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.

In 1975, human remains representing a minimum of one individual (‘‘Burial 2’’) were removed from the Marina site (47As24), La Pointe Township, Madeline Island, Ashland County, WI, by crews from Beloit College. The excavation was directed by Robert J. Salzer under the terms of an agreement between Beloit College and the Interagency Archeological Services branch of the National Park Service. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1977, human remains representing a minimum of one individual (‘‘Burial 12’’) were removed from the Marina site (47As24), La Pointe Township, Madeline Island, Ashland County, WI, by workers installing a sewer line. No known individual was identified. The nine associated funerary objects are copper bracelets. The Marina site is a multi-component habitation and mortuary site that represents at least 200 years of human activity at La Pointe, WI, including Indian villages and cemeteries as well as Catholic missions. It was a focal point of the western Great Lakes fur trade. Near the end of the fur trade era, Frederick Baraga established a cemetery for his Catholic mission’s Indian and mixed-blood congregation. Archeological excavations were PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28075 conducted in 1975 to salvage information that was under threat of destruction from planned construction of a sewer main. All human remains excavated from the site, with the exception of those reported here, were transferred in 1976 from Beloit College to the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin. Burial 2 was located in the central part of the Marina site near several other burials that likely date to circa 1715– 1770. Burial 12 was located in close proximity to the Baraga Mission cemetery established in the 1830s and most likely dates to the mission era or later (post 1835). Both individuals are Native American based on the archeological context. La Pointe is a traditional home of the Lake Superior Ojibwa, although other tribes lived there periodically.

    In 1975, human remains representing a minimum of one individual

Township, Madeline Island, Ashland County, WI, by crews from Beloit

    In 1977, human remains representing a minimum of one individual 
(``Burial 12'') were removed from the Marina site (47As24), La Pointe 
Township, Madeline Island, Ashland County, WI, by workers installing a 
sewer line. No known individual was identified. The nine associated 
funerary objects are copper bracelets.
    The Marina site is a multi-component habitation and mortuary site 
that represents at least 200 years of human activity at La Pointe, WI, 
including Indian villages and cemeteries as well as Catholic missions. 
It was a focal point of the western Great Lakes fur trade. Near the end 
of the fur trade era, Frederick Baraga established a cemetery for his 
Catholic mission's Indian and mixed-blood congregation. Archeological 
excavations were conducted in 1975 to salvage information that was 
under threat of destruction from planned construction of a sewer main. 
All human remains excavated from the site, with the exception of those 
reported here, were transferred in 1976 from Beloit College to the Red 
Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin.
    Burial 2 was located in the central part of the Marina site near 
several other burials that likely date to circa 1715-1770. Burial 12 
was located in close proximity to the Baraga Mission cemetery 
established in the 1830s and most likely dates to the mission era or

described above represent the physical remains of two individuals of 
Native American ancestry. Officials of the Logan Museum of

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 Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, 
have determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), that there is a
