with representatives 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.

History and Description of the Remains

    In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, human remains 
representing, at minimum, two 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 numbers 12 
and 13. Number 12 is a mandible from a female, age 18-40, and number 13 
is a mandible from a male, age 18-40. Number 13 is consistent with 
archaeological remains, while number 12 is not likely from an 
archaeological context. No known individuals were identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    All human remains in the possession of the University of Maine, 
Hudson Museum, were reviewed by forensic anthropologist Marcella Sorg, 
Ph.D., D-ABFA on July 16, 2002, who was assisted by former Hudson 
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 
represented by 12 and 13 were determined 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.

Determinations Made by the University of Main, Hudson Museum

determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described

Native American ancestry.

American human remains to 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.
