TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES History and Description of the Remains In 1939, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from private or state-owned lands in Coconino County, AZ, by private individuals without permission or knowledge of the landowners. Records of the removal provide substantive evidence that the human remains and associated funerary object were recovered from a prehistoric archeological site. Due to the interspersed nature of the private and state land parcels in this area and the casual nature of the excavation records, it is not possible to accurately establish the location of the site from which they were removed. In 1981, the human remains and associated funerary object were donated to the Museum of Northern Arizona. The associate funerary object is one ceramic vessel. The human remains and associated funerary object were removed from a site related to the Northern Sinagua archeological culture. The Museum of Northern Arizona is using the cultural affiliation study completed by the USDA Forest Service in 1996 for prehistoric archeological remains in Coconino County, AZ, including lands directly adjacent to this site. Based on evidence relevant to archeological, anthropological, biological, geographical, oral traditions/folklore and kinship, the USDA Forest Service established that the Northern Sinagua were most closely affiliated with the modern Hopi Tribe of Arizona. In reviewing the 1996 USDA cultural affiliation study, as well as pertinent literature in the site records at the Museum of Northern Arizona and a study of the human remains and associated funerary object, the Museum of Northern Arizona concurs that the objects are most closely affiliated with the modern Hopi Tribe of Arizona. Determinations Made by the Museum of Northern Arizona Officials of the Museum of Northern Arizona 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 one object described in this notice is 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.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1939, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from private or state-owned lands in Coconino County, AZ, 
by private individuals without permission or knowledge of the 
landowners. Records of the removal provide substantive evidence that 
the human remains and associated funerary object were recovered from a 
prehistoric archeological site. Due to the interspersed nature of the 
private and state land parcels in this area and the casual nature of 
the excavation records, it is not possible to accurately establish the 
location of the site from which they were removed. In 1981, the human 
remains and associated funerary object were donated to the Museum of 
Northern Arizona. The associate funerary object is one ceramic vessel.
    The human remains and associated funerary object were removed from 
a site related to the Northern Sinagua archeological culture. The 
Museum of Northern Arizona is using the cultural affiliation study 
completed by the USDA Forest Service in 1996 for prehistoric 
archeological remains in Coconino County, AZ, including lands directly 
adjacent to this site. Based on evidence relevant to archeological, 
anthropological, biological, geographical, oral traditions/folklore and 
kinship, the USDA Forest Service established that the Northern Sinagua 
were most closely affiliated with the modern Hopi Tribe of Arizona. In 
reviewing the 1996 USDA cultural affiliation study, as well as 
pertinent literature in the site records at the Museum of Northern 
Arizona and a study of the human remains and associated funerary 
object, the Museum of Northern Arizona concurs that the objects are 
most closely affiliated with the modern Hopi Tribe of Arizona.

Determinations Made by the Museum of Northern Arizona

    Officials of the Museum of Northern Arizona 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 one object described 
in this notice is 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 object and the Hopi 
Tribe of Arizona.

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 funerary object
