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.

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.
