Download as PDF 21414 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 69 / Wednesday, April 10, 2013 / Notices TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. History and Description of the Cultural Items The 90 cultural items consist of Western Apache ceremonial items collected at the San Carlos Apache Reservation and White Mountain Apache Reservation in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The items to be repatriated come from four separate Field Museum accessions. Of the 90 requested cultural items, 21 items come from Field Museum accession 769. Charles Owen, acting on behalf of The Field Museum of Natural History, purchased these 21 items from various individuals on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, Arizona, in the spring of 1901, during a Field Columbian Museum expedition to the Southwest. The requested items include 8 medicine hats, 5 buckskin medicine shirts, 3 cradle charms/ornaments, 1 necklace, 1 wristlet of medicine beads, 2 medicine shields, and 1 medicine cord with a wooden figure. Of the 90 requested cultural items, 67 items come from Field Museum accession 847. Charles Owen purchased these 67 items from various individuals on the White Mountain Apache and San Carlos Reservations during a 1903 Field Columbian Museum expedition to the Southwest. The requested items include 11 medicine strings, 18 painted medicine shirts and buckskins, 12 medicine hats, 7 necklaces, 4 wooden figures, 3 amulets, 2 medicine rings, 2 buckskin bags with wooden figures, 2 wristlets, 1 necklace and bag, 1 group of 12 eagle breath feathers, 1 hunting charm, 1 medicine shield, 1 medicine stick, and 1 wooden medicine cross. Of the 90 requested cultural items, one item comes from Field Museum accession 895. This item was purchased by the Field Columbian Museum in 1904, in Chicago, from an individual identified as Apache. This item is a wooden figure, and is identified in collection records as an ‘‘Apache’s Medicine-man’s effigy.’’ Charles Owen had previously seen the figure on the Apache Reservation during one of his expeditions in 1901 or 1903, but had been unable to purchase it for lack of funds. Of the 90 requested cultural items, one item comes from Field Museum accession 1926. The Field Museum of Natural History accessioned this item in VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:59 Apr 09, 2013 Jkt 229001 1931, receiving it as a gift from Mrs. A. Shreve Badger of Chicago. This item is identified in collection records as a ‘‘medicine man’s hat.’’ According to donor information, the hat was originally collected on the Fort Apache Reservation in 1884 or 1885. The 90 cultural items have been identified as Native American sacred objects and objects of cultural patrimony through museum records, scholarly publications, primary documents, consultation information, and testimony provided by representatives of the Western Apache NAGPRA Working group, a consortium of the San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona; and the Yavapai-Apache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona. Determinations Made by The Field Museum of Natural History Officials of The Field Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(C), the 90 cultural items described above are specific ceremonial objects needed by traditional Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by their present-day adherents. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(D), the 90 cultural items described above have ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, rather than property owned by an individual. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the 90 cultural items and the San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona; and the Yavapai-Apache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona. Additional Requestors and Disposition Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim these cultural items should submit a written request with information in support of the claim to Helen Robbins, Repatriation Director, The Field Museum, 1400 South Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605, telephone (312) 665–7317, by May 10, 2013. After that date, if no additional claimants have come forward, transfer of control of the sacred objects and objects of cultural patrimony through PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group, to the San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona; and Yavapai-Apache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona, may proceed. The Field Museum of Natural History is responsible for notifying the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, Arizona; Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico; Mescalero Apache Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico; San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona; Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona; White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona; and the YavapaiApache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona, that this notice has been published.

which Reclamation has evaluated and preliminarily determined to meet 
the requirements of these Criteria.

Plan adequacy is invited at this time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are inviting the public to comment on our 
preliminary (i.e., draft) determination of Plan adequacy. Section 
3405(e) of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act (Title 34 Pub. L.

management practices that shall ``develop criteria for evaluating the 
adequacy of all water conservation plans developed by project 
contractors, including those plans required by section 210 of the 
Reclamation Reform Act of 1982.'' Also, according to Section 
3405(e)(1), these criteria must be developed ``with the purpose of 
promoting the highest level of water use efficiency reasonably 
achievable by project contractors using best available cost-effective 
technology and best management practices.'' These criteria state that 
all parties (Contractors) that contract with Reclamation for water 
supplies (municipal and industrial contracts over 2,000 acre-feet and 
agricultural contracts over 2,000 irrigable acres) must prepare a Plan 
that contains the following information:
    1. Description of the District;
    2. Inventory of Water Resources;
    3. Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Agricultural Contractors;
    4. BMPs for Urban Contractors;

    6. Exemption Process;
    7. Regional Criteria; and
    8. Five-Year Revisions.

95825. Our practice is to make comments, including names and home 
addresses of respondents, available for public review. If you wish to
