No known individuals were identified. The 11 associated funerary objects are: 2 heattreated Raddatz side-notched points; 2 small bifaces; 1 large biface; 4 large primary flakes; 1 copper bracelet; and 1 sandstone abrader.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1964, human remains representing, at minimum, five individuals 
were removed from the Lasley's Point site, in Winnebago County, WI, by 
G. Richard Peske for his dissertation research. The Lasley's Point site 
was originally reported by Publius V. Lawson in 1902, and was partially 
excavated during the 1930s and 1940s by Arthur P. Kanenburg of the 
Oshkosh Public Museum. The human remains at the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison are reported as: From Burial 1, a mid-old age female, 
an adult of unknown age and sex, and a child; from Burial 2, an old age 
adult male and an infant of unknown sex. No known individuals were 
identified. The six associated funerary objects are: 1 portion of a 
plain, shell-tempered prehistoric ceramic pot; 1 portion of a Lake 
Winnebago Focus ceramic vessel; 1 Lake Winnebago Focus ceramic vessel 
portion with strap handles; 1 section of a small Lake Winnebago Focus 
ceramic vessel; 1 mollusca valve; and 1 lot of red soil identified as 
part of the burial pit liner along with fragmentary shell-tempered 
ceramic sherds, fragmentary animal bones, shell fragments, and a small 
prehistoric lithic core. Based on associated funerary objects recovered 
from the site, the burials date from the Lake Winnebago phase of the 
Oneota culture (ca. A.D. 1400-1500).

Determinations Made by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department 
of Anthropology

    Officials of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of 
Anthropology have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice are Native American based on their examination by a 
physical anthropologist, their recovery from a known archeological 
site, and their documented provenience in field records.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of five individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the six objects 
described in this notice 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.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and associated funerary objects and any present-day 
Indian tribe.
     According to final judgments of the Indian Claims 
Commission or the Court of Federal Claims, the land from which the 
Native American human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed is the aboriginal land of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; and 
the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land

[[Page 27911]]

from which the Native American human remains and associated funerary 
objects were removed is the aboriginal land of the Ho-Chunk Nation of 
Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; Stockbridge Munsee 
Community, Wisconsin; and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains and associated funerary objects may be to the Ho-Chunk 
Nation of Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; Stockbridge 
Munsee Community, Wisconsin; and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    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 associated funerary objects should submit a 
written request with information in support of the request to Sissel 
Schroeder, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Anthropology, 
1180 Observatory Drive, 5240 Social Sciences Building, Madison, WI 
53706, telephone (608) 262-0317, email sschroeder2@wisc.edu, by June 
16, 2014. After that date, if no additional requestors have come 
forward, transfer of control of the human remains and associated 
funerary objects to the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Menominee Indian 
Tribe of Wisconsin; Stockbridge Munsee Community, Wisconsin; and the 
Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska may proceed.
    The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Anthropology is
