The Commission also requires a tribal ordinance to provide that the tribe will perform background investigations and issue licenses for PMOs and key employees according to requirements that are as stringent as those contained in Commission regulations. The NIGC Chair will use the information collected to approve or disapprove the ordinance or amendment thereof. Commission regulations also require tribes to perform background investigations and issue licenses for PMOs and key employees using certain information provided by applicants, such as names, addresses, previous employment records, previous relationships with either Indian tribes or the gaming industry, licensing related to those relationships, any convictions, and any other information that a tribe feels is relevant to the employment of the individuals being investigated. Tribes are then required to keep complete application files. Tribes are also required to create and keep investigative reports, and to submit to the Commission notices of results (licensing eligibility determinations) on PMOs and key employees. Tribes must notify the Commission if they issue or do not issue licenses to PMOs and key employees, and if they revoke said licenses. The Commission uses this information to review the eligibility and suitability determinations that tribes make and advises them if it disagrees with any particular determination. These information collections are mandatory and allow the Commission to carry out its statutory duties. Respondents: Indian tribal gaming operations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,580. Estimated Annual Responses: 193,751. Estimated Time per Response: Depending on the type of information collection, the range of time can vary from 1.0 burden hour to 1,419 burden hours for one item. Frequency of Response: Varies. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours on Respondents: 1,392,450. Estimated Total Non-hour Cost Burden: $3,334,176. Title: NEPA Compliance. OMB Control Number: 3141–0006. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:23 Sep 12, 2013 Jkt 229001 Brief Description of Collection: The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires federal agencies to analyze proposed major federal actions that significantly affect the quality of the human environment. The Commission has taken the position that approving third-party management contracts for the operation of gaming activity under IGRA requires review under NEPA. Depending on the nature of the subject contract and other circumstances, approval of such management contracts may require the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA), or the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). In any case, the proponents of a management contract will be expected to submit information to the Commission and assist in the development of the required NEPA documentation. Respondents: Tribal governing bodies, management companies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3. Estimated Annual Responses: 3. Estimated Time per Response: Depending on whether the response is an EA or an EIS, the range of time can vary from 2.5 burden hours to 12.0 burden hours for one item. Frequency of Response: Varies. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours on Respondents: 26.5. Estimated Total Non-hour Cost Burden: $14,846,686. Title: Issuance of Certificates of SelfRegulation to Tribes for Class II Gaming. OMB Control Number: 3141–0008. Brief Description of Collection: The Act allows any Indian tribe that has conducted Class II gaming for at least three years to petition the Commission for a certificate of self-regulation for its Class II gaming operation(s). The Commission will issue the certificate if it determines that the tribe has conducted its gaming activities in a manner that has: Resulted in an effective and honest accounting of all revenues; a reputation for safe, fair, and honest operation of the gaming activities; and an enterprise free of evidence of criminal or dishonest activity. The tribe must also have adopted and implemented proper accounting, licensing, and enforcement systems, and conducted the gaming operation on a fiscally or economically sound basis. Commission regulations require a tribe interested in receiving a certificate to file with the Commission a petition generally describing the tribe’s gaming operations, its regulatory process, its uses of net gaming revenue, and its accounting and recordkeeping systems. The tribe must also provide copies of various documents in support of the petition. Tribes who have been PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56733 issued a certificate of self-regulation are required to submit to the Commission certain information on an annual basis, including information that establishes that the tribe continuously meets the regulatory eligibility and approval requirements and supporting documentation that explains how tribal gaming revenues were used in accordance with the requirements in 25 U.S.C. 2710(b)(2)(B). Submission of the petition and supporting documentation is voluntary. The Commission will use the information submitted by the tribe in determining whether to issue the certificate of self-regulation. Once a certificate of self-regulation has been issued, the submission of certain other information is mandatory. Respondents: Tribal governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 8. Estimated Annual Responses: 64. Estimated Time per Response: Depending on the information collection, the range of time can vary from 0.75 burden hour to 1,940 burden hours for one item.

