Archeological research, historical documentation, and oral history all confirm that the Mandan Tribe lived in the Knife–Heart River region of the Great Plains, where the Fort Lincoln site is located, during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Oral history indicates that On–A–Slant Village was a Mandan community. Descendents of the Mandan Tribe are members of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota.

AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains in the control of the Robert S.

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 Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Narragansett Indian Tribe of Rhode Island. In 1935, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61673 removed from the Huntington Farm site in Perryville, Washington County, RI, by Douglas S. Byers under the auspices of the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The Huntington Farm site was occupied in the Late Woodland/Contact Period based on lithic objects, preservation of the wood and human remains in the burial, and burial practices. The area around Washington County was in the territory of the Narragansett people at the time of contact with Europeans. Various European settlers document the presence of the Narragansett people in the Narragansett Bay during the 16th and 17th centuries. Descendants of the Narragansett are members of the Narragansett Indian Tribe of Rhode Island. In addition, most of the presentday Narragansett tribal members continue to live in the Washington County area today. Based on burial practices, historic documents and geographic evidence, the officials of the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology reasonably believe the human remains are culturally affiliated with the Narragansett Indian Tribe of Rhode Island. Officials of the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology 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 Robert S.
