There have been several Notices of Inventory Completion (NICs) published in the Federal Register for human remains and associated funerary objects from these sites (63 FR 39293–39294, July 22, 1998; 70 FR 44686–44687, August 3, 2005; 70 FR 56483–56484, September 27, 2005; 71 FR 38413– 38415, July 6, 2006; and 76 FR 43718– 43719, July 21, 2011).
