The human remains were removed from Gig Harbor, Pierce County, WA. 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 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 the Slater Museum of Natural History, University of Puget Sound professional staff with help from a consultant in consultation with representatives of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot Reservation, Washington; Nisqually Indian Tribe of the Nisqually Reservation, Washington; Puyallup VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:34 Jun 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington; Squaxin Island Tribe of the Squaxin Indian Reservation, Washington; and Suquamish Indian Tribe of the Port Madison Reservation, Washington. At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from the vicinity of Gig Harbor, Pierce County, WA, probably by Frank D’Andrea. Mr. D’Andrea’s name is on a piece of cardboard that accompanies the human remains. There was no additional documentation with this set of human remains in the museum records. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from the vicinity of Gig Harbor, Pierce County, WA, by Howard Richardson. Mr. Richardson donated the human remains to the museum in 1935. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from the vicinity of Gig Harbor, Pierce County, WA. The human remains were donated to the museum in 1939. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The catalog and information with the human remains indicate that the three individuals were found in the vicinity of Gig Harbor. 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 Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington. Officials of the Slater Museum of Natural History, University of Puget Sound, reasonably believe based on provenience, museum and donor records, historical documentation, and tribal consultation that the human remains share a common ancestry with members of tribes now represented by the Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington. Officials of the Slater Museum of Natural History, University of Puget Sound have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of three individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Slater Museum of Natural History, University of Puget Sound also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30829 reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington.

The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the

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 University

Colorado Museum professional staff in consultation with representatives 
of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma and Three Affiliated Tribes of the 
Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota.
    On an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one 
individual were removed from an unknown location, by an unknown 
individual. The human remains were donated to the University of 
Colorado Museum by an anonymous donor. Based on the sequence of the 
catalog number (Catalog number 06498), the human remains were cataloged 
between 1947 and 1948. No known individual was identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    Based on the morphology of the teeth and mandible, the human 
remains represent a Native American adult female. The entry in the 
original museum ledger states, ``Jaw (lower) of Arikara Indian.''
    Arikara and Pawnee ancestors have been identified archeologically 
as the Upper Republican phase of the Central Plains Village tradition 
in Kansas and Nebraska. Both groups lived in earthen lodges in compact 
villages that were sometimes fortified. They were separate bands of 
Caddoan speakers living together, but spoke distinct Caddoan dialects, 
until just prior to European contact, when the Arikara moved north. 
Today the Arikara live in North Dakota, where they settled on a 
reservation with the Sioux-speaking Mandan and Hidatsa, and are 
federally recognized as the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort 
Berthold Reservation, North Dakota. The Pawnee Nation resides in north-

ceding much of Nebraska. Officials of the University of Colorado Museum 
based on the preponderance of the evidence, including museum records, 
reasonably believes the human remains are Arikara or Pawnee. 
Descendants of the Arikara are members of the Three Affiliated Tribes 
of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota. Descendants of the 
Pawnee are members of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma.
    Officials of the University of Colorado 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 University of Colorado 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 Pawnee Nation of 
Oklahoma and 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 Steve 
Lekson, Curator of Anthropology, University of Colorado Museum, 
Henderson Building, Campus Box 218, Boulder, CO 80309-0218, telephone 
(303) 492-6671, before July 5, 2007. Repatriation of the human remains 
to the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation may 
proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward.
    The University of Colorado Museum is responsible for notifying the 
Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma and Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort 
Berthold Reservation, North Dakota that this notice has been published.
