    At unknown dates between 1951 and 1952, Julia K. Shishkin purchased 
eight cultural items from a member of the Pueblo of Nambe in Santa Fe 
County, NM. On April 30, 1964, Mrs. Shishkin offered to sell the eight 
items to the School of American Research for two-hundred dollars. On 
May 14, 1964, the Executive Committee of the School of American 
Research (School for Advanced Research was formerly School of American 
Research until 2007) examined the eight items from the Pueblo of Nambe 
and subsequently purchased them on May 15, 1964. The eight cultural 
items are 1 large stone figure (SAR.1964-3A); 1 set of black feathers 
tied together with string (SAR.1964-3BC), which are to be attached to 
the SAR.1964-3A stone figure; 5 stone figures with leather carrying 
pouches (SAR.1964-4AB, SAR.1964-5AB, SAR.1964-6AB, SAR.1964-7AB, 
SAR.1964-8AB); and 1 small stone with rough surface on one side, and 
polished opaque surface on the other (SAR.1964-9).
    On November 15, 1993, the School of American Research, Indian Arts

another report of objects in the School's collection. On January 23, 
2012, a report of Nambe objects with photos was sent via email to the 
Pueblo of Nambe representative. Correspondence and consultation 
followed thereafter regarding the eight cultural items listed in this 
notice. The review of the School for Advanced Research's documentation, 
in addition to physical inspections by Pueblo of Nambe representatives, 
has resulted in confirmation from the Pueblo of Nambe traditional 
leaders that the eight items are of Pueblo of Nambe origin, supporting 
cultural affiliation as well as determining that the eight items are 
sacred objects. The School for Advanced Research, Indian Arts Research 
Center records, including catalog cards and other provenance 
information indicate these items to be of Pueblo of Nambe origin, 
further supporting the claim by the Pueblo of Nambe. On December 3, 
2013, the Pueblo of Nambe submitted a repatriation request from the 
Lieutenant Governor for the eight sacred objects.
