Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 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 an associated funerary object in the possession of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Portland, OR. The human remains were removed from an area in the vicinity of The Dalles, OR. 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 object. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains and associated funerary object was made by Oregon Museum of Science and Industry professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon. In the 1930s or early 1940s, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an area VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:48 Aug 24, 2010 Jkt 220001 in the vicinity of the city of The Dalles, Wasco County, OR, by Alonzo Hancock. Mr. Hancock removed the remains after they had been excavated during construction work on the south side of a roadcut. The exact location of the road is unclear from museum records. Mr. Hancock donated the human remains to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry in 1946. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remains have been identified as Native American based on observable dental traits and museum documentation that refers to the human remains as ‘‘Chinook.’’ In the 1930s, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an area in the vicinity of the city of The Dalles, Wasco County, OR, by an unknown individual. The exact location of the area is unclear from museum records. The human remains were donated to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry by an unknown individual sometime between the 1940s and the 1970s. No known individual was identified. The one associated funerary object is a copper earring. The human remains have been identified as Native American based on observable dental traits and the type of associated funerary object. The Dalles, OR, is within the traditional territory of the present-day Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon, which is composed of Wasco, Warm Springs, and Paiute bands and tribes. The Columbia River-based Wasco were the easternmost group of Chinookan-speaking Indians. The Sahaptin-speaking Warm Springs bands lived along the Columbia’s tributaries. The Paiutes speak a Shoshonean dialect and traditionally lived in southeastern Oregon. The Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon peoples also traditionally shared this area with the fourteen Sahaptin-, Salish-, and Chinookan-speaking tribes and bands of the present-day Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation, Washington. The traditional territory of the Yakama included the Washington side of the Columbia River between the eastern slopes of the Cascade Range and the lower Yakima River watershed. Officials of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of two individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry also have determined that, pursuant to 25 PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52369 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described above is 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 Oregon Museum of Science and Industry 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 object and the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Indian Nation, Washington. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary object should contact Lori Erickson, Curator, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, 1945 SE Water Ave., Portland, OR 97214, telephone (503) 797–4582, before September 24, 2010. Repatriation of the human remains and associated funerary object to the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation, Washington, may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward.

At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were most likely removed from Madeline Island, Ashland County, WI, possibly by Al Galazen. No known individual was identified. The one associated funerary object is a soil matrix, which includes within it a textile fragment, trade beads, nail fragments, and metal fragments. In 2008, staff at the Madeline Island Museum located a box containing what appeared to be a soil matrix with burial related objects, including possible human remains. The box was transferred to the Wisconsin Historical Society, where professional staff examined the contents and positively identified the presence of human remains, representing a minimum of one individual. The textile fragment, beads, nails, and metal fragments were enveloped inside the soil matrix. Provenience information is limited to an inscription on the outside of the box, ‘‘Madeline Island Al Galazen.’’ Al Galazen (1903–1992) was a well-known collector from Madeline Island who donated most of his personal collection of archeological materials to the Madeline Island Museum. The individual is believed to be of Native VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:48 Aug 24, 2010 Jkt 220001 American ancestry, based on the presence of trade beads within the soil matrix and the known collecting practices of the presumed donor, Al Galazen. The contents of the soil matrix date to the Historic Period. Consultation with the Great Lakes Ojibwe Cultural Protection and Repatriation Alliance and the Wisconsin Inter-tribal Repatriation Committee indicated that the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin, and Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin, are known to have inhabited the region during the Historic Period. Further consultation resulted in the identification of the Red Cliff and Bad River Bands as being direct descendents of Chief Buffalo and the occupants of the village on Madeline Island (Treaty of La Pointe, 1854). Finally, the Ojibwe bands consider Madeline Island to be sacred.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 an associated funerary 
object in the possession of the Wisconsin Historical Society (aka State 
Historical Society of Wisconsin), Museum Division, Madison, WI. The 
human remains and associated funerary

object are assumed to have been removed from Madeline Island, Ashland 
County, WI.

    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 object. The National 
Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was done by Wisconsin 
Historical Society professional staff in consultation with the Great 
Lakes Ojibwe Cultural Protection and Repatriation Alliance, a non-
federally recognized Indian group, and the Wisconsin Inter-tribal 
Repatriation Committee, a non-federally recognized Indian group with 
Federally-recognized member Indian tribes (Bad River Band of the Lake 
Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, 
Wisconsin; Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians 
of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; and the Sokaogon 
Chippewa Community, Wisconsin).
    At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one 
individual were most likely removed from Madeline Island, Ashland 
County, WI, possibly by Al Galazen. No known individual was identified. 
The one associated funerary object is a soil matrix, which includes 
within it a textile fragment, trade beads, nail fragments, and metal 
fragments.
    In 2008, staff at the Madeline Island Museum located a box 
containing what appeared to be a soil matrix with burial related 
objects, including possible human remains. The box was transferred to 
the Wisconsin Historical Society, where professional staff examined the 
contents and positively identified the presence of human remains, 
representing a minimum of one individual. The textile fragment, beads, 
nails, and metal fragments were enveloped inside the soil matrix. 
Provenience information is limited to an inscription on the outside of 
the box, ``Madeline Island Al Galazen.'' Al Galazen (1903-1992) was a 
well-known collector from Madeline Island who donated most of his 
personal collection of archeological materials to the Madeline Island 
Museum. The individual is believed to be of Native American ancestry, 
based on the presence of trade beads within the soil matrix and the 
known collecting practices of the presumed donor, Al Galazen. The 
contents of the soil matrix date to the Historic Period.
    Consultation with the Great Lakes Ojibwe Cultural Protection and 
Repatriation Alliance and the Wisconsin Inter-tribal Repatriation 
Committee indicated that the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe 
of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin, and Red 
Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin, are known to 
have inhabited the region during the Historic Period. Further 
consultation resulted in the identification of the Red Cliff and Bad 
River Bands as being direct descendents of Chief Buffalo and the 
occupants of the village on Madeline Island (Treaty of La Pointe, 
1854). Finally, the Ojibwe bands consider Madeline Island to be sacred.
    Officials of the Wisconsin Historical Society, Museum Division, 
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 the Wisconsin Historical 
Society, Museum Division, also have determined that, pursuant to 25 
U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described above is 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 Wisconsin Historical Society, Museum Division, 
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 human remains and associated funerary object and the Bad 
River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad 
River Reservation, Wisconsin, and Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior 
Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Jennifer 
L. Kolb, Wisconsin Historical Museum, 30 N. Carroll St., Madison, WI 
53703, telephone (608) 261-2461, before September 24, 2010. 
Repatriation of the human remains and associated funerary object to the 
Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the 
Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin, and Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior 
Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin, may proceed after that date if no 
additional claimants come forward.
    The Wisconsin Historical Society, Museum Division, is responsible 
for notifying the Federally-recognized member Indian tribes of the 
Wisconsin Inter-tribal Repatriation Committee: Bad River Band of the 
Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, 
Wisconsin; Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians 
of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; and the Sokaogon 
Chippewa Community, Wisconsin; and the Great Lakes Ojibwe Cultural 
Protection and Repatriation Alliance, a non-federally recognized Indian 
group, that this notice has been published.
