SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate cultural items under the

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    Some time prior to 1916, two cultural items were removed from a Ute 
grave located on the Ute Mountain Ute Reservation in Colorado by an 
Indian Agent. They were first loaned to the museum in 1916 and later 
donated. The unassociated funerary objects consist of a small mass of 
partially melted glass beads and a basketry water jar. The donor 
reported that the mass of beads was among the belongings of the 
deceased that had been burned when the individual was originally 
buried. Ute people traditionally burned the belongings of the deceased 
as part of the death rite. The basketry water jar had been placed 
nearby also as part of the death rite. There is no evidence that the 
human remains came to History Colorado.

[[Page 21903]]

    Geographical evidence, burial context and practices, and museum 
records support affiliation with and the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of 
the Southern Ute Indian Reservation and Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute 
Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.

Determinations Made by History Colorado

    Officials of the History Colorado have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the two cultural items 
described above 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 and are believed, 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 the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the 
Southern Ute Indian Reservation and the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute 
Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

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