The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Pima County, AZ. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3) and 43 CFR 10.11(d). 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 human remains were transferred from the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner to ASM but were not assigned an accession number. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1967, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unrecorded site, AZ AA:12:—Tucson Site 9, located on private land in Tucson, Pima County, AZ. The legally authorized excavation was conducted by ASM under the direction of James Ayres and Walter Birkby. The collection was brought to ASM but no accession number was assigned. The remains were assessed as likely Native American, based on their condition. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is an animal bone. In 1991, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unrecorded site, AZ AA:16:—ML91–0611, located on private land in Tucson, Pima County, AZ. The human remains were collected by the Tucson Police Department and assigned case number ML91–0611. Forensic anthropologists at the Human Identification Laboratory, University of Arizona determined that the human remains were prehistoric and likely Native American. The collection was then brought to ASM but was not assigned an accession number. No known individuals were identified. The eight associated funeral objects are eight stones. The absence of diagnostic artifacts and lack of known archeological contexts related to these discoveries prevents identification of an earlier group. Determinations Made by the Arizona State Museum Officials of ASM have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice are Native American based on the physical characteristics of the remains. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 3 individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 9 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:04 Sep 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 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 Tohono O’odham Nation of Arizona. • 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 Ak Chin Indian Community of the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Indian Reservation, Arizona; Gila River Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation; Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona; and Tohono O’odham Nation of Arizona. • Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the human remains and associated funerary objects may be to the Ak Chin Indian Community of the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Indian Reservation, Arizona; Gila River Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation; Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona; and Tohono O’odham Nation of Arizona.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1996, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from an unrecorded site, AZ AA:12:--Camino de la Tierra, 
in Tucson, Pima County, AZ. The remains were collected by the Pima 
County Sheriff's Department and assigned a case number. The medical

were prehistoric and likely Native American. The human remains were 
transferred from the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner to ASM 
but were not assigned an accession number. No known individuals were 
identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    In 1967, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from an unrecorded site, AZ AA:12:--Tucson Site 9, located 
on private land in Tucson, Pima County, AZ. The legally authorized 
excavation was conducted by ASM under the direction of James Ayres and 
Walter Birkby. The collection was brought to ASM but no accession 
number was assigned. The remains were assessed as likely Native 
American, based on their condition. No known individuals were 
identified. The one associated funerary object is an animal bone.
    In 1991, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from an unrecorded site, AZ AA:16:--ML91-0611, located on 
private land in Tucson, Pima County, AZ. The human remains were

brought to ASM but was not assigned an accession number. No known 
individuals were identified. The eight associated funeral objects are 
eight stones.
