History and Description of the Remains Prior to 1940, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unknown location near the river between Menominee, MI, and Marinette, WI. The human remains were found during a fishing excursion by the uncle of Lyle Perkins, a resident of Three Oaks, MI, and remained in the possession of the Perkins family until the remains were donated to The Region of Three Oaks Museum approximately eight years ago. A handwritten note from the donor’s family states that the remains were analyzed by the Smithsonian Institute, but no other documentation supports this assertion. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:10 Apr 18, 2012 Jkt 226001 The human remains consist of one complete human skull, possibly female. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Due to the location of the recovery of the remains, it is believed the remains are Native American and are affiliated to the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. Consultation with the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin supported this affiliation. Determinations Made by The Region of Three Oaks Museum Officials of The Region of Three Oaks Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), human remains described in this notice 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 Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin.

Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Museum of Anthropology at Washington State University professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, Washington, and the Spokane Tribe of the Spokane Reservation, Washington. History and Description of the Remains In 1979, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unknown location in Stevens County, WA. The remains were included in a large collection of faunal skeletons used as a comparative collection assembled by former WSU Anthropology graduate students Kent Harkins and Christopher Brown.
