SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains in the possession of the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, University of New Mexico. The human remains were removed from the Paa-ko Pueblo site in Bernalillo County, NM. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. From 1935 to 1937, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals were removed from the Paako Pueblo site (LA 162) in Bernalillo County, NM. The Paa-ko skeletal collection was acquired through field excavations under the direction of Edgar L. Hewett along with the Museum of New Mexico and the University of New Mexico, working in cooperation with the Federal Works Progress Administration. These human remains are in the possession of the San Diego Museum of Man but are under the control of the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, University of New Mexico. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1949, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed by the University of New Mexico (UNM) during an archaeological field school at the Paa-ko Pueblo site (LA 162) in Bernalillo County, NM. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The Paa-ko site is believed to have had two periods of occupation, from PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 approximately A.D. 1300 to 1425 and then again from approximately A.D. 1525 to 1626 or later, the latter period coinciding with the arrival of the Spanish in this region. Documented evidence, material culture, and ethnographical accounts show that the inhabitants of the Paa-ko Pueblo site, during both periods of its occupation, were members of the early Tamayame people, ancestors to the current Native American people of the Pueblo of Santa Ana. Oral tradition of the modern Tamayame, or people of the Pueblo of Santa Ana, ethnographical accounts, and documented archaeological evidence reasonably suggest a line of continued shared group identity between the early archaic peoples of the Southwest, the later Anasazi (or Ancestral Puebloan or Hisatsinom), the Keres people and their branch of early Tamayame (people of Tamaya, a.k.a. Santa Ana) people, and the modern Native American inhabitants of the Pueblo of Santa Ana.

At unknown dates, human remains representing, at minimum, 27 individuals were removed from unknown sites throughout the state of Washington. There is limited or no provenience information for the human remains. Based on the fact that they were disassociated from any acquisition documentation, they were assigned ‘‘found in collection’’ accession numbers in 1973 and 1995. These human remains were crosschecked against the documentation for human remains known to have been missing, but did not match documentation for any specific collection. These human remains and the associated funerary object are most likely to have been removed from sites within the state of Washington. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is a composite artifact bag containing non-human mammal bones, shells, a rock, and two twigs.

determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the 
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Maxwell 
Museum of Anthropology and San Diego Museum of Man professional staff 
in consultation with representatives of the Pueblo of Santa Ana, New 
Mexico.

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    From 1935 to 1937, human remains representing, at minimum, three 
individuals were removed from the Paa-ko Pueblo site (LA 162) in 
Bernalillo County, NM. The Paa-ko skeletal collection was acquired 
through field excavations under the direction of Edgar L. Hewett along 
with the Museum of New Mexico and the University of New Mexico, working 
in cooperation with the Federal Works Progress Administration. These 
human remains are in the possession of the San Diego Museum of Man but 
are under the control of the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, University 
of New Mexico. No known individuals were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    In 1949, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals 
were removed by the University of New Mexico (UNM) during an 
archaeological field school at the Paa-ko Pueblo site (LA 162) in 
Bernalillo County, NM. No known individuals were identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    The Paa-ko site is believed to have had two periods of occupation, 
from approximately A.D. 1300 to 1425 and then again from approximately 
A.D. 1525 to 1626 or later, the latter period coinciding with the 
arrival of the Spanish in this region. Documented evidence, material 
culture, and ethnographical accounts show that the inhabitants of the 
Paa-ko Pueblo site, during both periods of its occupation, were members 
of the early Tamayame people, ancestors to the current Native American 
people of the Pueblo of Santa Ana. Oral tradition of the modern 
Tamayame, or people of the Pueblo of Santa Ana, ethnographical 
accounts, and documented archaeological evidence reasonably suggest a 
line of continued shared group identity between the early archaic 
peoples of the Southwest, the later Anasazi (or Ancestral Puebloan or 
Hisatsinom), the Keres people and their branch of early Tamayame 
(people of Tamaya, a.k.a. Santa Ana) people, and the modern Native 
American inhabitants of the Pueblo of Santa Ana.

Determinations Made by the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, University 
of New Mexico

    Officials of the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, University of New 
Mexico have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of five individuals 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 Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes itself to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Heather 
Edgar, Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, MSC01 1050, University of New 
Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131, telephone (505) 277-4415 before 
September 4, 2012. Repatriation of the human remains to the Pueblo of

claimants come forward.
