Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the National Museum of Health and Medicine professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska. History and Description of the Remains A single human skeleton was collected in 1872 by W.H. Dall on behalf of the Smithsonian Institution. The human remains were found in a compartment of what had been a large community house on Amaknak Island, Captain’s Bay, Unalaska, AK. The human remains were received at the Army Medical Museum (AMM) from the U.S. National Museum Smithsonian Institution on November 15, 1872, and accessioned into the AMM as PS 12937 on November 21, 1872. On August 24, 1904 by order of the AMM Curator James Carroll, the human remains were returned to the U.S. National Museum, Smithsonian Institution, except for the pathological portions of the skeleton. These portions remain to this day as PS 12937 at the National Museum of Health and Medicine (NMHM), formally known as the AMM. Accession documents relating to the collection history of these human remains were retained by the Smithsonian. Through a recent review of records in consultation with the Smithsonian Institution Repatriation Office, provenance for these remains has been reassociated. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remains consist of the spine, hips, and ribs. The remains show ankylosing spondylitis, kyphosis, and fusion of the interpubic joint. Morphological characteristics of the hips indicate male sex. The remains are those of an adult. Accession file information indicates that the individual is an Aleut male approximately 40 years of age from Amaknak Island, Captain’s Bay, Unalaska. Evidence of a male with ankylosing spondylitis and kyphosis is consistent with the biological and pathological description in the accession file documents.
