At an unknown time between 1904 and 1908, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from the Fort Lincoln site, Morton County, ND, by Ernst R. Steinbrueck. The Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology purchased Mr. Steinbrueck’s Fort Lincoln site collections in 1910. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The Fort Lincoln site is the historically documented On–A–Slant Village. Based on stylistic characteristics of lithic, ceramic, bone, and shell artifacts (but which are not in the museum’s possession), the village was occupied between A.D. 1550 – 1675. 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. 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. Peabody Museum of Archaeology 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 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 Malinda S. Blustain, Director, Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology, Phillips Academy, Andover, MA 01810, telephone (978) 749–4490, before November 30, 2007. Repatriation of the human remains to the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology is responsible for notifying the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Montana; Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of the Cheyenne River Reservation, South Dakota; Crow Creek Sioux Tribe of the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:45 Oct 30, 2007 Jkt 214001 Crow Creek Reservation, South Dakota; Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe of South Dakota; Lower Brule Sioux Tribe of the Lower Brule Reservation, South Dakota; Lower Sioux Community of Minnesota; Oglala Sioux Tribe of the Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota; Prairie Island Indian Community in the State of Minnesota; Rosebud Sioux Tribe of the Rosebud Indian Reservation, South Dakota; Santee Sioux Nation, Nebraska; Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota; Sisseton– Wahpeton Oyate of the Lake Traverse Reservation, South Dakota; Spirit Lake Tribe, North Dakota; Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North & South Dakota; Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota; Upper Sioux Community, Minnesota; and Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota that this notice has been published.

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.

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. 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 Chickasaw Nation, Oklahoma; Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; Jena Band of Choctaw Indians, Louisiana; Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, Mississippi; and Tunica–Biloxi Indian Tribe of Louisiana. In 1918, human remains representing a minimum of seven individuals were removed from the Alligator Mounds Site in Alligator, Bolivar County, MS, by Charles Peabody under the auspices of the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology. No known individuals were identified. The 24 associated funerary objects are 24 fragmentary faunal remains. The Alligator Mounds Site was occupied in the Hushpucken Phase of the Late Prehistoric Mississippian Phase (A.D. 1350–1550) based on ceramic typologies from the site. The location of Alligator Mounds is southwest of the Tunica village of Quizquiz that the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:45 Oct 30, 2007 Jkt 214001 Spanish encountered in A.D. 1541. Tunica oral history also supports the location of the tribe in this area. Both oral tradition and various European documents record the movement of the Tunica from this area to their current location at Marksville, LA. Descendents of the Tunica people are members of the Tunica–Biloxi Indian Tribe of Louisiana. The individuals from the Alligator Mounds Site are culturally affiliated with the Tunica–Biloxi Indian Tribe of Louisiana based on oral tradition, geographical evidence, and historical evidence of population movement. 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 seven individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the 24 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 Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology 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 Tunica–Biloxi Indian Tribe of Louisiana.
