A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Burke Museum professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Washington and Spokane Tribe of the Spokane Reservation, Washington. In 1931, human remains representing a minimum of three individuals were removed from the east end of Kettle Falls state bridge in Stevens County, WA. The human remains were removed by Verne Ray who identified the burial as a ‘‘Colville burial.’’ Museum accession records do not state how this determination was made. The human PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 remains were accessioned by the Burke Museum in 1931 (Burke Accession. #2562). No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on the geographic and accession documentation, the preponderance of evidence demonstrates that the three individuals are of Native American ancestry. Kettle Falls has been a historically important center for fishing and trading for Native Americans (Ruby and Brown 1986:36). Kettle Falls is located within the aboriginal territory of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Washington. Early and late ethnographic sources identify Kettle Falls as an area associated with either the Colville or the Lakes tribes or bands (Kennedy and Bouchard 1998; Mooney 1896; Ray 1936; Spier 1936; Swanton 1952). Both the Colville and the Lakes tribes were part of the twelve tribes or bands that comprise the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Washington. The Colville Reservation was created by Executive Order in 1872. Descendants of the Colville and Lakes tribes are members of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Washington.

completion of an inventory of human remains in the control of the 
Thomas Burke Memorial Washington State Museum (Burke Museum), 
University of Washington, Seattle, WA. The human remains were removed 
from Judd Creek on Vashon Island, King County, WA.

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 Burke Museum 
and University of Washington professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot 
Reservation, Washington and Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, 
Washington.
    In 1951, human remains representing a minimum of one individual 
were removed from Vashon Island near Judd Creek in King County, WA, by 
landowner Vernon Lamoreux. The human remains were donated to the Burke 
Museum in 1951, but were not formally accessioned until 1965 (Burke 
Accn. 1965-78). No known individual was identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    Based on geographic location and after further review by a 
University of Washington physical anthropologist, the human remains 
have been determined to be Native American. Although the cranium is 
highly fragmented, morphological evidence such as the presence of 
wormian bones and cranial deformity typical of Native American remains 
is evident. Vashon Island is within the usual and accustomed territory 
of the Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington. The 
S'Homamish occupied Vashon Island during the mid 1800s. In 1854, George 
Gibbs identified the Puyallupahmish, T'Kawkamish, and S'Homamish as 
being from the Puyallup River and Vashon Island area. Under the terms 
of the Treaty of Medicine Creek, the S'Homamish people were removed to 
the Puyallup Reservation. Descendants of the S'Homamish are members of 
the Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington.
    Officials of the Burke Museum 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 Burke Museum 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 Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. 
Peter Lape, Burke Museum, University of Washington, Box 353010, 
Seattle, WA 98195-3010], telephone (206) 685-2282, before September 18, 
2006. Repatriation of the human remains to the Puyallup Tribe of the 
Puyallup Reservation, Washington may proceed after that date if no 
additional claimants come forward.
    The Burke Museum is responsible for notifying the Muckleshoot 
Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot Reservation, Washington, and Puyallup 
Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington that this notice has been 
published.
