The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Slater Museum of Natural History, University of Puget Sound professional staff and a consultant in consultation with representatives of the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Traditional Government. In the summer of 1953, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals were removed from a site between the Native Village of Barrow, AK, and the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory, by Stewart Lowther, a geologist. In July 2006, after Dr. Lowther retired, the human remains were brought to the Slater Museum of Natural History. There is no additional information regarding the collection and subsequent transfer of the human remains to the museum. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The individuals are most likely of Native American ancestry as indicated by morphological features. The geographical location where the human remains were recovered is consistent with the historically documented territory of the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Traditional Government. Furthermore, based on information provided during consultation with tribal representatives, there is a reasonable belief that the human remains share a common ancestry with members of the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Traditional Government. Officials of the Slater Museum of Natural History have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above likely represent the physical remains of two individuals of Native American ancestry.
