In 1968 or earlier, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were recovered during installation of a septic tank with a backhoe at the Pine Point Resort, Pickerel Lake, Ainsworth, Langlade County, WI. The remains were recorded as ‘‘Historic Indian,’’ suggesting funerary objects may have been present, although none are found in the collection. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The Pine Point site was surveyed and recorded as 47Lg21 (LMA 21493W), in conjunction with the 1968 Wild Rivers Project Site Survey, directed by Dr. Robert J.

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. The Federally-recognized Lake Superior Ojibwa Indian tribes affiliated to this area are the Bad River Band of Lake Superior 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 the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Community of Wisconsin; and Sokaogon Chippewa Community, Wisconsin. Officials of the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, have determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), that the human remains described above represent the physical remains of two individuals of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, also have determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), that 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 Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, have determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), that 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 Bad River Band of Lake Superior 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 the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Community of Wisconsin; and E:\FR\FM\13MYN1.SGM 13MYN1
