The O&M facility would be on a separate BLM parcel located approximately 7 miles from the wind energy facility. The proposed project would take approximately 7 months to construct. Issues that are anticipated to be addressed in this EIS and plan amendment include impacts to visual resources, noise, birds, socioeconomics, OHV use, hiking, hunting, electrical transmission capacity, and cumulative impacts. The CDCA Plan (1980, as amended), while recognizing the potential compatibility of wind generation facilities on public lands, requires that all power generating facilities be considered through the planning process. Planning criteria for consideration of a CDCA plan amendment to provide for power generation at this site include: a. The plan amendment will be completed in compliance with FLPMA, NEPA and all other applicable Federal and State laws, Executive orders, and management policies of the BLM; b. The plan amendment will recognize and conform to previous sitespecific planning decisions from BLM regional and bioregional plans; c. Where existing planning decisions are still valid, those decisions will remain unchanged; d. Where appropriate, this EIS will reference the BLM Programmatic Wind EIS (2005); e. For the purposes of cumulative analysis, past, present, and reasonably foreseeable projects will be those alternative energy projects which have been approved, or for which a draft or final plan of development has been received, or is anticipated prior to the release of the draft or final EIS, within the CDCA; f. The plan amendment and any rights-of way issued will recognize valid existing rights; and g. Interagency and Native American Tribal consultations will be conducted in accordance with policy, and will be given due consideration. The planning process will include the consideration of impacts on Indian trust assets, other jurisdictions, and agencies. Copies of the environmental assessment and initial study are not attached. Pursuant to NEPA Departmental Guidelines, in 516 DM 11.4, the Bureau of Land Management has opted to forego preparation of an environmental assessment and proceed directly to a draft EIS.

E8–11543 Filed 5–22–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4312–53–M DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service Notice of Intent to Repatriate a Cultural Item: The Nelson Gallery Foundation, Kansas City, MO National Park Service, Interior. Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate a cultural item in the possession of The Nelson Gallery PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30151 Foundation, Kansas City, MO, that meets the definition of ‘‘sacred object’’ under 25 U.S.C. 3001. 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 cultural item. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. The cultural item is a Prayer Stick (2002.5.1). It is carved from maple wood, measuring 6 3/4 inches by 1 1/ 2 inches by 1/4 inches. The central length of the object consists of an elongated, softly curved diamond shape terminating at the upper and lower ends in square configurations, surmounted at the top by a small diamond–shaped projection. Occupying the upper square of the front surface are incised images of a house and four trees. Below, occupying the length of the central panel, are three identical sets of carved symbols. All of these features conform to the classic form of other documented Kickapoo prayer sticks. Printed in ink on the reverse side are old catalogue numbers, E89A and M805A. In 1939, the prayer stick was collected on the Potawatomi Reservation in Kansas from Martha Jackson, a Kickapoo woman who apparently married into the Potawatomi tribe, by Floyd Schultz, a prominent Clay Center, KS, businessman and civic leader, who was also an amateur archeologist and ethnologist. Research suggests that Mr. Schultz obtained the prayer stick legally and ethically from Mrs. Jackson. Sometime within the ten years following Mr. Schultz’s death in 1951, the cultural item was sold by his widow to Pat Read, an Indian trader and art dealer based in Lawrence, KS, as part of a larger ethnographic collection. Mr. Read sold the piece in the mid–1960s to Mr. and Mrs. Larry Frank, Arroyo Hondo, NM. In 2002, The Nelson Gallery Foundation, which also does business as The Nelson–Atkins Museum of Art, purchased the cultural item from Mr. and Mrs. Frank. During consultation, members of the Kennekuk Church of the Kickapoo Tribe of Indians of the Kickapoo Reservation in Kansas presented evidence that the prayer stick met NAGPRA’s definition as a ‘‘sacred object’’ and is needed for the practice of a traditional Native American religion by present–day adherents. Officials of The Nelson Gallery Foundation have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(C), the one cultural item described above is a E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1
