Notice; correction. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:38 Sep 13, 2010 Jkt 220001 Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains and associated funerary objects in the control of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Denver, CO. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Grand County, UT; possibly eastern Utah or western Colorado; Montezuma County, CO; and the American ‘‘Southwest.’’ 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 a Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register (75 FR 42770–42771, July 22, 2010) with the addition of 13 associated funerary objects. Since the publication of the notice, additional associated funerary objects likely removed from an unknown site in eastern Utah or western Colorado by H. Marie Wormington were found to be in the possession of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science collections. In the Federal Register of July 22, 2010, paragraph number 4, page 42770, is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: In the 1940s, human remains representing a minimum of four individuals were likely removed during excavations in eastern Utah or western Colorado by H. Marie Wormington, archeologist. In 1993, Wormington donated these remains to the museum (DMNS catalogue (and CUI numbers) A1985.1 (CUI 24), A1985.2 (CUI 25), A1985.3 (CUI 26), and A1985.4 (CUI 27)). The remains include one adult female, one child of indeterminate sex, and two adults of indeterminate sex. Most of these individuals are represented by fragmentary remains. Newspaper wrappings around the remains are dated to March 12, 1949. Wormingtoncoms field expeditions during this time focused on the area between Utah and Colorado. No known individuals were identified. The 13 associated funerary objects are unworked rocks associated with the adult female (DMNS catalogue number A1985.1). In the Federal Register of July 22, 2010, paragraph number 2, page 42771, is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: Officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science have determined that, PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55823 pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of 16 individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 17 objects described above are 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 Denver Museum of Nature & Science have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects and any present-day Indian tribe. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary objects should contact Dr. Chip ColwellChanthaphonh, Denver Museum of Nature & Science, 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver, CO 80205, telephone (303) 370– 6378, before October 14, 2010.

Science, Denver, CO; Correction

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

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

    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 in the control of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, 
Denver, CO. The human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed from Grand County, UT; possibly eastern Utah or western 
Colorado; Montezuma County, CO; and the American ``Southwest.''
    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 a Notice of Inventory Completion published in 
the Federal Register (75 FR 42770-42771, July 22, 2010) with the 
addition of 13 associated funerary objects. Since the publication of 
the notice, additional associated funerary objects likely removed from 
an unknown site in eastern Utah or western Colorado by H. Marie 
Wormington were found to be in the possession of the Denver Museum of 
Nature & Science collections.
    In the Federal Register of July 22, 2010, paragraph number 4, page 
42770, is corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    In the 1940s, human remains representing a minimum of four 
individuals were likely removed during excavations in eastern Utah or 
western Colorado by H. Marie Wormington, archeologist. In 1993, 
Wormington donated these remains to the museum (DMNS catalogue (and CUI 
numbers) A1985.1 (CUI 24), A1985.2 (CUI 25), A1985.3 (CUI 26), and 
A1985.4 (CUI 27)). The remains include one adult female, one child of 
indeterminate sex, and two adults of indeterminate sex. Most of these 
individuals are represented by fragmentary remains. Newspaper wrappings 
around the remains are dated to March 12, 1949. Wormingtoncoms field 
expeditions during this time focused on the area between Utah and 
Colorado. No known individuals were identified. The 13 associated 
funerary objects are unworked rocks associated with the adult female 
(DMNS catalogue number A1985.1).
    In the Federal Register of July 22, 2010, paragraph number 2, page 
42771, is corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    Officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science have determined 
that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described above 
represent the physical remains of 16 individuals of Native American 
ancestry. Officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science also have 
determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 17 objects 
described above are 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 Denver Museum of 
Nature & Science have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a 
relationship of shared group identity cannot be reasonably traced 
between the Native American human remains and associated funerary 
objects and any present-day Indian tribe.

objects should contact Dr. Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, Denver Museum of
