The human remains were uncovered during a DNR excavation of the site, located in Peninsula State Park on the east shore of Nicolet Bay, in preparation of a drainage project. The State Historical Society’s Burial Sites Preservation Program was notified, and it was agreed that the burial be exposed, documented, and reburied. However, some fragmentary human remains were discovered during washing and sorting of other artifacts and were misidentified as faunal bone. The limited skeletal analysis done of the human remains left in situ suggested that they were of an elderly female. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1989, human remains representing, at minimum, 22 individuals (HP.DR– 0036.1) were removed from the Circle Ridge site (47–DR–0036) in Door County, WI. The human remains were disturbed by sewer and water line construction in the Circle Ridge Subdivision. The City of Sturgeon Bay Police Department notified the State Historical Society’s Burial Sites Preservation Program staff of the disturbance, and they excavated the human remains. The human remains were determined to be those of seven adult males, five adult females, two adults of indeterminate sex, and eight children of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is a tubular copper bead (HP.DR–0036.2). In 2004, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual (HP.DR– 0043.1) were removed from the Shoemaker’s Point Mounds and Cemetery (47–DR–0043) in Door County, WI. The human remains were discovered by the landowner in sand backfill during house construction. The landowner sent the remains to the State Historical Society’s Burial Sites Preservation Program on September 23, 2004, for identification. The human remains were determined to be those of an adult female. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1991, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual (HP.DR– 0085.1) were removed from the Cave Point Park site (47–DR–0085) in Door County, WI. The human remains were exposed by a downed tree along the Lake Michigan shoreline. The manager of Cave Point Park notified the State Historical Society’s Burial Sites Preservation Program of the exposed remains. A staff archeologist collected the exposed remains and reported that much of the burial had fallen into Lake VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:04 Sep 09, 2014 Jkt 232001 Michigan. The human remains were determined to be those of an adult female. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1988, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals (HP.DR– 0113.1) were removed from the Boyer’s Bluff Cave Burial site (47–DR–0113) in Door County, WI. The human remains were discovered in a cave on Boyer’s Bluff by a rock climber, who reported the discovery to the police. The police then transferred them to the State Historical Society’s Burial Sites Preservation Program. The human remains were determined to be those of an adult male, a juvenile of indeterminate sex, and a young adult of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals (HP.DR–0457.1) were removed from the Whitefish Dunes State Park Burial site (47–DR–0457) in Door County, WI. The human remains, consisting of a cranium and a mandible, were transferred from the Door County Sheriff’s Office to the State Historical Society’s Burial Sites Office in October 1988. The human remains were determined to be those of an adult male and an adult female. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Determinations Made by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin Officials of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice are Native American based on the location and context of the burial sites, skeletal analysis, in some instances, and State Historical Society records. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 32 individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described in this notice is 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and associated funerary objects were removed is the aboriginal land of the Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin. • 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 Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. • Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the human remains and associated funerary objects may be to the Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin, and the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin.

