History and Description of the Remains

    In about 1929, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed by schoolchildren from a mound located on the 
property of Mound Fort School, just east of Washington Avenue, in the 
city of Ogden, Weber County, UT. The human remains and associated 
funerary objects were donated to the University of Utah in 1929. 
Transfer of the University of Utah's anthropology collections to the 
Natural History Museum of Utah occurred on November 10, 1972. No known 
individuals were identified. The 10 associated funerary objects 
received with the human remains are 1 metal ball, 1 leather sheath, 1 
piece unworked wood, 2 saddle horn fragments, 2 pieces worked bone, 2 
fragments of unworked bone, and 1 shell bead.
    In about 1931, human remains representing, at minimum, nine 
individuals were removed by schoolchildren from a mound one block south 
of Weber County High School in the city of Ogden, Weber County, UT. The 
human remains and associated funerary objects were donated to the 
University of Utah in 1931. Transfer of the University of Utah's 
anthropology collections to the Utah Museum of Natural History occurred 
on November 10, 1972. No known individuals were identified. The 6 
associated funerary objects are 1 lot leather straps, 1 piece of 
groundstone, a metal knife, 2 unworked faunal bone, and a shell 
pendant. These objects indicate that the human remains are from the 
contact period.
    In about 1940, human remains representing, at minimum, three 
individuals were found at the base of a rockslide on the Bonneville 
Terrace southeast of Brigham City, in Box Elder County, UT. The human 
remains and associated funerary objects were donated to the University 
of Utah in 1940. Transfer of the University of Utah's anthropology 
collections to the Utah Museum of Natural History occurred on November 
10, 1972. No known individuals were identified. The 13 associated 
funerary objects are a bow fragment, a spoon, a worked horn, 1 lot of 
horse tack, a metal punch, 1 piece of worked wood, gunshot, two 
mirrors, a harness ring, an awl, and two pieces of unworked faunal 
bone. These objects indicate that the human remains are from the 
contact period.
    The result of an osteological analysis indicates that the human 
remains listed in this notice are Native American. Based on the 
geographic location of the burial and the presence of historic material 
cultural in the mound, it has been determined that the human remains 
are affiliated with the Northwestern Band of Shoshoni Nation 
(previously listed as the Northwestern Band of Shoshoni Nation of Utah 
(Washakie)), who inhabited this area during the protohistoric and 
contact period.

Determinations Made by the Natural History Museum of Utah

    Officials of the Natural History Museum of Utah have determined 
that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 13 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 29 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 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 objects and the 
Northwestern Band of Shoshoni Nation (previously listed as the 
Northwestern Band of Shoshoni Nation of Utah (Washakie)).

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes itself to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary 
objects should contact Duncan Metcalfe, Natural History Museum of Utah, 
301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, UT 84108, telephone (801) 581-3876, 
before February 11, 2013. Repatriation of the human remains and 
associated funerary objects to the Northwestern Band of Shoshoni Nation 
(previously listed as the Northwestern Band of Shoshoni Nation of Utah 
(Washakie)) may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come 
forward.
    The Natural History Museum of Utah is responsible for notifying The 
Tribes that this notice has been published.
