We started this process with a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register (64 FR 25899, May. 13, 1999) and a revised Notice of Intent in the Federal Register (71 FR 42116, July 25, 2006). We announced the availability of the draft CCP and EA, and requested comments in a notice of availability in the Federal Register (72 FR 54921, Sept. 27, 2007). Togiak Refuge is located 400 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska. The Refuge is bordered to the south by Bristol Bay, to the west by Kuskokwim Bay, to the north by Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge and to the east by Wood-Tikchik State Park. Of the 4.7 million acres within the boundary, 4.2 million acres is under management by the Service, including the 2.3 million-acre Togiak Wilderness. Three major watersheds, the Kanketok, Goodnews, and Togiak rivers, provide abundant fish habitat within the Refuge, where more than 1 million salmon come to spawn each year. The Refuge also includes coastal areas varying from sandy beaches to steep rocky cliffs, including rare protected haul outs for Pacific Walrus. We announce our decision and the availability of the FONSI for the revised CCP for the Togiak Refuge in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:27 Sep 23, 2009 Jkt 217001 (NEPA) (40 CFR 1506.6(b)) requirements. We completed a thorough analysis of impacts on the human environment in the EA that accompanied the draft revised CCP. The CCP will guide us in managing and administering the Togiak Refuge for the next 15 years. The revised CCP is Alternative 1, the preferred alternative in the draft CCP, developed in response to public scoping comments. Background The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980 (94 Stat. 2371; ANILCA) and the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee) require us to develop a CCP for each Alaska refuge. The purpose for developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our policies. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with national policy and ANILCA. ANILCA requires us to designate areas according to their respective resources and values and to specify programs and uses within the areas designated. To meet this requirement, the Alaska Region established management categories for refuges including Wilderness, Minimal, Moderate, Intensive, and Wild River management. In the past, additional categories, including Cooperative Management were also included but are no longer used. For each management category we identified appropriate activities, public uses, commercial uses, and facilities. This revision reclassifies Cooperative Management lands as Minimal Management. Only Minimal and Wilderness management categories are applied to Togiak Refuge. Draft CCP Alternatives The Draft Plan identified one significant planning issue, the effect of management on activities and uses within the Togiak Refuge. Two alternatives were considered in the environmental assessment. Alternative 1, the Proposed Action, includes implementation of updated management guidelines, converting lands in Cooperative Management into Minimal Management, and adds Refuge goals and objectives. Alternative 2, Current Management, would continue to implement current management as outlined in the 1987 Comprehensive Plan, including the use of the PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Cooperative Management category. The Refuge would not have a clearly stated vision statement, goals and objectives to guide management. Comments on the Draft CCP Comments on the draft CCP/EA for Togiak Refuge were solicited by the Service from October 3, 2007, through January 18, 2008. During the public review and comment period the Service held public meetings in Anchorage, Dillingham, Quinhagak, Goodnews Bay, and Togiak, Alaska. The planning team reviewed, analyzed, and summarized all comments received at the public meetings and in writing. Selected Alternative—Alternative 1 Two alternatives were considered in the environmental assessment. Alternative 1, the Proposed Action, encompasses policy development, changes, and clarifications made in the years since the implementation of the original Comprehensive Plan in 1987. It also converts lands in Cooperative Management into Minimal Management, and adds a Refuge vision statement, goals and objectives. Dated: September 18, 2009.

Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: 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 under the control of The Colorado College, Colorado Springs, CO. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Canyon de Chelly, Apache County, AZ. 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 Native American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals and associated funerary objects in a Notice of Inventory Completion previously published in the Federal Register (72 FR 19920, April 14, 2004), and replaces it in its entirety with the following: A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by The Colorado College professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Navajo Nation, Arizona, New Mexico & Utah; Ohkay Owingeh, New Mexico (formerly the Pueblo of San Juan); Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico; Pueblo of Cochiti, New Mexico; Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico; Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico; Pueblo of Laguna, New Mexico; Pueblo of Nambe, New Mexico; Pueblo of Picuris, New Mexico; Pueblo of Pojoaque, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Felipe, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Ildefonso, New Mexico; Pueblo of Sandia, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Clara, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santo Domingo, New Mexico; Pueblo of Taos, New Mexico; Pueblo of Tesuque, New Mexico; Pueblo of Zia, New Mexico; Ysleta del Sur Pueblo of Texas; and Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico. In 1897–1898, human remains representing 11 individuals were removed from a cliff ruin in Chinlee Canon (a.k.a. Canyon de Chelly), PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48779 Apache County, AZ, under the auspices of the C.B. Lang Expedition of 1897– 1898. Prior to 1900, General William Jackson Palmer acquired what became known as the Lang-Bixby Collection, which he subsequently transferred to The Colorado College. After the museum was disbanded, the human remains were transferred to the College’s Anthropology Department. The associated funerary objects that were not in direct contact with the human remains were transferred to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (CSFAC) (formerly the Taylor Museum). A permanent loan agreement with the CSFAC is dated 1986. The six associated funerary objects are a cotton robe or blanket, which may also include feathers, that encases the human remains of a naturally mummified infant; two fragments of cotton cloth believed to have been a part of the robe or blanket; a yucca basket; a piece of bark; and one lot of cotton fabric identified at the time of collection as resembling a lamp wick; all of the funerary objects are associated with the human remains of a naturally mummified infant. A physical anthropological assessment of the human remains resulted in a determination that the human remains are ancestral Puebloan based on the type of cranial deformation. This determination is supported by the funerary objects associated with one of the individuals, as well as the provenience. In 1897–1898, human remains representing two individuals were removed from Chinlee Canon (a.k.a. Canyon de Chelly), Apache County, AZ, under the auspices of the C.B. Lang Expedition of 1897–1898. Prior to 1900, General William Jackson Palmer acquired what became known as the Lang-Bixby Collection, which he subsequently transferred to The Colorado College. After the museum was disbanded, the human remains were transferred to the College’s Anthropology Department. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Canyon de Chelly, which is also known as Chinlee Canon, was a site of ancestral Puebloan occupation. Currently, the site is within the Navajo Indian Reservation. The Colorado College has determined that the lands from which the human remains and associated funerary objects were collected were not Federal lands at the time of collection. A relationship of shared group identity can reasonably be traced between ancestral Puebloan and modern Puebloan peoples based on oral E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1
