History and Description of the Remains

    In October 1970, human remains representing, at minimum, eight 
individuals were removed from the Radick site, in Shawano County, WI, 
by James Stoltman and Kenneth Bennett of the University of Wisconsin-
Madison (UW-Madison). Stoltman and Bennett excavated a conical mound 
located near Shawano Lake after the landowner discovered burials during 
construction on his property. The mound was originally one of three 
conicals, but when Stoltman and Bennett arrived, much of the mound had 
already been removed. The human remains are fragmentary and represent 
an adult and a child from Burial 1; a child and an adolescent from 
Burials 2 and 3; an adult, probably male, from Feature 3; an old age 
adult from Features 7 and 8; and an old age adult and a child from 
Feature 9. No known individuals were identified. The 14 associated 
funerary objects are: 1 Copper awl; 1 small prehistoric ceramic vessel 
with incised lines; 1 portion of a Madison Plain prehistoric ceramic 
vessel; 2 ceramic sherds representing a third, distinct vessel; 1 lot 
of quartz flakes; 1 sample of soil matrix; 1 large section of a Point 
Sauble Collared vessel; 1 lot of charcoal; 1 lot of charcoal, seeds, 
and soil matrix; 1 copper fragment; 1 lot of prehistoric ceramic sherds 
from a cord-roughened pot; 1 lot of acorns and charcoal; and 1 painted 
prehistoric ceramic vessel section. The site dates from the Late 
Woodland Period (ca. A.D. 1050-1150), based on the burial mounds and 
associated funerary objects.

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 well-documented provenience in the field records.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of eight individuals of 
Native American ancestry.

[[Page 27922]]

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 14 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.
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains and 
associated funerary objects were removed is the aboriginal land of the 
Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the 
Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin; Cayuga Nation; Lac Courte Oreilles 
Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau 
Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of the Lac du Flambeau 
Reservation of Wisconsin; Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior 
Chippewa Indians of Michigan; Leech Lake Band of the Minnesota Chippewa 
Tribe, Minnesota; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; Mille Lacs Band 
of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, Minnesota; Oneida Nation of New York; 
Onondaga Nation; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; Seneca Nation of Indians (previously listed as the Seneca 
Nation of New York); Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (previously listed as the 
St. Regis Band of Mohawk Indians of New York); Tonawanda Band of Seneca 
(previously listed as the Tonawanda Band of Seneca Indians of New 
York); Tuscarora Nation; and the White Earth Band of Minnesota Chippewa 
Tribe, Minnesota (hereafter referred to as ``The Tribes'').
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains and associated funerary objects may be to The Tribes.

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
