005. Repatriation of the 
human remains to the Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico may proceed after that 
date if no additional claimants come forward.
    The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology is responsible for 
notifying the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of 
Arizona; Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico; Mescalero Apache Tribe of 
the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico; Navajo Nation, Arizona, New
