Accordingly, Courts of Indian Offenses exercise jurisdiction under 25 CFR 11.

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 U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs and in the physical custody of the Burke Museum. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Clallam County, WA. 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 and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Burke Museum professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Makah Indian Tribe of the Makah Indian Reservation. History and Description of the Remains In September 1963, human remains representing, at minimum, five individuals were removed from site 45– CA–26 on the Pacific Ocean Beach near Neah Bay adjacent to Makah Bay, Clallam County, WA. The site (45–CA– 26) is located within the current boundaries of the Makah Indian Reservation. In or about September 1963, Robert E. Greengo of the Thomas Burke Memorial Washington State Museum was directed to the site by Mrs. Otis Baxter who advised that the wind had been blowing material out of the cut bank. Dr. Greengo found exposed human bones and other items that had been disturbed by the action of the surf and/or wind. Dr. Greengo returned in October 1963, in the company of Mr. and Mrs. Otis Baxter and collected bones and objects from the location that turned out to be site 45–CA–26. The collection has been housed at the Burke PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23571 Museum since 1963. No known individuals were identified. The two associated funerary objects are an elk bone and a small bag of sand and crushed bone. Geographic, historic, and anthropological evidence indicates that the human remains are Native American. The site (45–CA–26) is a shell midden site located within the current boundaries of the Makah Indian Reservation. Burial of human remains in or near shell middens is consistent with Native American burial practices in the Pacific Northwest. This area was historically and prehistorically occupied by the Makah people for at least the past 4,000 years. Determinations Made by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Burke Museum Officials of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Burke Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of five individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the two 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), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and associated funerary objects and the Makah Indian Tribe of the Makah Indian Reservation. 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 and associated funerary objects should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Anna Pardo, Museum Program Manager/NAGPRA Coordinator, U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs, 12220 Sunrise Valley Drive, Room 6084, Reston, VA 20191, telephone (703) 390– 6343, email Anna.Pardo@bia.gov, by May 28, 2015. After that date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the human remains and associated funerary objects to the Makah Indian Tribe of the Makah Indian Reservation may proceed. The Bureau of Indian Affairs is responsible for notifying the Makah Indian Tribe of the Makah Indian Reservation that this notice has been published. E:\FR\FM\28APN1.SGM 28APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is seeking renewal of the 
approval for the information collection conducted under 25 CFR 
11.600(c) and 11.606(c). This information collection allows the Clerk 
of the Court of Indian Offenses to collect personal information 
necessary for a Court of Indian Offenses to issue a marriage license or 
dissolve a marriage. Courts of Indian Offenses have been established on 
certain Indian reservations under the authority vested in the Secretary 
of the Interior by 5 U.S.C. 301 and 25 U.S.C. 2, 9, and 13, which 
authorize appropriations for ``Indian judges.'' The courts provide for 
the administration of justice for Indian tribes in those areas where 
the tribes retain jurisdiction over Indians, exclusive of State 
jurisdiction, but where tribal courts have not been established to 
exercise that jurisdiction and the tribes has, by resolution or 
constitutional amendment, chosen to use the Court of Indian Offenses. 
Accordingly, Courts of Indian Offenses exercise jurisdiction under 25 
CFR 11. Domestic relations are governed by 25 CFR 11.600, which 
authorizes the Court of Indian Offenses to conduct and dissolve 
marriages. In order to obtain a marriage licenses in a Court of Indian 
Offenses, applicants must provide the six items of information listed 
in 25 CFR 11.600(c), including identifying information, such a Social 
Security number, information on previous marriage, relationship to the 
other applicant, and a certificate of the results of any medical 
examination required by applicable tribal ordinances or the laws of the 
State in which the Indian country under the jurisdiction of the Court 
of Indian Offenses is located. To dissolve a marriage, applicants must 
provide the six items of information listed in 25 CFR 11.606(c), 
including information on occupation and residency (to establish 
jurisdiction), information on whether the parties have lives apart for 
at least 180 days or if there is serious marital discord warranting 
dissolution, and information on the children of the marriage and 
whether the wife is pregnant (for the court to determine the 
appropriate level of support that may be required from the non-
custodial parent). (25 CFR 11.601) Two forms are used as part of this 
information collection, the Marriage License Application and the 
Dissolution of Marriage Application.
