Archeological evidence suggests the prairie was used by both western and eastern Washington Native American groups who traveled along the trails and roads through the prairie between Puget Sound and eastern Washington. In addition, there is a recorded ethnographic village to the south of Connell’s Prairie, which is associated with both the Muckleshoot and Puyallup Tribes. The Indian Claims Commission determined Connell’s Prairie to be outside the exclusive treaty–time territory of any Native American tribe. Connell’s Prairie was also the site of several events during the 1855–1856 Treaty Wars between various Native American groups and the U.S. Government. Native American participants in these wars include members of the present–day Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot Reservation, Washington; Nisqually Indian Tribe of the Nisqually Reservation, Washington; and Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington. Based on physical anthropological evidence, historic documentation, and associated funerary objects, the human remains are reasonably believed to be Native American and have a shared group relationship with the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot Reservation, Washington; Nisqually Indian Tribe of the Nisqually Reservation, Washington; and/or Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington. Officials of the Slater 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 Slater Museum also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the two 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 Slater Museum 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 Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot Reservation, Washington; Nisqually Indian Tribe of the Nisqually Reservation, Washington; and Puyallup VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:48 Jan 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary objects should contact Peter Wimberger, Director, Slater Museum of Natural History, University of Puget Sound, 1500 N. Warner, Tacoma, WA 98416, telephone (253) 879–2784, before February 14, 2008. Repatriation of the human remains and associated funerary objects to the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot Reservation, Washington; Nisqually Indian Tribe of the Nisqually Reservation, Washington; and Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Slater Museum is responsible for notifying the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe of the Muckleshoot Reservation, Washington; Nisqually Indian Tribe of the Nisqually Reservation, Washington; Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington; and Squaxin Island Tribe of the Squaxin Island Reservation, Washington that this notice has been published.

At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals were removed from the vicinity of Dash Point, Pierce County, WA, by Dr. T.H. Long. In October 1936, the human remains were given to the museum by Ms. Betty Long. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. 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 numerous historical and ethnographic reports documenting the territory of the Puyallup Tribe of the Puyallup Reservation, Washington. Dash Point is located within the revised boundaries of the Puyallup Indian Reservation (1857), which is bordered to the north by the boundary between King and Pierce Counties. The Indian Claims Commission determined Dash Point to be within the exclusive territory of the Puyallup Tribe at the time of treaty signing (17 Ind. Cl. Comm. 1, April 25, 1966).

Slater Museum of Natural History, University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, 
WA. The human remains were removed from Dash Point, 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

County, WA, by Dr. T.H. Long. In October 1936, the human remains were 
given to the museum by Ms. Betty Long. No known individuals were

the human remains described above represent the physical remains of two 
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
