Notice of Inventory Completion: Thomas Burke Memorial Washington State Museum, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, 32183-32184 [E9-16020]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 128 / Tuesday, July 7, 2009 / Notices shell disk beads and bead fragments, 302 historic glass beads and bead fragments, 1 bone bead fragment, 1 possible stone bead fragment, and 5 pieces of incised bone that may be from a whistle or ear tube. Based on burial context and site characteristics, the human remains described above from Lake County are determined to be Native American in origin. Accompanying field reports indicate this site may be the Patwin village of Loli recorded by Kroeber (1932:263). The presence of historic items indicates that the burial from CA– LAK–153 dates to the Historic Period (after A.D. 1790). Linguistic evidence indicates that the Patwin (Southern Wintun) moved southward from the vicinity of the California–Oregon border into the Sacramento Valley sometime around A.D. 0, and then spread into the surrounding foothills sometime before the beginning of Phase 2 of the Late Period. The archeological assemblages from CA–LAK–152 and CA–LAK–153 also indicate an occupation that is consistent with the ethnographic Patwin. Based on geographical location and age of the associated funerary objects, the human remains and associated funerary objects are culturally affiliated with descendants of the Patwin. Descendants of the Patwin are members of the Cachil DeHe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community of the Colusa Rancheria, California; Cortina Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California; and Rumsey Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California. Officials of the Department of Anthropology Museum at the University of California, Davis have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of two individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Department of Anthropology Museum at the University of California, Davis also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the 419 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 Department of Anthropology Museum at the University of California, Davis 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 Cachil DeHe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community of the Colusa Rancheria, California; Cortina VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:45 Jul 06, 2009 Jkt 217001 Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California; and Rumsey Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California.

Repatriation of the human remains and associated funerary objects to the Cachil DeHe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community of the Colusa Rancheria, California; Cortina Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California; and Rumsey Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Department of Anthropology Museum at the University of California, Davis is responsible for notifying the Cachil DeHe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community of the Colusa Rancheria, California; Cortina Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California; and Rumsey Indian Rancheria of Wintun Indians of California that this notice has been published.

In 1921, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from south of Kent in King County, WA. The human remains were located under a log or root and removed by W.A. Steigleder while excavating for a road. The human remains were donated to the Burke Museum in 1921 (Burke Accn. #1879). No known individual was identified.

Ancestors of the Muckleshoot traditionally occupied the Green River and White River Basin Valleys. Kent is located along the Green River area. The Skopamish Band inhabited the upper Green River area. The Skopamish and other Native Americans from the Green River and White River Basin Valleys were assigned to move to the Nisqually Reservation as per the terms of the Medicine Creek Treaty of December 26, 1854; however, Governor Isaac Stevens recommended the Muckleshoot Reservation be established in 1856. In 1857, the Muckleshoot Reservation was formally approved.

The Native American human remains described above are all cremations with associated pottery vessels and artifacts that are characteristic of the culture group commonly known to archeologists as the Hohokam and date between A.D. 300 and A.D. 1300. The term ‘‘Hohokam’’ is used here for convenience due to its common use as a descriptor of this culture; it is unknown what name these people applied to themselves, and their present-day descendants do not use this term. The ‘‘Hohokam’’ were a sedentary agricultural group that developed out of the local Archaic population. Their settlement pattern was predominantly of the rancheria type, with pithouse or house-in-pit architecture. Pit or urn cremations were the predominant burial practice prior to A.D. 1100. Extended supine inhumations then became more prevalent, completely replacing cremations by A.D. 1300. There was a pronounced, though far from complete, decline in population after about A.D. 1350. The Ak Chin Indian Community of the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Reservation, Arizona; Gila River Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation, Arizona; Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of the Salt River Reservation; and the Tohono O’odham Nation of Arizona comprise one cultural group known as the O’odham. The Ak Chin Indian Community of the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Reservation, Arizona consists primarily of Akimel and Tohono O’odham, with a few families of Hia-Ced O’odham.
