Faculty and students from what was then Long Beach State College (now California State University, Long Beach) and local volunteers conducted the excavations. The human remains and associated funerary objects included in this notice were transferred to California State University, Sacramento, from California State University, Long Beach, via California State University, Fresno, during the 1990s. The human remains of ten individuals from five burial features include one infant, one child, one juvenile, and seven adults (one female, one male, and five individuals of unknown sex). The human remains of two individuals, one infant and one adult, were documented as isolated human remains during the inventory of associated funerary objects from the site. The human remains of three individuals, one infant and two adults, were found during the review of sediment samples. No known individuals were identified. The 42 associated funerary objects are 33 fragments of non-human bone, 4 pieces of baked clay, 1 piece of daub, 1 flaked stone, 1 thermally altered rock, 1 modified human bone, and 1 piece of historic metal. Based on burial patterns and artifact types, the human remains and associated funerary objects are dated to the Middle Horizon (2,500–2,000 B.P.). The establishment of a cultural chronology of the 4–SJo–17 collection relied upon the California Prehistoric Cultural Chronology and Artifact Classification System used by most regional archeologists. Multiple lines of evidence were used to determine the antiquity of this collection. Geographic, linguistic, archeological, and ethnographic evidence, as well as oral historical evidence presented at consultation, were used to determine cultural affiliation to the Eastern Miwok and Central Valley Yokuts peoples. The Eastern Miwok and Yokuts cultures of the Late Horizon (from 1,500 years ago to the European contact) are believed to have descended from the Middle Horizon cultures represented at this site, which lies on the border of the traditional territory of the Eastern Miwok and the Northern Valley Yokuts.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1967, human remains representing, at minimum, 15 individuals 
were removed from 4-SJo-17 in San Joaquin County, CA, during a salvage 
excavation project on private property. Faculty and students from what 
was then Long Beach State College (now California State University, 
Long Beach) and local volunteers conducted the excavations. The human 
remains and associated funerary objects included in this notice were 
transferred to California State University, Sacramento, from California 
State University, Long Beach, via California State University, Fresno, 
during the 1990s. The human remains of ten individuals from five burial 
features include one infant, one child, one juvenile, and seven adults 
(one female, one male, and five individuals of unknown sex). The human 
remains of two individuals, one infant and one adult, were documented 
as isolated human remains during the inventory of associated funerary 
objects from the site. The human remains of three individuals, one 
infant and two adults, were found during the review of sediment 
samples. No known individuals were identified. The 42 associated 
funerary objects are 33 fragments of non-human bone, 4 pieces of baked 
clay, 1 piece of daub, 1 flaked stone, 1 thermally altered rock, 1 
modified human bone, and 1 piece of historic metal.
    Based on burial patterns and artifact types, the human remains and 
associated funerary objects are dated to the Middle Horizon (2,500-
2,000 B.P.). The establishment of a cultural chronology of the 4-SJo-17 
collection relied upon the California Prehistoric Cultural Chronology 
and Artifact Classification System used by most regional archeologists. 
Multiple lines of evidence were used to determine the antiquity of this 
collection. Geographic, linguistic, archeological, and ethnographic 
evidence, as well as oral historical evidence presented at 
consultation, were used to determine cultural affiliation to the 
Eastern Miwok and Central Valley Yokuts peoples. The Eastern Miwok and

European contact) are believed to have descended from the Middle 
Horizon cultures represented at this site, which lies on the border of 
the traditional territory of the Eastern Miwok and the Northern Valley 
Yokuts.

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native
