SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This PRMP/FEIS covers all the public land resources administered by the BLM in the States of Alabama and Mississippi. The issues addressed in the PRMP/FEIS are mineral leasing and ownership adjustment of the scattered surface tracts. Within the two States combined, the BLM administers approximately 333 acres of public land surface and mineral estate and 621,090 acres of Federal minerals where the surface estate is in non-Federal ownership. The BLM also has responsibility for 2,081,880 acres of mineral estate where the surface is managed by other Federal agencies, including 1,871,550 acres of National Forest lands. On these lands, leasing of Federal minerals is subject to management as directed by the surface managing agency, and the decisions of this RMP will pertain only to the BLM’s role in administering the minerals. The RMP will not make decisions on oil and gas leasing of National Forest acreage, because by regulation the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) is responsible for land use planning decisions on oil and gas leasing. Within the two States, there are also 9,788 acres of lands with uncertain title. These are public domain lands according to General Land Office records, but may have private claims of ownership. The RMP will not make management decisions on these lands per se; however, these lands will be available for disposal to qualified applicants under the Color-of-Title Act. Public participation was solicited during the formation of the Draft RMP/ EIS through public meetings in Gulf Shore, AL; Birmingham, AL; and Jackson, MS. Comments on the Draft RMP/EIS received from the public and internal BLM review were incorporated into the proposed plan. Public comments resulted in the addition of clarifying text, but did not significantly change proposed land use decisions. Instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM regarding the PRMP/FEIS may be found in the Dear Reader Letter of the Alabama and Mississippi PRMP/FEIS and at 43 CFR 1610.5. E-mail and faxed protests will not be accepted as valid protests unless the protesting party also provides the original letter by either regular or overnight mail postmarked by the close of the protest period. Under these conditions, the BLM will consider the email or faxed protest as an advance copy and it will receive full consideration. If you wish to provide the BLM with such advance notification, please direct faxed PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50983 protests to the attention of the BLM protest coordinator at 202–452–5112, and e-mails to Brenda_HudgensWilliams@blm.gov. All protests, including the follow-up letter (if emailing or faxing) must be in writing and mailed to the address(es) set forth in the ADDRESSES section, above. Before including your phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your protest, you should be aware that your entire protest—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your protest to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Dated: March 25, 2008.

