History and Description of the Remains

    In August of 1963, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the Gordon Creek burial site (5LR99), in 
Larimer County, CO. The remains were discovered during the course of a 
watershed improvement project in the Gordon Creek drainage eroding out 
of a stream bank on a tributary of Gordon Creek within the Arapaho and 
Roosevelt National Forest. Excavation was conducted by the Department 
of Anthropology, University of Colorado, with the approval of the USDA, 
Forest Service. After the excavation concluded, the human remains and 
the associated funerary objects were sent to the University of Colorado 
Natural History Museum. No known individuals were identified. The 24 
associated funerary objects are 1 stone tool core; 1 stone biface 
perform tool; 1 stone perform tool; 2 stone biface tool fragments; 7 
stone tool flakes; 1 sample of ochre (hematite); 2 animal bones (large 
mammal hyoid bones with cut marks on the ends); 4 elk incisor teeth; 1 
burnt animal bone; 1 soil sample from burial pit; 1 soil sample labeled 
``attempted C14 sample''; 1 carbonized sap specimen; and 1 lot of 
residue from C14 testing.
    Although the human remains were fragmentary, some of the skeleton 
and associated artifacts were removed from a slump below the burial pit 
and some of the skeleton was in situ, all of the skeletal remains were 
stained with a thick coat of red ocher. The remains were interred in a 
flexed position, in an intentionally formed burial pit. Subsequent 
analysis determined that the remains are those of a 25-30 year old 
American Indian (paleoindian) female and that the burial dates to 
approximately 9,000 year B.P. The Gordon Creek burial site is located 
on lands adjudicated by the Indian Claims Commission as the aboriginal 
lands of the Northern Cheyenne, Cheyenne and Arapaho, and Northern 
Arapaho tribes.

Determinations Made by the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest and 
Pawnee National Grasslands

    Officials of the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest and Pawnee 
Grasslands have determined that:
     Based on archaeological evidence the human remains are 
Native American.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and any present-day Indian tribe.
     According to final judgments of the Indian Claims 
Commission, the land from which the Native American human remains and 
associated funerary objects were removed is the aboriginal land of the 
Arapaho Tribe of theWind River Reservation, Wyoming; Cheyenne and 
Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma (formerly the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of 
Oklahoma); and the Northern Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne 
Indian Reservation, Montana.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of one

[[Page 57114]]

(1) individual of Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 24 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 the 
death rite or ceremony.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains and associated funerary objects is to the Northern 
Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, Montana.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes itself to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains or any other Indian tribe 
that believes it satisfies the criteria in 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1) should

National Grasslands, 2150 Centre Avenue, Building E, Fort Collins, CO
