In 1943, the remains were found in the office of Mr. Lee A. Brown, an employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, by Mr. Fred R. Johnson, also a Forest Service employee. The remains were donated by Mr. Johnson to Dr. E.B. Renaud of the University of Denver Department of Anthropology. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Dr. Renaud, and laboratory assistant David DeHarport, analyzed the remains in 1943, and determined that they were Ancestral Puebloan based on the occipital deformation, tooth-wear, and reported origin from southwestern Colorado. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, San Juan National Forest, has reviewed all available documentation relating to the human remains, including the research report prepared by the University of Denver Department of Anthropology and Museum of Anthropology for the original Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register (66 FR 51472–51474, October 9, 2001), and has concluded that the human remains were removed from a location in southwest Colorado extensively occupied by the Ancestral Puebloans for approximately 800 years. In conjunction with the original analysis and based on the preponderance of the evidence, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, San Juan National Forest has determined that there is a cultural affiliation between the human remains and present-day Indian tribes who are the descendants of the Ancestral Puebloans in southwestern Colorado. Determinations Made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, San Juan National Forest Officials of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, San Juan National Forest have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9–10), the human remains described 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 Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Ohkay Owingeh, New Mexico (formerly the Pueblo of San Juan); Pueblo of VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:10 Jun 01, 2012 Jkt 226001 Acoma, New Mexico; Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico; Pueblo of Laguna, New Mexico; Pueblo of Nambe, New Mexico; Pueblo of Picuris, New Mexico; Pueblo of Pojoaque, New Mexico; Pueblo of San Ildefonso, New Mexico; Pueblo of Santa Clara, New Mexico; Pueblo of Taos, New Mexico; Pueblo of Tesuque, New Mexico; Pueblo of Zia, New Mexico; and the Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico.

History and Description of the Remains

    In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, human remains 
representing, at minimum, three individuals were removed from unknown 
sites in the state of Maine. The remains were a part of a collection 
loan to the University of Maine, Hudson Museum, by the former Portland 
Society of Natural History and subsequently donated to the University 
of Maine, Hudson Museum, by the Maine Audubon Society. The human 
remains are identified at the University of Maine, Hudson Museum, as

archaeological site. Number 16 is a cranium with no accession number 
and unknown provenience. No known individuals were identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.

Museum Director Stephen Whittington, Lisa Hunter, and Kentra Gleuck. 
The resulting report indicates the minimum number of individuals, age, 
sex, ancestry, and provenience if available. The human remains

to be of Native American ancestry and have provenience to the ancestral 
territories of the Aroostook Band of Micmacs Indians of Maine, Houlton 
Band of Maliseet Indians of Maine, Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine, and 
the Penobscot Tribe of Maine.

Native American ancestry.

Maine, Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians of Maine, Passamaquoddy Tribe 
of Maine, and the Penobscot Tribe of Maine.
