ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Air Force (USAF) has filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management that proposes to extend the duration of Public Land Order (PLO) No. 6706 for an additional 20-year term. PLO No. 6706 withdrew 4,606.70 acres of public land from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the general land laws, including the United States mining laws (30 U.S.C. Ch. 2), and from leasing under the mineral leasing laws, to protect the United States Air Force Indian Mountain Research Site. This notice also provides an opportunity for the public to comment on the proposed action and to request a public meeting. DATES: Comments and requests for a public meeting must be received by December 9, 2008. ADDRESSES: Comments and meeting requests should be sent to the BLM Alaska State Director, Attn: Renee Fencl, Alaska State Office, 222 West 7th Avenue, No. 13, Anchorage, Alaska 99513–7504.

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 cultural items in the possession of the Field Museum of Natural History (Field Museum), Chicago, IL, that meet the definition of ‘‘unassociated funerary objects’’ 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 items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. The two cultural items are a rattle and a worked walrus tusk. The rattle (catalog number 78326) is carved wood with shell or glass bead PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 rattlers. It is painted with blue and red mineral paints. The body of the rattle represents an oyster catcher. The handle of the rattle is wrapped with a strip of black leather, and string is wrapped around the upper neck of the oyster catcher. It measures approximately 13 inches long and 3 inches wide. The worked walrus tusk (catalog number 78074) is comprised of four sections. Each section measures approximately 11 inches long. According to Field Museum records, the walrus tusk sections were ‘‘found in an old cave on a small Island in Icy Straits where a Shaman of the ‘Hoonah’ tribe was laid away.’’ The rattle was ‘‘believed to have come from an old grave house on the shores of Frederick Bay, near the village of ‘Gan-der-kan,’ of the ‘Hoonah tribe’.’’ At an unknown date, Lieutenant Emmons acquired the walrus tusk sections and rattle. In 1902, the Field Museum of Natural History purchased the cultural items from Lieutenant Emmons, and accessioned them into its collection that same year. The cultural affiliation of the two cultural items is Hoonah Tlingit, as indicated through museum records and consultation with representatives of the Hoonah Indian Association. Officials of the Field Museum of Natural History have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(B), the two cultural items 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 a death rite or ceremony and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. Officials of the Field Museum of Natural History 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 unassociated funerary objects and the Hoonah Indian Association. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the unassociated funerary objects should contact Helen Robbins, Repatriation Director, Field Museum of Natural History, 1400 South Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605, telephone (312) 665–7317, before October 10, 2008. Repatriation of the unassociated funerary objects to the Hoonah Indian Association may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Field Museum of Natural History is responsible for notifying the Central Council of the Tlingit & Haida Indian Tribes, Hoonah Indian Association, E:\FR\FM\10SEN1.SGM 10SEN1
