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 four cultural items are four Hopi ‘‘spirit friends’’ or Katsina masks (Matia, Hopak, Woe, and Mudhead). In 1966, Mrs. Agnese N. Haury purchased masks of the Hopi deities Matia, Hopak, and Woe at O’Reilly’s Plaza Art Galleries, Inc., in New York. Mrs. Haury donated the three Katsina masks to the University of Kansas in 1990. In 1992, the Karl Menninger Foundation donated a mask of the Hopi deity Mudhead to the University of Kansas. It is not known when or how Dr. Menninger acquired the Mudhead mask.

Representatives of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona also have identified the four cultural items as having ongoing historical, traditional, and cultural importance central to the culture itself, and the cultural items could not be alienated by any individual. Officials of the University of Kansas have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(C), the four cultural items described above are specific ceremonial objects needed by traditional Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by their present-day adherents. Officials of the University of Kansas also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(D), the four cultural items described above have ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, rather than property owned by an individual. Lastly, officials of the University of Kansas 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 sacred objects/objects of PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12193 cultural patrimony and the Hopi Tribe of Arizona.
