The remains were removed by Bob Atwell and Emil Gabeline and subsequently donated to the Burke Museum (Burke Accn. #1963– 50). During initial consultations, the remains were believed to have been removed from Careless Bay in Island County, WA. The remains were included in a Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register (78 FR 45958–45959, July 30, 2013). After further research it has been determined that the remains were collected from Useless Bay on southern Whidbey Island. A Correction Notice of Inventory Completion will be forthcoming and will remove the relevant paragraph. No known individuals were identified. No funerary objects are present. Native American speakers of the Northern dialect of the Lushootseed language claim cultural heritage to southern Whidbey Island. Historical and anthropological sources (Mooney 1896, Ruby and Brown 1986, Spier 1936, and Swanton 1952) indicate that the Snohomish occupied southern Whidbey Island. The Sdugwadskabsh band of Snohomish people lived at Newell at Useless Bay (Swanton 1952). The Indian Claims Commission determined that Useless Bay was within the aboriginal territory of the Snohomish people. Holmes Harbor was one of the areas the Stillaguamish and other tribes were told to move to after being forced to leave their villages on the mainland (Deur 2009, Grady 2012). Holmes Harbor is in close proximity to Useless Bay. Today, descendants of Snohomish are represented by the Tulalip Tribes of Washington. Determinations Made by the Burke Museum Officials of the Burke Museum have determined that: • Based on archaeological evidence, the human remains have been determined to be Native American. • 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(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians of Washington (previously listed as Stillaguamish Tribe of VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:55 Oct 24, 2013 Jkt 232001 Washington) and the Tulalip Tribes of Washington (previously listed as the Tulalip Tribes of the Tulalip Reservation, Washington).

In the Federal Register (73 FR 62533– 62535, October 21, 2008), paragraph 5, sentence three is corrected by substituting the following sentences: The museum has also determined that control of the human remains and associated funerary objects in paragraphs 7–8 is misattributed for DU CO X:16:12 per 43 CFR 10.2(a)(3)(ii). A separate notice will be published by the Bureau of Land Management with that determination.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1963, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from Useless Bay in Island County, WA. The remains were 
removed by Bob Atwell and Emil Gabeline and subsequently donated to the 
Burke Museum (Burke Accn. 1963-50). During initial 
consultations, the remains were believed to have been removed from 
Careless Bay in Island County, WA. The remains were included in a 
Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register (78 FR 
45958-45959, July 30, 2013). After further research it has been 
determined that the remains were collected from Useless Bay on southern 
Whidbey Island. A Correction Notice of Inventory Completion will be 
forthcoming and will remove the relevant paragraph. No known 
individuals were identified. No funerary objects are present.
    Native American speakers of the Northern dialect of the Lushootseed 
language claim cultural heritage to southern Whidbey Island. Historical 
and anthropological sources (Mooney 1896, Ruby and Brown 1986, Spier 
1936, and Swanton 1952) indicate that the Snohomish occupied southern

close proximity to Useless Bay. Today, descendants of Snohomish are 
represented by the Tulalip Tribes of Washington.

Determinations Made by the Burke Museum

    Officials of the Burke Museum have determined that:
     Based on archaeological evidence, the human remains have 
been determined to be Native American.
     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(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians of 
Washington (previously listed as Stillaguamish Tribe of Washington) and 
the Tulalip Tribes of Washington (previously listed as the Tulalip 
Tribes of the Tulalip Reservation, Washington).

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 should submit a 
written request with information in support of the request to Peter
