Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 195 / Tuesday, October 7, 2008 / Notices Kanadesaga was the large eastern village of the Seneca dating to circa A.D. 1754–1779, and the home of the Seneca chief Sayenqueraghta, known also as ‘‘Old King’’ and ‘‘Old Smoke.’’ Contemporary accounts referred to Kanadesaga as the ‘‘Seneca Castle,’’ and the village’s prominence on the political landscape was recognized by colonial leaders. The settlement was the site of a blockhouse built on Sir William Johnson’s orders, which was the place of residence and workplace of several colonial blacksmiths to the Seneca, briefly the home of Reverend Samuel Kirkland, and a base for Butler’s Rangers during the American Revolution. The settlement was destroyed by the American Sullivan-Clinton Campaign in 1779. In the mid–19th century, E.G. Squier and Lewis H. Morgan describe the site and associate the burial mound with the village’s Seneca occupants. Morgan reported that Indians made annual visits to the burial mound. Historical evidence and oral history indicates that the sites discussed above are located in a region that was occupied by the Seneca Indians from A.D. 1450–1779. Archeological evidence indicated that these sites were occupied during the time of Seneca occupation of the region. Based on historical evidence, oral history, and archeological evidence, the human remains and associated funerary objects are identified by officials of the New York State Museum as being Seneca. Descendants of the Seneca are represented by the Seneca Nation of New York, Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma, and Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New York. Officials of the New York State Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of 54 individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the New York State Museum also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the 164 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 New York State 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 Seneca Nation of New York, SenecaCayuga Tribe of Oklahoma, and Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New York.
