Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 149 / Thursday, August 2, 2012 / Notices Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Logan Museum of Anthropology professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES History and Description of the Remains Sometime in 1925, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from a site on the Fort Berthold Reservation in McLean County, ND, by Eric C. Jacobsen. No details are available on the precise site location or collecting methods. It is unknown whether the remains came to the Logan Museum through Alfred Bowers, who conducted archaeological work in association with the museum in the 1920s and 1930s, or if they arrived directly from Jacobsen or through some other party. The remains are labeled as ‘‘Arikara Indian. Reservation Grave. Jacobsen Collection.’’ Cranial morphology is consistent with Arikara patterns. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date prior to 1979, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Fort Berthold Reservation in McLean County, ND, by an unknown collector. No details are available on the precise site location or collecting methods. The remains are labeled ‘‘Mandan Indian (Modern), Ft. Berthold Reservation.’’ Cranial morphology is consistent with Mandan patterns. The pattern of dental wear suggests the remains date to the 19th century, and the weathering and light color of the remains suggests they were collected from an exposed context. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remains are determined to be Native American on the basis of physical characteristics and provenience within the Fort Berthold Reservation. Cultural affiliation is based on provenience, catalog records, and morphology. Both the Arikaras (Sahnish) and Mandans are part of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota. Determinations Made by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Washington, DC, and the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, Beloit, WI Officials of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Logan Museum of Anthropology have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:15 Aug 01, 2012 Jkt 226001 represent the physical remains of two 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 Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota.

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 under 
the control of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian 
Affairs, Washington, DC, and in the physical custody of the Logan 
Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, Beloit, WI. The human remains 
were removed from the Old Kenel townsite, on the Standing Rock Indian 
Reservation, in Corson County, SD.
    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 Logan 
Museum of Anthropology professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North & South 
Dakota and the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold 
Reservation, North Dakota.

History and Description of the Remains

    At an unknown date prior to 1979, human remains representing, at 
minimum, one individual were removed by an unknown collector from the 
Old Kenel townsite on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in Corson 
County, SD. No details are available on the precise site location or 
collecting methods. The Old Kenel townsite was a historic community of 
the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which was flooded after construction of 
Oahe Dam. This townsite was located on the site of a prehistoric Indian 
village that dates to the period of the Extended Middle

Missouri variant of the Plains Village pattern. The human remains could 
be associated with either the historic or prehistoric settlement. The 
remains had been catalogued as Arikara, but there is no apparent basis 
for this designation. No known individuals were identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    The human remains are determined to be Native American on the basis 
of the red pigment applied to the remains. If the remains are from the 
Extended Middle Missouri variant, they are culturally affiliated to 
Mandan descendants, the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold 
Reservation, North Dakota. If the remains are Arikara, as the likely 
erroneous catalogue and ledger records state, they are culturally 
affiliated with the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold 
Reservation, North Dakota. If the remains are associated with the 
historic Lakota Sioux community of Old Kenel, they are culturally 
affiliated with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North & South Dakota, 
on whose reservation the site is located. Because the human remains 
could be associated with either the historic or prehistoric settlement, 
cultural affiliation is determined to be to both of the tribes.

Determinations Made by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of 
Indian Affairs, Washington, DC, and the Logan Museum of Anthropology, 
Beloit College, Beloit, WI

    Officials of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Logan Museum of 
Anthropology have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the 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 Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North & 
South Dakota and the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold 
Reservation, North Dakota.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes itself to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Anna Pardo, 
Museum Program Manager/NAGPRA Coordinator, U.S. Department of the 
Interior, Indian Affairs, 12220 Sunrise Valley Drive, Room 6084, 
Reston, VA 20191, telephone (703) 390-6343, before September 4, 2012.
