History and Description of the Remains

    In 1961, human remains representing, at minimum, 15 individuals 
were removed from the Pistol River site, 35CU61, in Curry County, OR, a 
location of the aboriginal village site of Chetlessentun, during 
legally authorized excavations by archeologists from the University of 
Oregon. No known individuals were identified. The 21 associated 
funerary objects include three projectile points, four projectile point 
fragments, one drill fragment, one worked flake, one worked bone, one 
worked tine, one spoon bowl, 2 glass beads, one piece of glass, one 
piece of wood, and 5 chipped stone flakes.
    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the Raymonds Dune site, 35CU62, about 0.4 
km north of Chetlessentun, in Curry County, OR, by a private 
individual. The human remains were donated to the Museum and 
accessioned in 1947. No known individual was identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    In 1942, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual, 
were removed by the private individual referenced above from a location 
described in donor records as ``Pistol River Dune,'' and ``on the slope 
75' to 100' east of the central group of shell heaps.'' No further 
information is present. The location is assumed to be in the vicinity 
of the above two sites. The human remains were donated to the Museum 
and accessioned in 1947. No

known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    Based on archeological context, the 17 individuals described above 
are determined to be Native American. Historical documents, 
ethnographic sources, and oral history indicate occupation of 
Chetlessentun (35CU61) by the Tututni people until 1856. Burial-
associated artifacts and radiocarbon dates from archeological 
associations support a late pre-contact and early post-contact age of 
the burials from 35CU61. Site 35CU62 was occupied about 3200 years ago, 
based on radiocarbon-dated house remains and associated projectile 
points styles.
    Based on provenience, the Native American human remains are 
reasonably believed to be affiliated with the Coquille Indian Tribe and 
the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, Oregon.
    Determinations made by the University of Oregon Museum of Natural 
and Cultural History:
    Officials of the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and 
Cultural History have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 17 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 21 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 the Coquille Indian Tribe and the 
Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, Oregon.

identified in this notice that wish to request transfer of control of
