History and Description of the Remains Sometime between 1940 and 1960, human remains representing two individuals were removed by an U.S. Air Force airman from an unknown location in Hawaii, likely on the island of Oahu. The airman reportedly found the remains eroding from the sand on the beach and subsequently brought the remains to his home in San Antonio, TX. The human remains consist of two complete skulls, one probably male and one probably female, both adults. After the airman died, his son found the remains and donated them to the Center for Archaeological Research at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Documentation with the remains states the remains were removed from a ‘‘Hawaii hotel site.’’ No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The geographic context suggests that the remains are of Native Hawaiian affiliation. The teeth of both individuals are worn, suggesting a diet containing abrasives, likely associated with archaeological remains. Given the absence of associated objects, it is not possible to ascribe tribal affiliation.

U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains under 
the control of the Center for Archaeological Research at the University

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Center 
for Archaeological Research at the University of Texas at San Antonio 
professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Kia'i 
K[amacr]n[amacr]wai Compliance Enforcement Office of Hawaiian Affairs 
of Oahu, Hawaii.

History and Description of the Remains

    Sometime between 1940 and 1960, human remains representing two 
individuals were removed by an U.S. Air Force airman from an unknown 
location in Hawaii, likely on the island of Oahu. The airman reportedly 
found the remains eroding from the sand on the beach and subsequently 
brought the remains to his home in San Antonio, TX. The human remains 
consist of two complete skulls, one probably male and one probably 
female, both adults. After the airman died, his son found the remains 
and donated them to the Center for Archaeological Research at the 
University of Texas at San Antonio. Documentation with the remains 
states the remains were removed from a ``Hawaii hotel site.'' No known 
individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    The geographic context suggests that the remains are of Native 
Hawaiian affiliation. The teeth of both individuals are worn, 
suggesting a diet containing abrasives, likely associated with 
archaeological remains. Given the absence of associated objects, it is 
not possible to ascribe tribal affiliation.
