Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the American 
Museum of Natural History professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, Massachusetts.

History and Description of the Remains

    Sometime prior to 1896, human remains representing a minimum of one 
individual were collected by R.W. Sears from what is identified in 
museum records as an ``Indian grave'' site in West Brewster, Cape Cod, 
Barnstable County, MA. The human remains were subsequently purchased by 
the American Museum of Natural History from the Giffort Brothers in 
1896. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present.
    The individual has been identified as Native American based on 
cranial and dental morphology, as well as the recorded association of 
the remains with a Native American grave site. A bioarcheologist who 
examined the human remains estimated them to be of a recent age. 
Consultation information provided by the tribe, as well as 
archeological and historical sources, indicate that the geographic 
location of the ``Indian grave'' site is consistent with the 
traditional and post-contact territory of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, 
Massachusetts.

that:

above represent the physical remains of one individual of Native 
American ancestry.
     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 the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, Massachusetts.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Nell 
Murphy, Director of Cultural Resources, American Museum of Natural 
History, Central Park West at 79th Street, New York, NY 10024-5192, 
telephone (212) 769-5837, before August 22, 2011. Repatriation of the

proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward.
    The American Museum of Natural History is responsible for notifying 
the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, Massachusetts, that this notice has been 
published.
