On unknown dates, human remains representing a minimum of six individuals were removed from unknown locations by unknown individuals. No known individuals were identified. The three associated funerary objects are two ceramic sherds and a non-human bone (catalog numbers 99101a and 99134). The human remains are represented by catalog numbers: 99101–1; 99101–2; 99134a; 99134b; 99134c; and 99134d. The human remains are Native American based on associated archeological evidence, such as the funerary objects. Officials of the University of Colorado Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described above represent the physical remains of 157 individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the University of Colorado Museum also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the nine 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 University of Colorado Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared group identity cannot reasonably be traced between the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects and any present-day Indian tribe. The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee (Review Committee) is responsible for recommending specific actions for the disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains. In October 2009, the University of Colorado Museum requested that the Review Committee recommend disposition of 235 culturally unidentifiable individuals and associated funerary objects to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah. The Comanche Nation, Oklahoma; Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma; Susanville Indian Rancheria, California; and YavapaiApache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona, wrote letters or signed the disposition agreement in support of the tribes requesting disposition. None of the Indian tribes consulted objected to the determination of the ‘‘culturally unidentifiable’’ status by the University PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57291 of Colorado Museum and the disposition to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah. The Review Committee considered the proposal at its October 30–31, 2009, meeting and recommended disposition of the 235 culturally unidentifiable individuals and associated funerary objects to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah. The Secretary of the Interior independently reviewed the recommendation. A May 11, 2010, letter from the Designated Federal Officer, writing on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior, transmitted the authorization for the University of Colorado Museum to effect disposition of the physical remains of 157 of the 235 culturally unidentifiable individuals to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, contingent on the publication of a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register. This notice fulfills that requirement. In the same letter the Secretary also recommended the transfer of the associated funerary objects to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, to the extent allowed by Federal, state, or local law. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary objects should contact Steve Lekson, Curator of Anthropology, University of Colorado Museum, in care of Jan Bernstein, NAGPRA Consultant, Bernstein & Associates, 1041 Lafayette St., Denver, CO 80218, telephone (303) 894–0648, before October 20, 2010. Disposition of the human remains and associated funerary objects to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward.

    The human remains are Native American based on the physical 
association with an individual described above (catalog number 07704a). 
The individual (catalog number 07704a) is determined to be Native 
American based on osteological evidence obtained through non-
destructive examination by a physical anthropologist.
    On unknown dates, human remains representing a minimum of six 
individuals were removed from unknown locations by unknown individuals. 
No known individuals were identified. The three associated funerary 
objects are two ceramic sherds and a non-human bone (catalog numbers 
99101a and 99134).

    Officials of the University of Colorado Museum have determined 
that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described above 
represent the physical remains of 157 individuals of Native American 
ancestry. Officials of the University of Colorado Museum also have 
determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the nine 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 University of 
Colorado Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a 
relationship of shared group identity cannot reasonably be traced 
between the Native American human remains and associated funerary 
objects and any present-day Indian tribe.
    The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review 
Committee (Review Committee) is responsible for recommending specific 
actions for the disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains. 
In October 2009, the University of Colorado Museum requested that the 
Review Committee recommend disposition of 235 culturally unidentifiable 
individuals and associated funerary objects to the Pueblo of Isleta, 
New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, 
Colorado, New Mexico & Utah. The Comanche Nation, Oklahoma; Hopi Tribe 
of Arizona; Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma; Susanville Indian Rancheria, 
California; and Yavapai-Apache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian 
Reservation, Arizona, wrote letters or signed the disposition agreement 
in support of the tribes requesting disposition. None of the Indian 
tribes consulted objected to the determination of the ``culturally 
unidentifiable'' status by the University of Colorado Museum and the 
disposition to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and the Ute Mountain 
Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah.
    The Review Committee considered the proposal at its October 30-31, 
2009, meeting and recommended disposition of the 235 culturally 
unidentifiable individuals and associated funerary objects to the 
Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute 
Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah. The Secretary of the 
Interior independently reviewed the recommendation. A May 11, 2010, 
letter from the Designated Federal Officer, writing on behalf of the 
Secretary of the Interior, transmitted the authorization for the 
University of Colorado Museum to effect disposition of the physical 
remains of 157 of the 235 culturally unidentifiable individuals to the 
Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute 
Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, contingent on the 
publication of a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal 
Register. This notice fulfills that requirement. In the same letter the 
Secretary also recommended the transfer of the associated funerary 
objects to the Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of 
the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, to the 
extent allowed by Federal, state, or local law.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary 
objects should contact Steve Lekson, Curator of Anthropology, 
University of Colorado Museum, in care of Jan Bernstein, NAGPRA 
Consultant, Bernstein & Associates, 1041 Lafayette St., Denver, CO 
80218, telephone (303) 894-0648, before October 20, 2010. Disposition 
of the human remains and associated funerary objects to the Pueblo of 
Isleta, New Mexico, and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain 
Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, may proceed after that date 
if no additional claimants come forward.
