Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 13674 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 47 / Tuesday, March 11, 2014 / Notices (Pt. St. George), in Del Norte County, CA, by Michael Campbell. On February 22, 1973, Michael Campbell donated the items to the DNCHS. The 89 unassociated funerary objects are 54 projectile points, 8 bone fragments, 6 shell beads, 1 lot of restrung button beads and Dentalium, and 20 stone fragments (catalog number A–14–G). On an unknown date, 123 cultural items were collected from Yan’-daa-k’vt (Burnt Ranch), in Del Norte County, CA, by Marion Van Meter. On December 23, 1975, Marion Van Meter donated the items to the DNCHS. The 123 unassociated funerary objects are 123 arrowheads (catalog number 4). In August 1982, one cultural item was collected in the Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, in Del Norte County, CA, by Joyce Lawrence, a park visitor. On August 5, 1982, Joyce Lawrence donated the item to the DNCHS. The one unassociated funerary object is 1 piece of obsidian (catalog number 442–3). On an unknown date, four cultural items were removed from an unknown location in Tolowa territory, by Richard Goss. On May 5, 1986, Richard Goss donated the items to the DNCHS. The four unassociated funerary objects are 4 lots of restrung glass beads (catalog number 553). During the past 60 years, amateur and university-funded archeologists have removed cultural items from Taa-ghii∼’a∼ (Point St. George), Xaa-wan’-k’wvt (Howonquet), and Yan’-daa-k’vt (Burnt Ranch), as well as many other locations within the traditional territory of the Tolowa Dee-ni’. The historical evidence associated with the massacres that occurred at the Tolowa sites from which the cultural items in this notice were removed, as well as the collecting and looting patterns in Del Norte County, support the assertion that these sites became burial sites at the time of the mass executions there. Furthermore, during consultation, a representative of the Smith River Rancheria, California, confirmed that the cultural items in this notice are known to be present in Tolowa Dee-ni’ burials, and are considered to be and treated as funerary objects. The Smith River Rancheria, California, is comprised of more than 1500 tribal members who descended from occupants of the aboriginal Tolowa Dee-ni’ villages located along the Pacific Coast between Wilson Creek (at the southern end), Sixes River (to the north), and inland to the Applegate River drainage watershed. The locations from which the cultural items were removed are ancestral villages situated within the ancestral territory of the Tolowa Dee-ni’. For the Tolowa, the VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:22 Mar 10, 2014 Jkt 232001 Center of the World is the village of Yan’daa-k’vt (Burnt Ranch), which along with other ancestral villages faced near annihilation and massacre by newcomers to the Tolowa territory. The Tolowa Dee-ni’ Holocaust began in 1851. Within the span of five years Tolowa people were nearly extinct. One of the first and most brutal attacks occurred at Yan’daa-k’vt, while the people gathered for the Earth Renewal Ceremony, Nee-dash. This massacre was followed by another at ‘Ee-chuu-le’, a village along Lake Earl in Del Norte County. According to documentary evidence, this ‘‘. . . massacre left seven layers of bodies in the Dance House before it was set ablaze’’ (Bommelyn 2006). As a result of the mass burnings, villages were transformed into burial grounds for the massacred Tolowa Deeni’ and the items placed with or near them. During consultation, a representative of the Smith River Rancheria, California, identified specific types of items as funerary objects. Yan’daa-k’vt (Burnt Ranch) is recorded as the largest massacre site of Tolowa Dee-ni’. This location is documented as a mass gravesite resulting from the genocidal acts of 1853. It also has been subjected to years of looting and inadvertent discoveries of human remains and funerary objects. Determinations Made by the Del Norte County Historical Society Officials of the Del Norte County Historical Society have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 382 cultural items described above 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 and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from the specific burial sites of Native American individuals. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the unassociated funerary objects and the Smith River Rancheria, California. Additional Requestors and Disposition Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim these cultural items should submit a written request with information in support of the claim to Sean Smith, Del Norte County Historical Society, 577 H St., Crescent City, CA 95531, telephone (707) 464–3922, email manager@delnortehistory.org, by April 10, 2014. After that date, if no additional claimants have come PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 forward, transfer of control of the unassociated funerary objects to the Smith River Rancheria, California, may proceed. The Del Norte County Historical Society is responsible for notifying Smith River Rancheria, California, that this notice has been published. Dated: January 15, 2014.
