    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 the San Diego Archaeological Center, San 
Diego, CA. The human remains and associated funerary objects were

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 Diego 
Archaeological Center professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Luiseno Nation, which is represented by the La 
Jolla Band of Luiseno Mission Indians of the La Jolla Reservation, 
California; Pala Band of Luiseno Mission Indians of the Pala 
Reservation, California; Pauma Band of Luiseno Mission Indians of the

Mission Indians of the Rincon Reservation, California; Soboba Band of 
Luiseno Indians, California; Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Luiseno Mission 
Indians of California; and San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians, a non-

    In 1981, human remains representing a minimum of one individual 
were removed from archeological sites CA-SDI-8629 and CA-SDI-8639H near 
Warner Springs in San Diego County, CA, as part of an archeological 
excavation performed in compliance with the California Environmental 
Quality Act (CEQA). On May 10, 2006, the collection was accessioned by 
the San Diego Archaeological Center, and assessed for objects eligible 
for repatriation in accordance with NAGPRA. No known individual was 
identified. The six associated funerary objects are one chipped stone 
projectile point, four shell beads and one cooking stone.
    The sites are located on the U.S. Geographical Survey topographic 
map of Warner Springs. The Warner Springs Ranch is located in the 
eastern part of San Diego County. The site falls within traditional 
Cupeno territory and is considered to be part of the ethnohistoric 
village of Cupa. The reporting archeologist surmised that artifacts 
from the test units gave a clear impression that the deposits relate to 
Late Prehistoric and historic times. Descendants of the Cupeno Nation 
(Cupa, Kuupangaxwichem) reside on the Pala reservation. The Pala 
reservation is also home to the Pala Band of Luiseno Mission Indians of 
the Pala Reservation, California, which is a member of the Luiseno

California; Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Luiseno Mission Indians of

above represent the physical remains of one individual of Native 
American ancestry. Officials of the San Diego Archaeological Center 
also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the six 
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 San Diego 
Archaeological Center 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 Luiseno Nation, which is 
represented by the La Jolla Band of Luiseno Mission Indians of the La 
Jolla Reservation, California; Pala Band of Luiseno Mission Indians of 
the Pala Reservation, California; Pauma Band of Luiseno Mission Indians
