The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum and Fort Sill Environmental Quality Division professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Caddo Nation of Oklahoma; Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma (previously VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:04 Sep 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 listed as Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma); Comanche Nation, Oklahoma; Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Kiowa Indian Tribe of Oklahoma; The Chickasaw Nation; and the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes (Wichita, Keechi, Waco & Tawakonie), Oklahoma. History and Description of the Remains In 1966, Morgan Otis died in a car accident in California, and he was interred in the Fort Sill Post Cemetery shortly thereafter. A collection of items were recovered from the vehicle and later sent to the Fort Sill Museum where Morgan Otis was a volunteer honorary associate curator. There is no documentary evidence concerning how and when these items entered the museum’s collections. Human teeth representing, at minimum, one individual were included in the collection. Morgan Otis was the great nephew of Chief Big-Bow, a Kiowa Chief, and documentation records his ancestry as Kiowa. Historical records also indicate that he was also related to Spotted Wolf, who was Southern Arapaho. No lineal descendents have been identified. The 322 associated funerary objects consist of 311 beads of various types and colors, 1 ceramic disk, 1 metal key, 2 buttons, 2 metal tokens, 3 copper rings and 2 copper bracelets. Determinations Made by the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum Officials of the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum have determined that: • 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 322 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), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma (previously listed as Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma) and the Kiowa Indian Tribe of Oklahoma.
