Hebard subsequently donated the human remains to the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia in 1921. In 1936, the human remains were loaned to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. In 1997, the remains were formally gifted to the University of Pennsylvania. The human remains consist of three cranial fragments (temporal, parietal, and occipital bones) of one adult male. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Museum and collector documentation indicate that the human remains have been dated to the early Historic Period. Consultation, published information, and land cessions associated with Baraga County indicate that the geographic location from which the remains were removed is aboriginal to the Chippewa tribe or people.

determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the 
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native

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

    On July 7, 1886, human remains representing, at minimum, two 
individuals were transferred from the U.S. National Museum (today the 
Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History) to the 
Army Medical Museum (today the National Museum of Health and Medicine). 
In 1880, affiliates of the U.S. National Museum removed human skeletal 
remains from Chernofski Harbor in Unalaska, AK. Original records of the 
collection are maintained by the Smithsonian Institution, and through 
coordination, we are able to determine that one cranium was removed by 
T.H. Bean and a second cranium was removed by W.H. Dall. No known 
individuals are identified in the historic records, and no associated 
funerary objects are present.
    The cranium collected by T.H. Bean was from a prehistoric Aleutian 
site at Chernofski, Unalaska, and was given Smithsonian Number 20825. 
Upon transfer to the Army Medical Museum in 1886, the cranium was 
accessioned under a second number, PS 9666. This human cranium is of a 
single adult, with extensive loss of bone and several perforations of 
the frontal and parietals.
    The cranium collected by W.H. Dall, also from a prehistoric 
Aleutian site at Chernofski, Unalaska, was given Smithsonian Number 
20842. Upon transfer to the Army Medical Museum in 1886, the cranium 
was accessioned under a second number, PS 9667. This human cranium is 
of a single adult female, with extensive hyperostosis and several 
perforations of the frontal and parietal bones.
    No information exists about the collection sites, other than both 
craniums were collected at Chernofski, Unalaska in 1880. The museum's 
consultation efforts identify one tribe that remains geographically 
affiliated with Unalaska: The Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska.

Determinations Made by the National Museum of Health and Medicine

    Officials of the National Museum of Health and Medicine have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of two individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     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 the Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or 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 should submit a 
written request with information in support of the request to Dr 
Franklin E. Damann, National Museum of Health and Medicine, 2460 Linden 
Lane, Building 2500, Silver Spring, MD 20910, telephone (301) 319-3306, 
email franklin.e.damann2.civ@mail.mil, by October 10, 2014. After that 
date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of 
control of the human remains to the Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska may 
proceed.
    The National Museum of Health and Medicine is responsible for 
notifying the Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska that this notice has been 
published.
