identified. The four associated funerary objects are Tusayan Black-on-
White Kayenta variety sherds.
    In the 1950s, human remains representing a minimum of 12 
individuals were removed from NA638 in Coconino County, AZ, by National 
Park Service personnel. The site can no longer be located, but is 
described as a two- to three-room stone house. No known individuals

    Wupatki National Monument has determined that there is not 
sufficient evidence to support a cultural affiliation determination for 
the human remains described above.

Determinations Made by Wupatki National Monument

    Officials of Wupatki National Monument have determined that:
     Based on osteological analysis, 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

associated funerary objects were removed is the aboriginal land of the 
Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Arizona; Havasupai Tribe of the Havasupai 
Reservation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Hualapai Indian Tribe of 
the Hualapai Indian Reservation, Arizona; Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians

Arizona; and Yavapai-Prescott Tribe of the Yavapai Reservation, 
Arizona.
     Multiple lines of evidence, including treaties, Acts of 
Congress, and Executive Orders, indicate that the land from which the 
Native American human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed is the aboriginal land of the Havasupai Tribe of the Havasupai 
Reservation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Hualapai Indian Tribe of 
the Hualapai Indian Reservation, Arizona; Jicarilla Apache Nation, New 
Mexico; Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians of the Kaibab Indian Reservation, 
Arizona; Mescalero Apache Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New 
Mexico; Navajo Nation, Arizona, New Mexico & Utah; San Carlos Apache 
Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona; San Juan Southern Paiute 
Tribe of Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; and White Mountain 
Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona.
     Other credible lines of evidence, including consultation 
with tribal representatives, indicate that the land from which the 
Native American human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed is the aboriginal land of the Zuni Tribe of the Zuni 
Reservation, New Mexico.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 17 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 163 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. The National Park Service intends to convey 
the associated funerary object to the tribes pursuant to 16 U.S.C. 18f-
2.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains may be to the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Arizona; 
Havasupai Tribe of the Havasupai Reservation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of 
Arizona; Hualapai Indian Tribe of the Hualapai Indian Reservation,
