In 1979, the unknown individual donated the collection to the Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa (BP2167). In 1980, human remains from this site had been reported on and reburied by the Office of the State Archaeologist. In 2007, a small fragment of tooth enamel was found, and determined to be human, and to represent one individual. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remain from 13LE136 has been identified as Native American based on the possible association of the tooth enamel with the earlier reburied human remains (BP2167). These human remains cannot be dated or identified with an archeological context. The Native American human remains described above fall into two main categories – known archeological manifestations (Archaic, Woodland, and Great Oasis) and general prehistoric. Because of the antiquity of the human remains and the lack of identifiable or traceable cultural continuity, no tribal affiliation could be established for the Archaic, Woodland, or Great Oasis period human remains. The general prehistoric human remains are either from known sites lacking diagnostic materials, archeological context, or insufficient osteological evidence; or they are from unknown locations. Officials of the Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of a minimum of 329 individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the 100 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 Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), a relationship of shared group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects and any present-day Indian tribe. The Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa administers the provisions in the Code of Iowa that provide for any human remains over VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:01 Oct 08, 2008 Jkt 217001 150 years old to be reburied in a state cemetery. The Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa and the State Historical Society of Iowa have in their possession the human remains of 329 Native American individuals from Iowa whose cultural affiliation is unknown, and 100 associated or possibly associated funerary objects. These human remains are considered ‘‘culturally unidentifiable’’ under NAGPRA, 43 C.F.R 10.10 (g). Federal regulations currently preclude disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains absent an overriding legal requirement or a recommendation from the Secretary of the Interior, 43 C.F.R 10.9 (e)(6). In 2004, the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist started to develop a process, in consultation with tribes with a historic interest in Iowa, for the disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains from Iowa. The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee (Review Committee) is responsible for recommending specific actions for disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains. In October 2004, the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa, the State Historical Society of Iowa, and the Office of the State Archaeologist Indian Advisory Council (a group composed of representatives of Native American tribes in and from Iowa) hosted a tribal conference where 21 Federally-recognized tribes and 1 non-federally recognized tribe were invited to develop the process for disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains and associated funerary objects from Iowa in possession of the Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa, and the State Historical Society of Iowa, in accordance with Iowa law (Code of Iowa 263B.8). Final drafting of the process was conducted through on-going tribal consultation involving phone calls, mail, and email. On May 30–31, 2006, the process developed through consultation was considered by the Review Committee. A June 14, 2006, letter on behalf of the Review Committee from the Designated Federal Officer provisionally authorized the Iowa Office of State Archaeologist to proceed with the development of the process for disposition. In 2007, the Iowa Office of State Archaeologist and the tribes completed the NAGPRA process document. A March 25, 2008, letter from the Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, as the designee for the Secretary of the Interior, transmitted the authorization for the disposition according to provisions of the Code of Iowa 263B.8 PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and the NAGPRA process document, subject to publication of a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register. This notice fulfills that requirement. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary objects should contact Shirley Schermer, Burials Program Director, Office of the State Archaeologist, 700 Clinton Street Building, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, telephone (319) 384–0740, or Jerome Thompson, State Historical Society of Iowa, 600 East Locust, Des Moines, IA 50319–0290, telephone (515) 281–4221, before November 10, 2008.
