History and Description of the Remains In 1918, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the further out of two stone cairns on a point in Wrangell, Alaska. These remains were collected by Ernest P. Walker, who donated them to the Burke Museum in November of 1918 (Burke Accn. #1508). No known individuals were identified. No funerary objects are present. The human remains are consistent with Native American morphology, as evidenced through tooth wear as well as the presence of wormian bones.

Wrangell was the site of a village of the Stikine (Smythe 1994). The Stikine people are now represented by the modern-day Wrangell Cooperative Association.

responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has 
control of the Native American human remains and associated funerary

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Herrett 
Center for Arts and Science professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Gila River Indian Community of the Gila River 
Indian Reservation, Arizona (on behalf of themselves and the Ak-Chin 
Indian Community of the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Indian Reservation, Arizona; 
Salt River Pima-Maricopa of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona; and 
the Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona); Hopi Tribe of Arizona; and the 
Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico (hereafter referred to 
as ``The Tribes'').

History and Description of the Remains

    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from an unknown location in Arizona. In 1975, 
the human remains and associated funerary object were donated to the 
Herrett Center for Arts and Science, College of Southern Idaho, by the 
family of James H. Berkley. No known individuals were identified. The 
one associated funerary object is a ceramic cremation vessel with a 
lid. The human remains are a cremation, which together with the ceramic 
cremation vessel, is associated with the Sedentary Period of the 
Sacaton Phase, dating from A.D. 900-1100. The evidence provided by this 
burial practice, the associated funerary object, and the geographical 
provenience of the human remains and associated funerary object 
supports a cultural affiliation to the Hohokam culture.
    Cultural continuity between the prehistoric occupants of the region 
and present-day O'odham and Puebloan peoples is supported by 
continuities in settlement patterns, architectural technologies, 
basketry, textiles, ceramic technology, ritual practices, and oral 
traditions. Documentation submitted by representatives of the Gila 
River Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation, Arizona 
establishes cultural continuities between the ancient Hohokam and 
present-day O'odham tribes. The descendants of the O'odham peoples of 
the area described above are members of the Ak-Chin Indian Community of 
the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Indian Reservation, Arizona; Gila River Indian 
Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation, Arizona; Salt River 
Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona; 
and the Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona. The descendants of the 
Puebloan peoples of the area described above are members of the Hopi 
Tribe of Arizona and the Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New 
Mexico.

Determinations Made by the Herrett Center for Arts and Science, College 
of Southern Idaho

    Officials of the Herrett Center for Arts and Science, College of 
Southern Idaho, have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described

Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described 
above is reasonably believed to have been placed with or near 
individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the 
death rite or ceremony.
     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 associated funerary object and The Tribes.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes itself to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary 
object should contact Phyllis Oppenheim, Collections Manager, Herrett
