History and Description of the Remains

    In 1976, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals

House site, in San Diego, CA. The site is variously referred to as the

25 associated funerary objects consist of shell, stone, charcoal, and

Determinations Made by the University of California, San Diego

    Officials of the University of California, San Diego have 
determined that:
     The calibrated dates for the human remains are believed to 
fall between 8,977 and 9,603 years B.P.
     The human remains are Native American.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and any present-day Indian tribe.
     Evidence indicates that the land from which the Native 
American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of the 
Diegueno (Kumeyaay) Tribe. As noted in the Schedule of Indian Land 
Cessions, on or about January 7, 1852, the Diegueno (Kumeyaay) ceded to 
the United States an area that includes present-day San Diego County.
     The present-day descendants of the Diegueno (Kumeyaay) are 
The Tribes.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of two

[[Page 75909]]

individuals of Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the approximately 25 
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.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), and based upon request 
from the Kumeyaay Cultural Repatriation Committee, on behalf of The 
Tribes, disposition of the human remains is to the La Posta Band of 
Diegueno Mission Indians of the La Posta Indian Reservation, 
California.

culturally affiliated with the human remains or any other Indian tribe 
that believes it satisfies the criteria in 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1) should

Planning, University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive 
0057, La Jolla, CA 92093-0057, telephone (858) 534-6820,
