Determinations Made by the San Francisco State University NAGPRA 
Program

    Officials of the San Francisco State University NAGPRA Program have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 1,795 individual and

by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a 
specific burial site of a Native American individual.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the 
unassociated funerary objects and Redding Rancheria, California.

Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim 
these cultural items should submit a written request with information
