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 Department of Anthropology at Indiana University, Bloomington, IN. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from the vicinity of Point Barrow, North Slope Borough, AK. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). 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. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains and associated funerary objects was made by Indiana University professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Traditional Government and the Inupiat Community of the Arctic Slope. History and Description of the Remains Between 1921 and 1936, human remains representing, at minimum, 8 individuals were recovered from an unknown location near Point Barrow, AK. These human remains were collected by Mollie Ward Greist, a native of Indiana who lived in Barrow, AK, from 1921–1936. The human remains were transferred to the Indiana University Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology in 1956, to the Mathers Museum of World Cultures in 1972, and then to the Department of Anthropology in 1990. The 1 associated funerary object is a fragment of oil soaked wood. No known individuals were identified. Catalog information indicates the affiliation of the remains to be ‘‘Inuit’’ or ‘‘Eskimo.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The human remains were found in an area traditionally used by the Inupiat people. Accounts of Inupiat burials indicate that the human remains were placed into very shallow graves or were surface burials. Inupiat mortuary treatments also involved deceased individuals being wrapped in skins or furs and taken to a cemetery where they were placed on wood planks. Mollie Greist reported seeing hundreds of Native American skeletons lying on the ground near Point Barrow. A relationship of shared group identity can be reasonably traced between the human remains and the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Government and the Inupiat Community of the Arctic Slope based on traditional geography, archeological evidence, historical accounts, and on-going cultural traditions. Determinations Made by Indiana University Officials of the Department of Anthropology at Indiana University have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 8 individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 1 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), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Government and the Inupiat Community of the Arctic Slope.

The site is located in the Carson Sink and on land held in trust by Churchill County. In the early 1980s, the Carson Sink was subjected to years of flooding and after the water receded, a section of the Charlie Gomes site was exposed.

Burial 1A represents one set of human remains of an adult of unknown sex. Burial 1B represents one set of human remains of a young adult, 16 to 23 years. The determination of sex on the young adult is not conclusive. No known individuals were identified. The 213 associated funerary objects are 56 shell fragments, 30 faunal bone fragments, 4 lithics, 4 ground stone fragments, 2 natural or fire cracked rocks, 1 seed, 1 bottle glass fragment, 5 soil samples, 2 ochre fragments, and 108 shell beads.

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

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains and associated funerary 
objects was made by Indiana University professional staff in 
consultation with representatives of the Native Village of Barrow 
Inupiat Traditional Government and the Inupiat Community of the Arctic 
Slope.

History and Description of the Remains

    Between 1921 and 1936, human remains representing, at minimum, 8 
individuals were recovered from an unknown location near Point Barrow, 
AK. These human remains were collected by Mollie Ward Greist, a native 
of Indiana who lived in Barrow, AK, from 1921-1936. The human remains 
were transferred to the Indiana University Glenn A. Black Laboratory of 
Archaeology in 1956, to the Mathers Museum of World Cultures in 1972, 
and then to the Department of Anthropology in 1990. The 1 associated 
funerary object is a fragment of oil soaked wood. No known individuals 
were identified. Catalog information indicates the affiliation of the 
remains to be ``Inuit'' or ``Eskimo.''
    The human remains were found in an area traditionally used by the 
Inupiat people. Accounts of Inupiat burials indicate that the human 
remains were placed into very shallow graves or were surface burials. 
Inupiat mortuary treatments also involved deceased individuals being 
wrapped in skins or furs and taken to a cemetery where they were placed 
on wood planks. Mollie Greist reported seeing hundreds of Native 
American skeletons lying on the ground near Point Barrow. A 
relationship of shared group identity can be reasonably traced between 
the human remains and the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Government 
and the Inupiat Community of the Arctic Slope based on traditional 
geography, archeological evidence, historical accounts, and on-going 
cultural traditions.

Determinations Made by Indiana University

    Officials of the Department of Anthropology at Indiana University 
have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 8 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 1 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), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat 
Government and the Inupiat Community of the Arctic Slope.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to
