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 object. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Alma College professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan. On March 13, 1920, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from a burial in sec. 5, T. 11 N., R. 3 W. (site 20GR287), Arcada Township, in Gratiot County, MI, by an unknown individual and subsequently donated to Alma College. No known individual was identified. The one associated funerary object is a pontel glass bottle that dates to circa 1740–1780. The location of the site is consistent with the historically documented territory of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan during the 18th and 19th centuries. Officials of Alma College 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 Alma College also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the one object described above is 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 Alma College 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 Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary object should contact Mary Theresa Bonhage-Freund, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Alma College, 614 W. Superior, Alma, MI 48801, telephone (989) 463–7186, before October 27, 2005.

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 cultural items in the possession of the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Homestead National Monument of America, Beatrice, NE, that meet the definition of ‘‘unassociated funerary objects’’ 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 superintendent, Homestead National Monument of America. The first two items are a string of ten beads and an arrowhead. The catalog card states that the beads came from a burial ground on the White Mountain Reservation in Arizona in 1898. A catalog card accompanying the beads states that they were donated to the Beatrice Museum by Paul S. Mayerhoff. Park museum records state that the string of ten beads and the arrowhead came into the park collection from an unknown source in 1964. However, the monument staff believe that they were in fact donated as part of the MayerhoffDietz collection that was donated in 1948 and cataloged in 1989. The third item is a set of 224 beads strung together on a wire. These beads are very similar to those described above. Accompanying the string of 224 beads is a note card that reads, ‘‘Indian Beads from an Indian Burial Ground, White Mountain Reservation, 1898, Arizona.’’ These beads are part of the Mayerhoff-Dietz collection that was donated in 1948 and cataloged in 1989. Officials of Homestead National Monument of America have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(B), the three cultural items 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 and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual.
