The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the Chief, Museum Collections Repository, Western Archeological and Conservation Center. This notice corrects the number of human remains and associated funerary objects reported in a notice of inventory completion published in the Federal Register on January 8, 2002. The error was identified by tribal representatives during consultation regarding repatriation of the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects identified in the published notice. In the Federal Register of January 8, 2002, FR Doc. 02–384, page 914, the following corrections are madeThe fourth paragraph is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: In 1959–1960, human remains representing 14 individuals were recovered from 4 sites during legally authorized excavations under the direction of National Park Service archeologist Wesley L. Bliss. The four sites were located along a linear transect through Cibola and McKinley Counties, NM, and Apache County, AZ, as part of the Transwestern Pipeline Project. No known individuals were identified. The fifth paragraph is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: Human remains representing two individuals were recovered from the TRW PPL L-WR–32 site. The four associated funerary objects are a Puerco black-on-white bowl, a bowl and one box of sherds of the White Mound black-on white ceramic type, and an Escavada black-on-white seed jar. Diagnostic artifacts found associated with the burials indicate that the human remains were buried during the Basketmaker III-Pueblo I phases (A.D. 500–950). The seventh paragraph is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: Human remains representing two individuals were recovered from the TRW PPL L-WR–43 site. The one associated funerary object is a Puerco black-on-red bowl.

Lastly, the manager of the Western Archeological and Conservation Center has 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 Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico; Pueblo of Zia, New Mexico; and Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico.

Officials of Pacific Lutheran University have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of two individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of Pacific Lutheran University also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the 56 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 Pacific Lutheran University 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 Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact David R. Huelsbeck, Anthropology Department, Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, WA 98447, telephone (253) 535–7196, before September 18, 2006.
