I. Abstract The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), requires museums to compile certain information (summaries, inventories, and notices) regarding Native American cultural items in their possession or control and provide that information to lineal descendants, likely interested Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, and the National NAGPRA Program (acting on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior, housed in the National Park Service), to support consultation in the process of publishing notices that establish rights to repatriation. The summaries are general descriptions of the museum’s Native American collection, sent to all possibly interested tribes to disclose the collection, should the tribe desire to consult on items and present a claim. The inventories are item-by-item lists of the human remains and their funerary objects, upon which the museum consults with likely affiliated tribes to determine cultural affiliation, tribal land origination, or origination from aboriginal lands of Federal recognized tribes. Consultation and claims for items require information exchange between museums and tribes on the collections. Notices of Inventory Completion, published in the Federal Register indicate the museum decisions of rights of lineal descendants and tribes to receive human remains and funerary objects; Notices of Intent to Repatriate, published in the Federal Register, indicate the agreements of museums and tribes to transfer control to tribes of funerary objects, sacred objects and objects of cultural patrimony. Museums identify NAGPRA protected items in the collection through examination of museum records and from consultation with tribes. The National NAGPRA Program maintains the public databases of summary, inventory and notice information to support consultation. In the first 20 years of the administration of NAGPRA approximately 40,000 Native American human remains, of a possible collection of 180,000 individuals, have been listed in NAGPRA notices. Information collected in previous years is of lasting benefit, diminishing efforts in future years. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1024–0144.

Please reference IC ‘‘1024-National Recreation Trails and National Water Trails System’’ in the subject line. SUMMARY: I. Abstract The purpose of this information collection is to assist the National Park Service (NPS) in submitting suitable trails or trail systems to the Secretary of the Interior for designation as National Recreation Trails (NRTs), and in recommending exemplary water trails to the Secretary of the Interior for designation as National Water Trails (NWTs) to be included in the National Water Trails System (NWTS). The information collected will be used by the NPS, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to evaluate the applications for adherence to NRT requirements and criteria and for NWTs, to determine if additional best management practices have been met. The NPS administers the NRT program by authority of section 4 of the National Trails System Act (16 U.S.C. 1243). Secretarial Order No. 3319 established National Water Trails as a class of National Recreation Trails and directed that such trails collectively be considered in a National Water Trail System. Designation as a NRT provides national recognition to local and regional trails or trail systems, acknowledging local and state efforts to build and maintain viable trails and trail systems. This recognition function is shared by the Secretary of Agriculture (for trails on National Forest lands and waters) and the Secretary of the Interior (for all other trails). The Secretary of the Interior has delegated NRT coordination to the NPS, which also maintains the system of record for the more than 1,200 NRTs and 9 NWTs designated to date. The NWTS is focused on building a national network of exceptional water trails that can be sustained by an ever growing and vibrant water trail community. The NWTS connects Americans to the nation’s waterways and strengthens the conservation and restoration of those waterways. Best management practices provide high quality water-based outdoor recreational opportunities. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1024–New. Title: National Recreation Trails. Form(s): Online application form for NRTs, and pdf application form for NWTs. Type of Request: Existing collection in use without approval.

Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. Estimated Number of Responses: 80. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 90.

I. Abstract

    The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act 
(NAGPRA), requires museums to compile certain information (summaries, 
inventories, and notices) regarding Native American cultural items in 
their possession or control and provide that information to lineal 
descendants, likely interested Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian 
organizations, and the National NAGPRA Program (acting on behalf of the 
Secretary of the Interior, housed in the National Park Service), to 
support consultation in the process of publishing notices that 
establish rights to repatriation. The summaries are general 
descriptions of the museum's Native American collection, sent to all 
possibly interested tribes to disclose the collection, should the tribe 
desire to consult on items and present a claim. The inventories are 
item-by-item lists of the human remains and their funerary objects, 
upon which the museum consults with likely affiliated tribes to 
determine cultural affiliation, tribal land origination, or origination 
from aboriginal lands of Federal recognized tribes.
    Consultation and claims for items require information exchange 
between museums and tribes on the collections. Notices of Inventory 
Completion, published in the Federal Register indicate the museum 
decisions of rights of lineal descendants and tribes to receive human 
remains and funerary objects; Notices of Intent to Repatriate, 
published in the Federal Register, indicate the agreements of museums 
and tribes to transfer control to tribes of funerary objects, sacred 
objects and objects of cultural patrimony. Museums identify NAGPRA 
protected items in the collection through examination of museum records 
and from consultation with tribes.
    The National NAGPRA Program maintains the public databases of 
summary, inventory and notice information to support consultation. In 
the first 20 years of the administration of NAGPRA approximately 40,000 
Native American human remains, of a possible collection of 180,000 
individuals, have been listed in NAGPRA notices. Information collected 
in previous years is of lasting benefit, diminishing efforts in future 
years.
