[[Page 11676]]

remains were given to the Burke Museum by Dwight Benton (Burke Accn. 
3170). No associated funerary objects are present.

Determinations Made by the Burke Museum

    Officials of the Burke Museum have determined that:
     Based on cranial morphology and museum accession 
documentation, 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 Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe; Lower 
Elwha Tribal Community (previously listed as the Lower Elwha Tribal 
Community of the Lower Elwha Reservation, Washington); Makah Indian 
Tribe of the Makah Indian Reservation; Port Gamble Band of S'Klallam 
Indians (previously listed as Port Gamble Indian Community of the Port 
Gamble Reservation, Washington); Quileute Tribe of the Quileute 
Reservation; Quinault Indian Nation (previously listed as the Quinault 
Tribe of the Quinault Reservation, Washington); and the Skokomish 
Indian Tribe (previously listed as the Skokomish Indian Tribe of the 
Skokomish Reservation, Washington).
     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 Hoh Indian Tribe (previously listed as the Hoh Indian Tribe of the 
Hoh Indian Reservation, Washington); Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe; Lower 
Elwha Tribal Community (previously listed as the Lower Elwha Tribal 
Community of the Lower Elwha Reservation, Washington); Makah Indian 
Tribe of the Makah Indian Reservation; Port Gamble Band of S'Klallam 
Indians (previously listed as Port Gamble Indian Community of the Port 
Gamble Reservation, Washington); Quileute Tribe of the Quileute 
Reservation; Quinault Indian Nation (previously listed as the Quinault 
Tribe of the Quinault Reservation, Washington); and the Skokomish 
Indian Tribe (previously listed as the Skokomish Indian Tribe of the 
Skokomish Reservation, Washington) (hereafter referred to as ``The 
Aboriginal Land Tribes''). The Treaty of the Quinault River of 1855 was 
signed by representatives from the Hoh Indian Tribe (previously listed 
as the Hoh Indian Tribe of the Hoh Indian Reservation, Washington); 
Quileute Tribe of the Quileute Reservation; and the Quinault Indian 
Nation (previously listed as the Quinault Tribe of the Quinault 
Reservation, Washington). The Treaty of Neah Bay of 1855 was signed by 
representatives from Makah Indian Tribe of the Makah Indian 
Reservation. The Treaty of Point No Point of 1855 was signed by 
representatives from the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe; Lower Elwha Tribal 
Community (previously listed as the Lower Elwha Tribal Community of the 
Lower Elwha Reservation, Washington); Port Gamble Band of S'Klallam 
Indians (previously listed as Port Gamble Indian Community of the Port 
Gamble Reservation, Washington); and the Skokomish Indian Tribe 
(previously listed as the Skokomish Indian Tribe of the Skokomish 
Reservation, Washington).
     Other credible lines of evidence indicate that the land 
from which the Native American human remains were removed is the 
aboriginal land of The Aboriginal Land 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 Land Tribes. As stated during 
consultation, the Lower Elwha Tribal Community intends to take the lead 
on repatriation. The Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe, Port Gamble Band of 
S'Klallam Indians, and the Skokomish Indian Tribe have stated their 
support for moving forward with repatriation to the Lower Elwha Tribal 
Community.

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 98115, telephone (206) 685-3849, before March 21, 2013.
