The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Grant County, WA.

The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Museum of Anthropology at Washington State University professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. History and Description of the Remains In 1961, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from site 45GR120 in Grant County, WA. The burials were excavated from a cairn marked burial in the Lower Grand Coulee/Sun Lakes region. The work was done in conjunction with an archeological survey of the region directed by Richard Daugherty of Washington State University. Human remains and associated funerary items that were removed from adjacent sites 45GR111 and 45GR120 during the same archeological survey were repatriated in 2011 after a Notice of Inventory Completion was published in the Federal Register on May 13, 2011. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The manner of internment and the character of the associated funerary objects are distinctive for Native American burials of the late prehistoric PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 78379 through historic period on the Columbia Plateau. The site is within the judicially established aboriginal territory of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. Tribal oral tradition and anthropological and historical research indicate the site lies within an area occupied by the Moses Columbia people, who are legally represented by the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.
