This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative 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 In approximately the 1940s or 1950s, 193 cultural items of ivory, bone, wood, and stone were removed from the Iyatet site, in Nome County, AK, by anthropologist Mr. J.L. Giddings and local guide Mr. Louis Nakarak. The objects were subsequently purchased by Mr. William Holman of Pacific Grove, CA. Mr. Holman then donated the objects to the Monterey Museum of Art on November 20, 1978. The 193 objects of cultural patrimony are 42 harpoon or projectile points, 38 pendants or beads, 3 fire-starters, 4 hand tools, 6 fishing weights, 37 carvings, 1 scraper, 3 dogsled runners, 1 club, 4 needles or awls, and 54 other objects made of ivory, bone, wood and stone. In the 1978 Deed of Gift to the Monterey Museum of Art, Mr. Holman notes that the objects were excavated from a site 125 miles east of Nome, AK, and were said to date to 6,000 years or more before present. The location and site of Iyatet matches this description, and the Native Village of Shaktoolik in Nome County, AK, is the nearest community that claims cultural affiliation with the site and with the objects of cultural patrimony removed from the site. The Native Village of Shaktoolik has made a claim to these objects and, through consultation, has provided information in support of that claim. Determinations Made by the Monterey Museum of Art Officials of the Monterey Museum of Art have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(D), the 193 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 objects of cultural patrimony and the Native Village of Shaktoolik.

History and Description of the Cultural Item

    In 1951, one cultural item was donated to Custer Battlefield 
National Monument, now known as Little Bighorn Battlefield National 
Monument, by the Rapid City Indian Museum of the Bureau of Indian 
Affairs in Rapid City, SD, which had collected the item from John A. 
Anderson. It is believed that Anderson moved to the Rosebud Reservation 
in 1889 where he worked for the C.P. Jordan Trading Post and as a 
photographer. Later, after Mr. Jordan retired, Anderson became the 
owner/manager of the trading post. Over a span of 45 years, Anderson 
acquired historic objects through trade or purchase that represented 
the life ways of the area people. The one sacred object is a red 
catlinite pipe that originally belonged to, and was used by, the Lakota 
Chief Hollow Horn Bear. The bowl is slightly ornamented with carvings 
toward the stem and the stem is carved at each end.
    Duane Hollow Horn Bear, great-grandson of Chief Hollow Horn Bear, 
is requesting repatriation of the cultural item described above. The 
pipe is needed by Mr. Hollow Horn Bear to continue traditional 
ceremonies. The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Historic Preservation Office 
corroborated Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument's 
determination that Duane Hollow Horn Bear is the most appropriate 
recipient under the Rosebud traditional kinship system and common law 
system of descendance.

Determinations Made by Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

    Officials of Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(C), the one cultural item 
described above is a specific ceremonial object 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. 3005(a)(5)(A), Mr. Duane Hollow Horn 
Bear is the direct lineal descendant of the individual who owned the 
sacred object.

Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim
