Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: History Colorado, in consultation with the appropriate Indian tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations, has determined that the cultural items listed in this notice meet the definition of unassociated funerary objects.

ADDRESSES: Sheila Goff, 1200 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203, telephone (303) 866– 4531, email sheila.goff@state.co.us. 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 control of History Colorado that meet the definition of unassociated funerary objects, under 25 U.S.C. 3001. 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 cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. In or about 1915, private citizens removed three cultural items from a Ute grave located near the former White River Indian Agency, CO. They were donated to the museum in 1927. The three unassociated funerary objects are one set of thin, undecorated copper bracelets, one leather belt decorated with copper studs, and one rifle fragment. The rifle is of the type used in the early 1870s. The human remains were never in the possession of History Colorado. Geographical evidence, burial context, and museum records support affiliation with the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah & Ouray Reservation, Utah. The three northern Ute bands once living at the White River Indian Agency were removed from Colorado in 1880 and are now part of the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah & Ouray Reservation, Utah. Determinations Made by History Colorado Officials of the History Colorado have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the three cultural items described above PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21899 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 Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah & Ouray Reservation, 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 these cultural items should submit a written request with information in support of the claim to Sheila Goff, 1200 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203, telephone (303) 866–4531, email sheila.goff@state.co.us, by May 13, 2016. After that date, if no additional claimants have come forward, transfer of control of the unassociated funerary objects to the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah & Ouray Reservation, Utah may proceed. History Colorado is responsible for notifying the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Indian Reservation, Colorado; the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah & Ouray Reservation, Utah and the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah that this notice has been published.
