The Ho–Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma, Otoe–Missouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma, and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska traditionally occupied areas that have been demonstrated to include sites in Illinois. The tribes at one time constituted a single tribe with shared cultural affiliation. Specific published works cite the Ho–Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma, Otoe–Missouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma; and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, as having villages in Illinois that included mound building cultural practices. Based on the preponderance of the evidence, including the primary body of Dr. Neumann’s work in Illinois, and collection records, officials of the Oregon State University Department of Anthropology reasonably believe that the human remains are affiliated with the Ho–Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma, Otoe– Missouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma, and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Officials of the Oregon State University Department of Anthropology 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 Oregon State University Department of Anthropology have also 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 Ho–Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska; Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma; Otoe–Missouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma; and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. David McMurray, Oregon State University Department of Anthropology, 238 Waldo Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331, telephone (541) 737–4515, before June 23, 2008. Repatriation of the human remains to the Ho–Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward.

Between 1930 and 1959, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an unknown mound site in Illinois, by George Karl Neumann, a physical anthropologist working out of Indiana State University, Terre Haute, IN. In 1976, the Oregon State University Department of Anthropology acquired the Neumann Collection from Indiana State University. This individual is referenced in the accession records as N104. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Dr. Neumann collected human remains from several archeological projects with a focus on archeological mound sites, skeletal characteristics of Native American races, and general human physical variation and skeletal morphology. The culmination of this research is published as ‘‘Archaeology and Race in the American Indian,’’ in the 1952 Yearbook of Physical Anthropology Vol. 8. The Neumann Collection contained numerous Native American human remains, the majority of which are from sites associated with Mound Builder cultures. Evidence in the collection records indicates that N104 is Native American and is from one of the mound sites excavated by Dr. Neumann. The human remains are determined to be Native American based on skeletal morphology and collection records.

Notice. 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 and associated funerary objects in the possession of San Francisco State University, Department of Anthropology, San Francisco, CA. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Marin County, CA. 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. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by San Francisco State University, Department of Anthropology professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, California. From 1980 to 1985, human remains representing a minimum of five individuals were removed from CA– MRN–17, De Silva Island, Richardson Bay, Marin County, CA, by San Francisco State University staff under the direction of Gary Pahl. Materials from the excavations were jointly curated by San Francisco State University and Sonoma State University Anthropological Studies Center until 1998, when all excavated materials from CA–MRN–17 were transferred to San Francisco State University. No known individuals were identified. The 17 associated funerary objects are 1 elk bone awl, 3 obsidian flakes, 2 lots of obsidian debitage, 1 chert flake, 1 core, 1 scraper, 2 lots of chert debitage, 2 pieces of ground stone, and 4 carbon samples. PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Site CA–MRN–17 is a shell mound that contains hearths and interments. The five individuals described above were found in three burials. One burial was radiocarbon dated to A.D. 65±115. This date is consistent with archeological and linguistic evidence for the presence of ancestors of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, California. A second burial was radiocarbon dated to 3480±145 B.C. This burial represents one of the earliest Native American human remains recorded in the San Francisco Bay area. Archeological and linguistic research does not indicate a clear cultural affiliation for Native American human remains from this early period. However, consultation with tribal representatives indicates that the human remains are culturally affiliated with the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, California. Since the archeological and linguistic data are unresolved, and the tribe has stated a desire to repatriate the human remains, it is the opinion of officials of San Francisco State University given the totality of the circumstances, that the human remains from site CA–MRN–17 are reasonably believed to be culturally affiliated with the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, California. At an unknown date prior to 1962, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from the San Anselmo Shellheap site (CA–MRN–74), Marin County, CA. The information on removal is according to Department of Anthropology records. At an unknown date, the human remains were donated to the San Francisco State University Department of Anthropology by an unknown person. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The age of CA–MRN–74 is unknown. The human remains were removed from a Native American shell midden located within the historically documented territory of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, California. The preponderance of available evidence, indicates that the human remains are culturally affiliated with the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, California. Between 1969 and 1971, human remains representing a minimum of eight individuals were removed from the Miller Creek Site (CA–MRN–138), Marin County, CA, by San Francisco State University staff under the direction of Charles Slaymaker and Michael Moratto. No known individuals were identified. The six associated funerary objects are one obsidian point, one shell bead, and four ochre fragments. E:\FR\FM\23MYN1.SGM 23MYN1

Notice of Inventory Completion: Oregon State University 
Department of Anthropology, Corvallis, OR

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 Oregon 
State University Department of Anthropology, Corvallis, OR. The human 
remains were removed from mound sites in central Illinois.
    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. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Oregon State 
University Department of Anthropology professional staff in 
consultation with representatives of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; 
Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska; Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Indians, 
Oklahoma; and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
    Between 1930 and 1959, human remains representing a minimum of one 
individual were removed from an unknown mound site in Illinois, by 
George Karl Neumann, a physical anthropologist working out of Indiana 
State University, Terre Haute, IN. In 1976, the Oregon State University 
Department of Anthropology acquired the Neumann Collection from Indiana 
State University. This individual is referenced in the accession 
records as N104. No known individual was identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    Dr. Neumann collected human remains from several archeological 
projects with a focus on archeological mound sites, skeletal 
characteristics of Native American races, and general human physical 
variation and skeletal morphology. The culmination of this research is 
published as ``Archaeology and Race in the American Indian,'' in the 
1952 Yearbook of Physical Anthropology Vol. 8. The Neumann Collection 
contained numerous Native American human remains, the majority of which 
are from sites associated with Mound Builder cultures. Evidence in the 
collection records indicates that N104 is Native American and is from 
one of the mound sites excavated by Dr. Neumann.
    The human remains are determined to be Native American based on 
skeletal morphology and collection records. The Ho-Chunk Nation of 
Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, Otoe-Missouria Tribe of 
Indians, Oklahoma, and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska have provided both 
written and oral history of their traditional occupation of Midwest 
areas east of the Mississippi and have demonstrated land area claims in 
Illinois. The Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of Kansas and 
Nebraska, Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma, Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Indians, 
Oklahoma, and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska traditionally occupied areas 
that have been demonstrated to include sites in Illinois. The tribes at 
one time constituted a single tribe with shared cultural affiliation. 
Specific published works cite the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, Iowa 
Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma, Otoe-Missouria 
Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma, and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, as having 
villages in Illinois that included mound building cultural practices. 
Based on the preponderance of the evidence, including the primary body 
of Dr. Neumann's work in Illinois,

and collection records, officials of the Oregon State University 
Department of Anthropology reasonably believe that the human remains 
are affiliated with the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of 
Kansas and Nebraska, Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma, Otoe-Missouria Tribe of 
Indians, Oklahoma, and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
    Officials of the Oregon State University Department of Anthropology 
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 Oregon State 
University Department of Anthropology have also 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 Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Iowa Tribe of 
Kansas and Nebraska; Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma; Otoe-Missouria Tribe of 
Indians, Oklahoma; and Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. 
David McMurray, Oregon State University Department of Anthropology, 238 
Waldo Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331, telephone (541) 737-4515, before June 
23, 2008. Repatriation of the human remains to the Ho-Chunk Nation of 
Wisconsin, Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, and Winnebago Tribe of 
Nebraska may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come 
forward.
    Oregon State University Department of Anthropology is responsible 
for notifying the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of the Cheyenne River 
Reservation, South Dakota; Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Oklahoma; 
Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; Forest County Potawatomi Community, 
Wisconsin; Hannahville Indian Community, Michigan; Ho-Chunk Nation of 
Wisconsin; Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska; Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma;
