Baerreis, former faculty member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison). The Burton site is likely directly associated with or a part of the Mendota Mounds site. Burials were previously reported at this site and surrounding sites, but only human remains from Baerreis’ 1951 excavations are curated at UW-Madison. The human remains are fragmentary or partially complete and include two infants; fragmentary remains of two children; one late adolescent/young adult; one adult; one mid-old age adult; two mid-age adults of probably male sex; and one old-age adult. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The site dates from the Middle to Late Woodland Periods (ca. A.D. 100–1050), based on the conical and effigy mounds, as well as diagnostic artifacts found in portions of the site. Between 1953 and 1955, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Dietz site, in Dane County, WI, by David A. Baerreis and Robert Nero in response to the expansion of the City of Madison onto farmland property with known prehistoric occupation. The site included storage pits and effigy mounds. The burial was located on a ridge near the storage pits, rather than in the vicinity of the mounds. It contained the fragmentary human remains of one adult. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The site dates from the Late Woodland Period (ca. A.D. 750–1050). In 1947, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed from the Frost Woods site in Dane County, WI, by David A. Baerreis, during salvage excavations at a conical mound that was in danger of being demolished due to residential development. The human remains are fragmentary, and include two individuals of indeterminate age and sex. No known individual were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The site dates from the Late Woodland Period (ca. A.D. 750–1050), based on diagnostic triangular projectile points found at the site. At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unknown site near Lake Kegonsa in Dane County, WI. No other information VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:18 May 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 on the excavation is available. The human remains include a nearly complete skeleton of a mid-old age adult male. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Between 1948 and 1949, human remains representing, at minimum, 29 individuals were removed from the Outlet site, in Dane County, WI, by A. H. Whiteford (Beloit College, Wisconsin Archeological Survey) and David A. Baerreis. In August 1948, Whiteford excavated Mounds 1 and 3 as a salvage operation during road construction. He removed a large rectangular pit burial presumably from Mound 1 containing 13 individuals, all of whom had been interred in an extended position. Later in 1948, students from UW-Madison undertook small-scale excavations at Mound 2 and removed the human remains of one individual. In the summer of 1949, Baerreis excavated 12 individuals from Mounds 4 and 5. From Mound 4, three burials were excavated, each with one individual. From Mound 5, three burials were excavated; Burial 1 and 2 each contained one individual, and Burial 3 contained seven individuals. Two additional individuals were excavated from other contexts of the site, including one individual from Test Pit B, Burial 2, and one individual from Burial 1, Feature 2. A remaining individual was removed from either Mound 3 or 4; it is unclear in which mound this specific individual was removed because of discrepancies between the field notes. Many of the human remains are fragmented; some exhibit signs of cremation. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is a large leafshaped biface with corner notches made of Hixton Silicified Sandstone found with Mound 5, Burial 3, which included the remains of seven individuals. The site is associated with the Wisconsin Hopewell Culture, and the burial component of the site dates from the Middle Woodland Period (ca. A.D. 100– 400). In 1974, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals were removed from the Rosenbaum Rockshelter site, in Dane County, WI, by James Stoltman, former faculty member of UW-Madison. At the time of removal, the burial already had been highly disturbed. The human remains include one infant and two adults. No known individuals were identified. The five associated funerary objects are four triangular projectile points and one portion of an Aztalan Collared ceramic vessel. The site contains multiple components, but the human remains date to the Late Woodland Period (ca. PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 A.D. 750–1050), based on the associated funerary objects.

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.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1951, human remains representing, at minimum, 10 individuals 
were removed from the Burton site, in Dane County, WI, by David A. 
Baerreis, former faculty member of the University of Wisconsin-Madison 
(UW-Madison). The Burton site is likely directly associated with or a 
part of the Mendota Mounds site. Burials were previously reported at 
this site and surrounding sites, but only human remains from Baerreis' 
1951 excavations are curated at UW-Madison. The human remains are 
fragmentary or partially complete and include two infants; fragmentary 
remains of two children; one late adolescent/young adult; one adult; 
one mid-old age adult; two mid-age adults of probably male sex; and one 
old-age adult. No known individuals were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present. The site dates from the Middle to Late 
Woodland Periods (ca. A.D. 100-1050), based on the conical and effigy 
mounds, as well as diagnostic artifacts found in portions of the site.
    Between 1953 and 1955, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the Dietz site, in Dane County, WI, by 
David A. Baerreis and Robert Nero in response to the expansion of the 
City of Madison onto farmland property with known prehistoric 
occupation. The site included storage pits and effigy mounds. The 
burial was located on a ridge near the storage pits, rather than in the 
vicinity of the mounds. It contained the fragmentary human remains of 
one adult. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present. The site dates from the Late Woodland Period (ca. 
A.D. 750-1050).
    In 1947, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals 
were removed from the Frost Woods site in Dane County, WI, by David A. 
Baerreis, during salvage excavations at a conical mound that was in 
danger of being demolished due to residential development. The human 
remains are fragmentary, and include two individuals of indeterminate 
age and sex. No known individual were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present. The site dates from the Late Woodland 
Period (ca. A.D. 750-1050), based on diagnostic triangular projectile 
points found at the site.
    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from an unknown site near Lake Kegonsa in Dane 
County, WI. No other information on the excavation is available. The 
human remains include a nearly complete skeleton of a mid-old age adult 
male. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present.
    Between 1948 and 1949, human remains representing, at minimum, 29 
individuals were removed from the Outlet site, in Dane County, WI, by 
A. H. Whiteford (Beloit College, Wisconsin Archeological Survey) and 
David A. Baerreis. In August 1948, Whiteford excavated Mounds 1 and 3 
as a salvage operation during road construction. He removed a large 
rectangular pit burial presumably from Mound 1 containing 13 
individuals, all of whom had been interred in an extended position. 
Later in 1948, students from UW-Madison undertook small-scale 
excavations at Mound 2 and removed the human remains of one individual. 
In the summer of 1949, Baerreis excavated 12 individuals from Mounds 4 
and 5. From Mound 4, three burials were excavated, each with one 
individual. From Mound 5, three burials were excavated; Burial 1 and 2 
each contained one individual, and Burial 3 contained seven 
individuals. Two additional individuals were excavated from other 
contexts of the site, including one individual from Test Pit B, Burial 
2, and one individual from Burial 1, Feature 2. A remaining individual 
was removed from either Mound 3 or 4; it is unclear in which mound this 
specific individual was removed because of discrepancies between the 
field notes. Many of the human remains are fragmented; some exhibit 
signs of cremation. No known individuals were identified. The one 
associated funerary object is a large leaf-shaped biface with corner 
notches made of Hixton Silicified Sandstone found with Mound 5, Burial 
3, which included the remains of seven individuals. The site is 
associated with the Wisconsin Hopewell Culture, and the burial 
component of the site dates from the Middle Woodland Period (ca. A.D. 
100-400).
    In 1974, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals 
were removed from the Rosenbaum Rockshelter site, in Dane County, WI, 
by James Stoltman, former faculty member of UW-Madison. At the time of 
removal, the burial already had been highly disturbed. The human 
remains include one infant and two adults. No known individuals were 
identified. The five associated funerary objects are four triangular 
projectile points and one portion of an Aztalan Collared ceramic 
vessel. The site contains multiple components, but the human remains 
date to the Late Woodland Period (ca. A.D. 750-1050), based on the 
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 known archeological sites, 
their well-documented provenience in the field records, and associated 
radiocarbon dates from portions of the sites.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 46 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3)(A), the 6 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 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 
53706, telephone (608)

[[Page 27921]]

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 and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska may 
proceed.
