The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the Superintendent, Natchez Trace Parkway, Tupelo, MS. In 1951, unassociated funerary objects were removed from the Mangum site, Claiborne County, MS, during authorized National Park Service survey and excavation projects. The whereabouts of the human remains is unknown. The 34 unassociated funerary objects are 6 ceramic vessel fragments, 1 ceramic jar, 4 projectile points, 6 shell ornaments, 2 shells, 1 stone tool, 1 stone artifact, 1 polished stone, 2 pieces of petrified wood, 2 bone artifacts, 1 worked antler, 2 discoidals, 3 cupreous metal fragments and 2 soil/shell samples. The Mangum site is a large hilltop cemetery located in Claiborne County, MS. Objects recovered from the burials indicate that the site was in use during the Mississippian period (A.D. 1000–1650). In 1540, the De Soto expedition likely encountered the Taensa people in the vicinity of the Mangum site. In 1682, the de La Salle expedition documented the Taensa and Tunica in the same area. In 1706, the Taensa were driven from the area, migrating first to Bayogula, and then to Mobile, where they may have settled with the Choctaw. In 1764, the Taensa again moved, first to the Red River in south Louisiana, and finally to the Bayou Boeuf area where they lived with the Chitimacha. Representatives of the Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana have identified similarities between the burial practices observed at the Mangum site and those of the Chitimacha. Historical documentation also indicates that the Tunica buried individuals in hilltop cemeteries in open country, matching the burial practice observed on the Mangum site. Historical documentation indicates that some Taensa may have married into the Alabama tribe, the descendants of whom now constitute the AlabamaCoushatta Tribes of Texas and the Alabama-Quassarte Tribal Town, Oklahoma. Officials of Natchez Trace Parkway have determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), that the 34 cultural items 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 and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. Officials of Natchez Trace Parkway also have determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), that there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:07 Jan 05, 2011 Jkt 223001 reasonably traced between the unassociated funerary objects and the Alabama-Coushatta Tribes of Texas; Alabama-Quassarte Tribal Town, Oklahoma; Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana; Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; Jena Band of Choctaw Indians, Louisiana; Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, Mississippi; and Tunica-Biloxi Indian Tribe of Louisiana. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the unassociated funerary objects should contact Cameron H. Sholly, Superintendent, Natchez Trace Parkway, 2680 Natchez Trace Parkway, Tupelo, MS 38803, telephone (662) 680– 4005, before February 7, 2011.

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 possession of the U.S. Department of the Interior, 
National Park Service, Natchez Trace Parkway, Tupelo, MS. The human 
remains and cultural items were removed from Claiborne County, MS.
    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 
Superintendent, Natchez Trace Parkway, Tupelo, MS.
    This notice corrects the total number and types of associated 
funerary objects for a Notice of Inventory Completion published in the 
Federal Register (67 FR 910-911, January 8, 2002). Since publication an 
additional 148 associated funerary objects have been discovered. 
Therefore, in the Federal Register, page 910, paragraph number 4 is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    In 1951 and 1963, human remains representing 124 individuals were 
recovered from the Mangum site during authorized National Park Service 
survey and excavation projects. No known individuals were identified. 
There are no funerary objects associated with the one individual 
recovered in 1951. The 123 individuals recovered in 1963 are associated 
with 182 funerary objects: 86 ceramic vessel fragments, 1 ceramic jar, 
1 tobacco pipe, 1 frog effigy, 9 projectile points, 4 shell ornaments, 
2 shells, 37 shell beads, 1 shell pendant, 1 shell dipper, 4 stone 
tools, 2 stone artifacts, 6 flakes, 2 pieces of shatter, 2 chisels, 3 
polished stones, 8 celts, 2 faunal bones, 9 cupreous metal fragments 
and 1 cupreous metal plate.
    In the Federal Register, page 910, paragraph number 6 is corrected 
by substituting the following paragraph:
    Officials of the Natchez Trace Parkway have determined, pursuant to

[[Page 796]]

25 U.S.C. 3001(9), that the human remains described above represent the 
physical remains of 124 individuals of Native American ancestry. 
Officials of the Natchez Trace Parkway also have determined that, 
pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 182 cultural items 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 Natchez Trace Parkway 
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 
objects and the Alabama-Coushatta Tribes of Texas; Alabama-Quassarte 
Tribal Town, Oklahoma; Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana; Choctaw Nation of 
Oklahoma; Jena Band of Choctaw Indians, Louisiana; Mississippi Band of 
Choctaw Indians, Mississippi; and Tunica-Biloxi Indian Tribe of

    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary 
objects should contact Cameron H. Sholly, Superintendent, Natchez Trace 
Parkway, 2680 Natchez Trace Parkway, Tupelo, MS 38803, telephone (662)