E8–19950 Filed 8–28–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–DQ–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service Notice of Intent to Repatriate a Cultural Item: Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Denver, CO National Park Service, Interior. Notice. AGENCY: mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 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 Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Denver, CO, which meets the definitions of ‘‘sacred object’’ and ‘‘object of cultural patrimony’’ 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 ‘‘piki stone’’ from the Pueblo of Cochiti, New Mexico (A661.1). The piki stone is a sandstone slab, measuring approximately 26 x 19 x 2 inches, with the top surface blackened from baking. On November 10, 1972, the museum purchased the stone for $150 from Mr. Juan Melchoir of Cochiti Pueblo. Museum accession notes indicate that the stone dates to about 1930 and ‘‘was used by his family for several generations for baking piki bread.’’ The stone has long been a part of the museum’s ‘‘Hopi House’’ exhibit VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:32 Aug 28, 2008 Jkt 214001 in the Crane American Indian Cultures Hall. During a consultation in the early 1990s, a group of council representatives from the Pueblo of Cochiti, New Mexico visited the museum and identified the stone as coming from the pueblo and determined that it was a sacred object and object of cultural patrimony; however, a formal claim was not officially submitted until 2006. The claim states that the Pueblo of Cochiti believes the stone ‘‘was stored by Mr. Melchoir during remodeling phases of a traditional cooking building and sold to the individual who’’ sold it to the museum and could not have been alienated by Mr. Melchoir, and thus is an object of cultural patrimony. The formal claim also states that the stone ‘‘was used, and if repatriated would continue to be used, in traditional cooking ceremonies, conducted throughout the year by appointed Cochiti women, during times of traditional society events. These events involve many culturally sensitive ceremonies in which cooking, and piki bread, are of major significance to conduct the ceremony.’’ Thus, the claim asserts that the stone is also a sacred object. ‘‘Piki’’ is a borrowed Hopi term to describe the wafer bread, while some use the Tewa term guayave, or a variation thereof; and at Cochiti it is ma’tzin. At Cochiti, the ‘‘piki stone’’ itself is also referred to as a comal or yo’asha. The anthropology and documentary literature has little information about yo’asha at the Pueblo of Cochiti. The few references that could be found would suggest that such stones are ‘‘privately owned real property’’ which can be owned, exchanged, traded, purchased, and inherited. Although the tribe concurs that some stones are privately held, during consultation, the Pueblo of Cochiti offered compelling evidence that a few special ones are communally owned and are stored in communal piki houses. They are used by community members for specific ceremonies, thus making them objects of cultural patrimony and sacred objects. Because museum documentation states that the stone in this notice was sold by Mr. Melchoir, the Pueblo knows its history, and that it was used by the entire community for religious events. Mr. Melchoir was responsible for the piki house in which the stone was placed, but the tribe claims that the people knew it was a house for everyone. Each year, specific leaders are appointed to do things on behalf of the entire community. According to tribal consultation, currently there is one PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50985 communal piki house with one stone, an example of a shared place for making ma’tzin for ceremonies. The stone in the museum’s possession came from a house of this type, and if returned, will go back into this particular house. Anthropology and documentary literature does confirm that piki bread is used by many pueblos during religious ceremonies. For the people of Cochiti, ma’tzin was a traditional everyday foodstuff, but it was also eaten on religious feast days and for celebrations. The Pueblo of Cochiti concurs that ma’tzin was an everyday food item, but also emphasizes that it could have deep religious meanings at particular times and events. The Publeo of Chociti NAGPRA representative, Mr. Lee Suina, explained, ‘‘You can go to a restaurant and have wine and bread, but when you go to church and eat wine and bread, it has more meaning. Since we know the piki was for this specific reason, then it’s special. It’s not an everyday form of bread, in this case.’’ Mr. Suina explained that prayers were likely offered when the stone was quarried, and prayers were offered when the stone was used to make ma’tzin for numerous ceremonies. Officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(C), the cultural item is a specific ceremonial object needed by traditional Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by their present-day adherents. Officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science have also determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(D), the cultural item has ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, rather than property owned by an individual. Lastly, officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is a relationship of shared group identity which can be reasonably traced between the sacred object/object of cultural patrimony and the Pueblo of Cochiti, New Mexico. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the sacred object/object of cultural patrimony should contact Dr. Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, Curator of Anthropology and NAGPRA Officer, Department of Anthropology, Denver Museum of Nature & Science, 2001 Colorado Boulevard, Denver, CO 80205, telephone (303) 370–6378, before September 29, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Price RMP planning area is located in 
central Utah. The BLM administers approximately 2.5 million acres of 
surface estate and 2.8 million acres of Federal mineral estate within 
the planning area.
    The Price RMP will provide future broad-scale management direction 
for land use allocations and allowable uses on public lands within the 
planning area. Implementation of the decisions of the PRMP/FEIS would 
apply only to BLM-administered public lands and Federal mineral estate. 
In the Draft RMP/EIS (DRMP/DEIS), which was released for public review 
and comment in July 2004, five alternatives were analyzed, including a 
No Action alternative. These alternatives were developed through issue 
identification during the scoping process. Public involvement and 
collaboration began with scoping to identify issues, concerns, and 
opportunities to be resolved in the planning process. Input on planning 
issues was gathered from the public during a comment period and 
associated open houses. The major issues addressed in the PRMP/DEIS 
include: oil and gas leasing and development; management of recreation 
opportunities in Special Recreation Management Areas (SRMAs), 
designation of routes for off-highway vehicle (OHV) travel, livestock 
grazing, management of Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs), 
and recommendations for Wild and Scenic Rivers (WSR) designations. In 
September 2007 a Supplemental DEIS was released for public review and 
comment which considered an additional alternative emphasizing the 
protection of non-WSA lands with wilderness characteristics. The PRMP/
FEIS would designate five new ACECs, and the continuation of eight 
existing ACECs, totaling 206,965 acres. Resource use limitations that 
apply to the proposed ACECs include a range of prescriptions as 
described in Table 1 below.

    Comments on the Price Field Office DRMP/DEIS received from the 
public and internal BLM review were considered and incorporated as 
appropriate into the PRMP/FEIS. Public comments resulted in the 
addition of clarifying text, but did not significantly change proposed 
land use plan decisions.
    Instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM 
regarding the PRMP/FEIS may be found in the Dear Reader Letter of the 
PRMP/FEIS and at 43 CFR 1610.5-2. E-mail and faxed protests will not be 
accepted as valid protests unless the protesting party also provides 
the original letter by either regular or overnight mail postmarked by 
the close of the protest period.
    Under these conditions, the BLM will consider the e-mail or faxed 
protest as an advance copy and it will receive full consideration. If 
you wish to provide the BLM with such advance notification, please 
direct faxed protests to the attention of the BLM protest coordinator 
at 202-452-5112, and e-mails to Brenda_Hudgens-Williams@blm.gov.
    All protests, including the follow-up letter (if e-mailing or 
faxing) must be in writing and mailed to the appropriate

address, as set forth in the ADDRESSES section above.
    Before including your phone number, e-mail address, or other 
personal identifying information in your protest, you should be aware 
that your entire protest--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your protest to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.

    Authority: 40 CFR 1506.6, 43 CFR 1610.2, 43 CFR 1610.5-1.
