A.D. 750–1100), Middle Mississippian Period (ca. A.D. 1050–1150), or Oneota Period (ca. A.D. 1150–1650), based on diagnostic artifacts recovered during the excavation.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1990, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from the Bobwhite site, in Richland County, WI, by Fred A. 
Finney and Scott B. Meyer, in advance of a construction project by the 
Soil Conservation Service. The burial pit was identified as Feature 24, 
and contained a single human molar fragment, along with associated 
objects. No known individuals were identified. The 11 associated 
funerary objects are: 2 heat-treated Raddatz side-notched points; 2 
small bifaces; 1 large biface; 4 large primary flakes; 1 copper 
bracelet; and 1 sandstone abrader. Although the site was occupied over 
many thousands of years, the diagnostic artifacts date the human 
remains from the Middle Archaic Period (ca. 2000-4000 B.C.).

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, their well-documented provenience in the field records, 
association with prehistoric artifacts, and associated radiocarbon 
dates.
     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 11 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.

[[Page 27912]]

     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.
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains were removed 
is the aboriginal land of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and the 
Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
     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.
     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 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

16, 2014. After that date, if no additional requestors have come 
forward, transfer of control of the human remains and associated 
funerary objects to Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and the Winnebago 
Tribe of Nebraska may proceed.
