Notice of Public Meeting, Eastern Washington Resource Advisory Council Meeting, 9429 [2010-4224]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 40 / Tuesday, March 2, 2010 / Notices WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES masks are also considered to be objects of cultural patrimony that have ongoing historical, traditional, and cultural significance to the group and could not have been alienated by a single individual. False face masks and corn husk face masks continue to play an important, ongoing role in the spiritual and religious identity of contemporary Haudenosaunee people. These sacred objects and objects of cultural patrimony are believed to be culturally affiliated to the Onondaga Nation of New York, on behalf of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy (also known as the Iroquois Confederacy or Six Nations, including the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, and Tuscarora Nations, which are represented by the following Federallyrecognized tribes: Cayuga Nation of New York; Oneida Nation of New York; Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin; Onondaga Nation of New York; Seneca Nation of New York; Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma; Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, New York; Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New York; and Tuscarora Nation of New York). The specific cultural attribution of these objects in museum records indicates an affiliation to the Haudenosaunee people. New York and the Six Nations Reserve in Canada lie within the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee people. Consultation evidence and other research supports a finding that the stylistic characteristics of the objects reported here are consistent with traditional Haudenosaunee forms. Thus, the cultural items’ cultural affiliation with the Haudenosaunee Confederacy is established through anthropological, geographical, and historical information; museum records; consultation evidence; and expert opinion. Officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(C), the 10 cultural items described above are specific ceremonial objects needed by traditional Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by their present-day adherents. Officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(D), the 10 cultural items described above have ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, rather than property owned by an individual. Lastly, officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:07 Mar 01, 2010 Jkt 220001 a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the sacred objects/objects of cultural patrimony and the Cayuga Nation of New York; Oneida Nation of New York; Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin; Onondaga Nation of New York; Seneca Nation of New York; Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma; Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, New York; Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New York; and Tuscarora Nation of New York. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the sacred objects/objects of cultural patrimony should contact Patricia Capone, Repatriation Coordinator, Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, 11 Divinity Ave., Cambridge, MA 02138, telephone (617) 496–3702, before April 1, 2010. Repatriation of the sacred objects/ objects of cultural patrimony to the Cayuga Nation of New York; Oneida Nation of New York; Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin; Onondaga Nation of New York; Seneca Nation of New York; Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma; Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, New York; Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New York; and Tuscarora Nation of New York, may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Peabody Museum is responsible for notifying the Cayuga Nation of New York; Oneida Nation of New York; Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin; Onondaga Nation of New York; Seneca Nation of New York; Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma; Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, New York; Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New York; and Tuscarora Nation of New York, that this notice has been published.
