Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 149 / Thursday, August 2, 2012 / Notices with a burial probably exposed during the 1949 field school. Catalogue No. 2010.44.1 is a bowl from a looted burial. The bowl was surrendered to the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology. The location of the human remains from these burials is unknown. The Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico, claims ties of direct descent from villagers who resided at the Paa-ko Pueblo site and is seeking repatriation of funerary objects from the site. After repatriation, the funerary objects will be reburied at the Paa-ko site. Repatriation and reburial of the unassociated funerary objects described in this notice will be coordinated with repatriation and reburial of human remains from this site, which will be described in a separate Notice of Inventory Completion. Determination Made by the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology The Collections and Research Committee of the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology has determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the four unassociated funerary objects described above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of a death rite or ceremony and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the unassociated funerary objects and Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Additional Representations and Disposition Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the unassociated funerary objects should contact David Phillips, Curator of Archaeology, Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, MSC01 1050, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131, telephone (505) 277–9229, before September 4, 2012. Repatriation of the unassociated funerary objects to the Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico, may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward. The Maxwell Museum is responsible for notifying the Pueblo of Santa Ana, New Mexico, that this notice has been published. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:15 Aug 01, 2012 Jkt 226001 46115 Dated: July 5, 2012.

[FR Doc. 2012–18927 Filed 8–1–12; 8:45 am] History and Description of the Remains From 1935 to 1937, human remains representing, at minimum, 209 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. The Paa-ko skeletal collection was sent to Spencer Rogers, the Scientific Director of the San Diego Museum of Man, in 1950. Dr. Rogers moved a portion of these remains to San Diego State College for research. Another portion of the Paa-ko skeletal collection was housed at the University of Southern California. When Dr. Rogers retired from San Diego State College in 1971, both collections were returned to the San Diego Museum of Man. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Of the 209 individuals in the Paa-ko collection, 117 are sub-adults and 92 are adults. In the total collection, 191 sets of remains are of prehistoric origin and 18 sets of remains are of historic origin. 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 (LA 162), 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.

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 San Diego Museum of Man. 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 human remains. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.

Consultation

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

History and Description of the Remains

    From 1935 to 1937, human remains representing, at minimum, 209 
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. The Paa-
ko skeletal collection was sent to Spencer Rogers, the Scientific 
Director of the San Diego Museum of Man, in 1950. Dr. Rogers moved a 
portion of these remains to San Diego State College for research. 
Another portion of the Paa-ko skeletal collection was housed at the 
University of Southern California. When Dr. Rogers retired from San 
Diego State College in 1971, both collections were returned to the San 
Diego Museum of Man. No known individuals were identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    Of the 209 individuals in the Paa-ko collection, 117 are sub-adults 
and 92 are adults. In the total collection, 191 sets of remains are of 
prehistoric origin and 18 sets of remains are of historic origin. 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 (LA 162), 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 San Diego Museum of Man

    Officials of the San Diego Museum of Man have determined that:

[[Page 46116]]

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 209 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 Philip 
Hoog, San Diego Museum of Man, 1350 El Prado, Balboa Park, San Diego, 
CA 92101, telephone (619) 239-2001, ext. 43 before September 4, 2012. 
Repatriation of the human remains to the Pueblo of Santa Ana, New 
Mexico, may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come 
forward.
    The San Diego Museum of Man is responsible for notifying the Pueblo 
of Santa Ana, New Mexico that this notice has been published.
