objects in the possession of The State Museum of Pennsylvania,

PA.
    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 and associated funerary objects. The National 
Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice.
    This notice corrects the identity of consulting parties and 
cultural affiliation in a Notice of Inventory Completion previously 
published in the Federal Register on October 26, 2000 (FR Doc 00-27395, 
pages 64232-64233) by the addition of the Stockbridge Munsee Community, 
Wisconsin and by the replacement of the Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma for 
the Delaware Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma due to the latter group's loss 
of federal recognition and standing as a NAGPRA entity.
    In the Federal Register of October 26, 2000, paragraph number 3 is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by The State 
Museum of Pennsylvania professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of 
Indians (now part of the Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma); and Stockbridge 
Munsee Community, Wisconsin.
    In the Federal Register of October 26, 2000, paragraph numbers 14 
and 15 are corrected by substituting the following paragraphs:
    Officials of The State Museum of Pennsylvania have determined that, 
pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains listed above 
represent the physical remains of 58 individuals of Native American 
ancestry. Officials of The State Museum of Pennsylvania also have 
determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the 18,431 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 The State Museum of 
Pennsylvania 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 Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma, on behalf of the 
Delaware Tribe of Indians; Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; and Stockbridge 
Munsee Community, Wisconsin.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary 
objects should contact Janet L. Johnson, Curator, The State Museum of 
Pennsylvania, 300 North Street, Harrisburg, PA 17120-0024, telephone 
(717) 705-0869, before November 30, 2007. Repatriation of the human 
remains and associated funerary objects to the Cherokee Nation,
