The human remains were removed from Port Clarence, Nome County, AK.

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. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by New York University College of Dentistry professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Native Village of Brevig Mission and Native Village of Teller. At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an unidentified site at Port Clarence, Nome County, AK, by an unknown individual. By 1924, the human remains were donated to the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation by Mrs. George Heye. In 1956, the human remains were transferred to Dr. Theodore Kazamiroff, New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD #334). No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Museum of the American Indian records list the origin of the human remains as Port Clarence, AK, which is located on the Seward Peninsula. The morphology of the human remains is consistent with Native American ancestry. In the late 19th century, Edward William Nelson, Smithsonian Institution naturalist, observed burials in the region. The human remains were placed in wooden boxes that were elevated onto poles. The boxes or poles were marked with totems to which tools or other necessary items were attached. The boxes were exposed and highly visible to collectors. Based on the preservation observed in excavations on the Seward Peninsula, it is likely that the human remains are associated with the Western Thule tradition, and postdate A.D. 1000. In the Western Thule tradition, the people of the Seward Peninsula were highly localized, with differences in their lifeways based on the particular resources available in their territory. Localization may have occurred alongside the development of geopolitical boundaries. Port Clarence was focused on whaling, and was part of the Sinrarmiut or Port Clarence territory of Inupiaq speakers at the time of European contact. Today, the descendants of the people of Port Clarence are represented by the Native Villages of Brevig Mission and Teller. Both communities made seasonal use of Port Clarence in the 20th century, and tribal representatives have identified PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52021 Port Clarence as part of their ancestral territory. Officials of New York University College of Dentistry have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of one individual of Native American ancestry. Officials of New York University College of Dentistry also 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 the Native Village of Brevig Mission and Native Village of Teller. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. Louis Terracio, New York University College of Dentistry, 345 East 24th St., New York, NY 10010, telephone (212) 998–9917, before September 23, 2010. Repatriation of the human remains to the Native Village of Brevig Mission and Native Village of Teller may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The New York University College of Dentistry is responsible for notifying the Native Village of Brevig Mission and Native Village of Teller that this notice has been published.

At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an unknown location. The human remains were acquired by Dr. Joseph Jones of Louisiana at an unknown date. In 1906, the widow of Dr. Jones sold his collection to the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation. In 1956, the Museum of the American Indian transferred the human remains to Dr. Theodore Kazamiroff, New York University College of Dentistry. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Museum records indicate that the human remains are from an unknown location, and are the human remains of a Seminole individual whose last name was Tigertail. This name is a known surname among the Seminole. The identification of a surname and tribal affiliation indicates that the human remains date to post-Contact times. Although a surname is listed for the individual, lineal descendants could not be identified because the full name of the individual could not be determined. Despite the inability to determine lineal descendants, no information from the museum records, osteological assessment, or consultation conflicts with the identification of the human remains as ‘‘Seminole.’’ During consultations, tribal representatives supported the identification of the human remains as Seminole.

On an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an island on the Columbia River, 10 miles south of Umatilla, near or in Umatilla County, OR. In 1896, the Field Museum of Natural History purchased these human remains from Joseph V. Tallman of Pendleton, OR (Field Museum of Natural History accession number 275, catalog number 40662). No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1901, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals were removed from a location along the banks of the Columbia River, near Umatilla, near or in Umatilla County, OR, by Dr. Merton Miller for the Field Museum of Natural History (Field Museum of Natural History accession number 781, catalog number 40997). No known individual was identified. The five associated funerary objects are one chert scraper, one stone tool or blade, and three bone awls. The human remains have been identified as Native American, based on the specific cultural and geographic attribution in Field Museum of Natural History records. Scholarly publications and consultation information provided by the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Washington; Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, Oregon; Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon; Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation, Washington; Nez Perce Tribe, Idaho; and the Wanapum Band, a non-federally recognized Indian group, indicate that the areas where the human remains and associated funerary objects were found are located within the traditional lands of the Umatilla, Cayuse, and the Walla Walla. These groups have been located there since the late Prehistoric Period, and each are represented today by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Officials of the Field Museum of Natural History have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of three individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Field Museum of Natural History also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the five objects described above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains E:\FR\FM\24AUN1.SGM 24AUN1
