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 January 2009, Pecos National Historical Park requested that the Review Committee recommend disposition of the 153 culturally unidentifiable human remains to the Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico, because the human remains were found within the tribe’s aboriginal and historical territory. The Review Committee considered the proposal at its May 23 – 24, 2009 meeting, and recommended disposition of the human remains to the Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico. A September 16, 2009, letter from the Designated Federal Officer, writing on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior, transmitted the authorization for the park to effect disposition of the physical remains of the culturally unidentifiable individuals to the Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico, contingent on the 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 should contact Kathy Billings, superintendent, Pecos National Historical Park, PO Box 418, Pecos, NM 87552, telephone (505) 757–7201, before December 14, 2009. Disposition of the human remains to the Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward.
