Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 42 / Friday, March 2, 2012 / Notices DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR The area described contains approximately 38,016.60 acres located in Mohave County, Arizona. The BLM announced its intention to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement and initiated a public scoping process for the Proposed Project on November 20, 2009 (74 FR 60289). A supplemental notice of intent was issued on July 26, 2010 (75 FR 43551). The BLM is segregating the lands under the authority contained in 43 CFR 2091.3–1(e) and 43 CFR 2804.25(e) for a period of 2 years, subject to valid existing rights. This 2-year segregation period will commence on March 2, 2012. These public lands will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining law, but not the mineral leasing or material sales acts. This segregation will not affect valid existing rights. It has been determined that this segregation is necessary for the orderly administration of the public lands by maintaining the status quo while the BLM processes the ROW application for the Proposed Project. The segregation period will terminate and the lands will automatically reopen to appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, if one of the following events occurs: (1) Upon the issuance of a decision by the authorized officer granting, granting with modifications, or denying the application for a right-of-way; (2) upon publication of a Federal Register notice of termination of the segregation; or (3) without further administrative action at the end of the segregation provided for in this Federal Register notice initiating the segregation, whichever occurs first. Any segregation made under this authority would be effective for a period of 2 years. The lands to be segregated pursuant to the authority at 43 CFR 2091.3–1(e) and 2804.25(e) are identified in the legal description provided above. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Secs. 11 to 15, inclusive; Secs. 22 to 27, inclusive; Secs. 34 to 36, inclusive.

Abstract The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), requires museums to compile certain information (summaries, inventories, and notices) regarding Native American cultural items in their possession or control and provide that information to lineal descendants, likely interested Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, and the National NAGPRA Program (acting on behalf of PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12875 the Secretary of the Interior, housed in the National Park Service), to support consultation in the process of publishing notices that establish rights to repatriation. The summaries are general descriptions of the museum’s Native American collection, sent to all possibly interested tribes to disclose the collection, should the tribe desire to consult on items and present a claim. The inventories are item-by-item lists of the human remains and their funerary objects, upon which the museum consults with likely affiliated tribes to determine cultural affiliation, tribal land origination, or origination from aboriginal lands of Federal recognized tribes. Consultation and claims for items require information exchange between museums and tribes on the collections. Notices of Inventory Completion, published in the Federal Register indicate the museum decisions of rights of lineal descendants and tribes to receive human remains and funerary objects; Notices of Intent to Repatriate, published in the Federal Register, indicate the agreements of museums and tribes to transfer control to tribes of funerary objects, sacred objects and objects of cultural patrimony. Museums identify NAGPRA protected items in the collection through examination of museum records and from consultation with tribes. The National NAGPRA Program maintains the public databases of summary, inventory and notice information to support consultation. In the first 20 years of the administration of NAGPRA approximately 40,000 Native American human remains, of a possible collection of 180,000 individuals, have been listed in NAGPRA notices. Information collection of previous years is of lasting benefit, diminishing efforts in future years. II. Data OMB Number: 1024–0144.

Concession authorizations may be assigned, sold, transferred, or encumbered by the concessioner subject to prior written approval of the NPS. The NPS requires that certain information be submitted for review prior to the consummation of any sale, transfer, assignment, or encumbrance. The information requested is used to determine whether or not the proposed transaction will result in an adverse impact on the protection, conservation, or preservation of the resources of the unit of the National Park System; decreased services to the public; the lack of a reasonable opportunity for profit over the remaining term of the authorization; or rates in excess of approved rates to the public. In addition, pursuant to the regulations at 36 CFR Part 51, the value of rights for intangible assets such as the concession contract, right of preference in renewal, user days, or low fees, belongs to the Government. If any portion of the purchase price is attributable either directly or indirectly to such assets, the transaction may not be approved. The amount and type of information to be submitted varies with the type and complexity of the proposed transaction. Without such information, the NPS would be unable to determine whether approval of the proposed transaction would be adequate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act 
(NAGPRA), requires museums to compile certain information (summaries, 
inventories, and notices) regarding Native American cultural items in 
their possession or control and provide that information to lineal 
descendants, likely interested Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian 
organizations, and the National NAGPRA Program (acting on behalf of the 
Secretary of the Interior, housed in the National Park Service), to 
support consultation in the process of publishing notices that 
establish rights to repatriation. The summaries are general 
descriptions of the museum's Native American collection, sent to all 
possibly interested tribes to disclose the collection, should the tribe 
desire to consult on items and present a claim. The inventories are 
item-by-item lists of the human remains and their funerary objects, 
upon which the museum consults with likely affiliated tribes to 
determine cultural affiliation, tribal land origination, or origination 
from aboriginal lands of Federal recognized tribes. Consultation and 
claims for items require information exchange between museums and 
tribes on the collections. Notices of Inventory Completion, published 
in the Federal Register indicate the museum decisions of rights of 
lineal descendants and tribes to receive human remains and funerary 
objects; Notices of Intent to Repatriate, published in the Federal 
Register, indicate the agreements of museums and tribes to transfer 
control to tribes of funerary objects, sacred objects and objects of 
cultural patrimony. Museums identify NAGPRA protected items in the 
collection through examination of museum records and from consultation 
with tribes.
    The National NAGPRA Program maintains the public databases of 
summary, inventory and notice information to support consultation. In 
the first 20 years of the administration of NAGPRA approximately 40,000 
Native American human remains, of a possible collection of 180,000 
individuals, have been listed in NAGPRA notices. Information collection 
of previous years is of lasting benefit, diminishing efforts in future 
years.