Museum records state that Nesbitt and Ellis were ‘‘studying the mound groups’’ of the Benton vicinity, and the two men excavated one burial, made surface collections at several locations, and obtained material from another collector. According to museum records, ‘‘[m]ost of the material was found on Mr. Ellis’s land along the Saline River’’ near Benton, AR. After removal, the human remains and associated funerary objects were accessioned into the Logan Museum’s collection. The human remains are those of an adult male. No known individuals were identified. The 83 associated funerary objects are 1 ceramic bowl, 1 ceramic tripod bottle, 1 broken ceramic jar, 2 chipped-stone picks or chisels, 1 ground and scored rectangular stone object, 2 ground stone knives, 33 bivalve shells, 30 ceramic sherds, 10 mammal elements, 1 turtle shell fragment, and fragments of charcoal. The human remains are Native American based on the method of interment, associated funerary objects, and physical characteristics. The ceramic bowl is a shell-tempered, carinated vessel that is a two-panel example of Friendship Engraved var. Freeman. Its form, more common in the Ouachita River drainage than along the Saline River, is diagnostic of the MidOuachita phase, dating to A.D. 1400– 1500. Because the bowl is shelltempered, it was probably made late in that period. The tripod bottle has a composite design, and Arkansas Archeological Survey archaeologist Mary Beth Trubitt observed that ‘‘the ovals and crosshatched design on the body are typically found on Friendship Engraved carinated bowls,’’ while ‘‘the horizontal line with pendant crosshatched triangles around the bottle neck is often seen around rims of bowls (Hempstead Engraved bowls that are usually grog-tempered, or Hardman Engraved bowls that are usually shelltempered).’’ This evidence points to an estimated date for the bottle in the late 1400s. The bowl and the tripod bottle, both of which feature nearly identical designs, exhibit well-documented Late Caddo styles. The Benton, AR, area is in the northeastern portion of the traditional homeland of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains and associated funerary 
objects was made by the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, 
professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Caddo 
Nation of Oklahoma.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1931, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from a mound near Benton, AR, by Paul H. Nesbitt, curator 
of anthropology at the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, 
and Frank Ellis, owner of the Ellis Museum of Archaeology and 
Anthropology, Maquoketa, IA. The mound was situated near the Saline 
River, but the precise site location is unknown. Museum records state 
that Nesbitt and Ellis were ``studying the mound groups'' of the Benton 
vicinity, and the two men excavated one burial, made surface 
collections at several locations, and obtained material from another 
collector. According to museum records, ``[m]ost of the material was 
found on Mr. Ellis's land along the Saline River'' near Benton, AR. 
After removal, the human remains and associated funerary objects were 
accessioned into the Logan Museum's collection. The human remains are 
those of an adult male. No known individuals were identified. The 83 
associated funerary objects are 1 ceramic bowl, 1 ceramic tripod 
bottle, 1 broken ceramic jar, 2 chipped-stone picks or chisels, 1 
ground and scored rectangular stone object, 2 ground stone knives, 33 
bivalve shells, 30 ceramic sherds, 10 mammal elements, 1 turtle shell 
fragment, and fragments of charcoal.
    The human remains are Native American based on the method of 
interment, associated funerary objects, and physical characteristics. 
The ceramic bowl is a shell-tempered, carinated vessel that is a two-
panel example of Friendship Engraved var. Freeman. Its form, more 
common in the Ouachita River drainage than along the Saline River, is 
diagnostic of the Mid-Ouachita phase, dating to A.D. 1400-1500. Because 
the bowl is shell-tempered, it was probably made late in that period. 
The tripod bottle has a composite design, and Arkansas Archeological 
Survey archaeologist Mary Beth Trubitt observed that ``the ovals and 
crosshatched design on the body are typically found on Friendship 
Engraved carinated bowls,'' while ``the horizontal line with pendant 
crosshatched triangles around the bottle neck is often seen around rims 
of bowls (Hempstead Engraved bowls that are usually grog-tempered, or 
Hardman Engraved bowls that are usually shell-tempered).'' This 
evidence points to an estimated date for the bottle in the late 1400s.
    The bowl and the tripod bottle, both of which feature nearly 
identical designs, exhibit well-documented Late Caddo styles. The 
Benton, AR, area is in the northeastern portion of the traditional 
homeland of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma. Significant Caddo 
archaeological sites such as Hughes Mound are located near Benton, AR. 
Archaeological and ethno-historical evidence indicates a relationship 
of shared group identity between the present-day Caddo Nation of 
Oklahoma and late prehistoric Caddo groups.

Determinations Made by the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College

    Officials of the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College have 
determined that:
     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 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 83 objects described 
in this notice 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 Caddo 
Nation of Oklahoma.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to 
request transfer of control of these human remains and associated