The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska was invited to consult but did not send representatives. History and Description of the Remains In 1953, human remains representing, at minimum, 46 individuals were removed from the Reigh site in Winnebago County, WI. The Reigh site was identified decades earlier and reports of site disturbances date to the 1890s. The human remains were originally discovered when the landowner (M.C. Reigh) used heavy machinery to remove gravel from the vicinity of the site in 1953. This prompted archeological salvage excavations conducted by Hiroshi Daifuku and Warren Wittry, both of the Wisconsin Historical Society, and David Baerreis of the University of WisconsinMadison. The site was later disturbed and excavated by avocationals in 1956. The site is affiliated with the Old Copper Culture of the Middle Archaic Period (c.a.1000 B.C. to 3000 B.C.). The human remains have been housed at both the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and the UW-Madison Department of Anthropology since the time of excavation. Since there were two major institutions involved in the 1953 excavations of this site, human remains and associated funerary objects are controlled by both the UW-Madison and State Historical Society of Wisconsin. The vast majority of the human remains are controlled by UW-Madison and the funerary objects by State Historical Society of Wisconsin. At the request of the Wisconsin Inter-Tribal Repatriation Committee (WITRC), the associated funerary objects have been reunited with the human remains under a loan agreement between the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and UW-Madison Department of Anthropology. Human remains recovered from the site include nearly complete, partial, PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53745 fragmentary, and cremated individuals. Many of the human remains were highly fragmentary. No known individuals were identified. There are 63 associated funerary objects.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains and 
associated funerary objects under the control of the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison Department of Anthropology, Madison, WI and State 
Historical Society of Wisconsin, Madison, WI. The human remains and 
associated funerary objects were removed from Winnebago County, WI.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) Department of Anthropology 
professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Forest 
County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; 
Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of 
Wisconsin; Sokaogon Chippewa Community, Wisconsin; and the Stockbridge 
Munsee Community of Wisconsin. The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska was 
invited to consult but did not send representatives.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1953, human remains representing, at minimum, 46 individuals 
were removed from the Reigh site in Winnebago County, WI. The Reigh 
site was identified decades earlier and reports of site disturbances 
date to the 1890s. The human remains were originally discovered when 
the landowner (M.C. Reigh) used heavy machinery to remove gravel from 
the vicinity of the site in 1953. This prompted archeological salvage 
excavations conducted by Hiroshi Daifuku and Warren Wittry, both of the 
Wisconsin Historical Society, and David Baerreis of the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison. The site was later disturbed and excavated by 
avocationals in 1956. The site is affiliated with the Old Copper 
Culture of the Middle Archaic Period (c.a.1000 B.C. to 3000 B.C.). The 
human remains have been housed at both the State Historical Society of 
Wisconsin and the UW-Madison Department of Anthropology since the time 
of excavation.
    Since there were two major institutions involved in the 1953 
excavations of this site, human remains and associated funerary objects 
are controlled by both the UW-Madison and State Historical Society of 
Wisconsin. The vast majority of the human remains are controlled by UW-
Madison and the funerary objects by State Historical Society of 
Wisconsin. At the request of the Wisconsin Inter-Tribal Repatriation 
Committee (WITRC), the associated funerary objects have been reunited 
with the human remains under a loan agreement between the State 
Historical Society of Wisconsin and UW-Madison Department of 
Anthropology.
    Human remains recovered from the site include nearly complete, 
partial, fragmentary, and cremated individuals. Many of the human 
remains were highly fragmentary. No known individuals were identified. 
There are 63 associated funerary objects. The following are in the 
control of State Historical Society of Wisconsin: 1 Side-notched knife/
projectile point from Burial 4; 1 elk antler axe and 3 side-notched 
projectile points from Burial 5; 2 conical antler points (one of which 
is fragmentary), 2 sets of crane bills, and 1 set of headdress 
components that included twenty-three copper pieces from Burial 6; 1 
chert projectile point and 1 white chert flake from Burial 8; 1 antler 
tine from Burial 10; 1 chipped stone knife, 1 worked swan ulna, 1 group 
of antler fragments, 1 ulna of a small mammal, and 1 group of lower leg 
bones of a great horned owl from Burial 11; 1 sandal soled gorget made 
of marine conch shell, 1 set of copper beads, and 5 shell beads from 
Burial 13; 1 rolled copper projectile point fragment from Burial 18; 1 
chert projectile point from Burial 21; 1 conical copper point, 1 elk 
antler axe, 1 knife/projectile point, 3 hematite pebbles, and 2 worked 
swan humeri from Burial 23; 1 side-notched projectile point from Burial 
25; 1 conical copper point, 1 chipped stone knife/projectile point, and 
2 hematite pebbles from Burial 26; and 2 groups of fragmentary faunal 
bones. The following are in the control and possession of UW-Madison: 6 
soil matrix samples, one each from Burial 5, Burial 6, Burial 7, Burial 
9, Burial 20, and Burial 22; 2 rounded blocks of soft sandstone and 1 
portion of a tortoise shell from Burial 11; 1 lot of small shell 
fragments from Burial 10; 1 soil matrix sample, 1 lot of shell 
fragments, 1 lot of charcoal, and 1 lot of small bone fragments from 
Burial 21; 3 bags of soil matrix and charcoal from Burial 21; 2 soil 
matrix samples and 1 lot of bone fragments from Burial 26; 1 lot of

Determinations Made by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department 
of Anthropology and the Wisconsin Historical Society

    Officials of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of 
Anthropology and the State Historical Society of Wisconsin have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice are Native American based on an examination by a 
physical anthropologist and the recovery of these remains at a known 
Native American archeological site associated with prehistoric 
artifacts, recovered from a

[[Page 53746]]

documented excavation with radiocarbon dates.
     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 63 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; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; 
Stockbridge Munsee Community, 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; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; Stockbridge 
Munsee Community, 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) 262-0317, email sschroeder2@wisc.edu by October 
10, 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; Menominee Indian 
Tribe of Wisconsin; Stockbridge Munsee Community, Wisconsin; and the 
Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska may proceed.
    The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Anthropology and 
the State Historical Society of Wisconsin are responsible for notifying 
the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; 
Stockbridge Munsee Community, Wisconsin; and the Winnebago Tribe of 
Nebraska that this notice has been published.
