History and Description of the Remains

    At an unknown date, most likely prior to 1965, human remains 
representing, at minimum, one individual (Specimen 5) were 
removed from an unknown area most likely within the Columbia Plateau, 
WA. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present.

Determinations Made by the University of Washington, Department of 
Anthropology

    Officials of the University of Washington, Department of 
Anthropology, have determined that:
     Based on cranial morphology, 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 were 
removed is the aboriginal land of the Confederated Tribes and Bands of 
the Yakama Nation; Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation; 
Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (previously 
listed as the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon); 
Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon; and the 
Nez Perce Tribe (previously listed as Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho).
     Multiple lines of evidence, including treaties, Acts of 
Congress, and Executive Orders, indicate that the land from which the 
Native American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of 
the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation; Confederated 
Tribes of the Colville Reservation; Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla 
Indian Reservation (previously listed as the Confederated Tribes of the 
Umatilla Reservation, Oregon); Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs 
Reservation of Oregon; and the Nez Perce Tribe (previously listed as 
Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho).
     Other credible lines of evidence, indicate that the land 
from which the Native American human remains were removed is the 
aboriginal land of the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama 
Nation; Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation; Confederated 
Tribes of the Umatilla Indian

Reservation (previously listed as the Confederated Tribes of the

Reservation of Oregon; Nez Perce Tribe (previously listed as Nez Perce 
Tribe of Idaho); and the Wanapum Band, a non-Federally recognized 
Indian group (hereafter referred to as ``The Aboriginal Tribes'').
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains may be to The Aboriginal Tribes.

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 
contact Peter Lape, Burke Museum, University of Washington, Box 353010, 
Seattle, WA 98195, telephone (206) 685-3849, before February 25, 2013.
