Requests for information were sent out to tribes based on preliminary assessments of potential affiliation. Based on consultation with the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California, and Table Mountain Rancheria of California, the basket was determined to be part of living ceremonial traditions. Based on designs and shape it was identified as a traditional Yokuts Rattlesnake basket used in their Spring Ceremony. In addition twinned baskets such as catalog number 96.018 are identified as ‘‘Tulare bottleneck’’ or ‘‘treasure’’ baskets. The basket meets the NAGPRA definition of a sacred object, and is needed by current religious practitioners for the Rattlesnake ceremony and the Spring ceremony. In 1961, an unknown person donated one cultural item (identified as 61.46.16) to the Catalina Island Museum with no contextual information. Based on consultation with the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California, and Table Mountain Rancheria of California, the basket displays designs known as the Goose design (La-La). These designs signify that it is a cooking basket used for the Spring Ceremony. The basket meets the NAGPRA definition of a sacred object and is needed by current religious practitioners for the Spring Ceremony. The Yokuts language belongs to the Penutian language family and is divided by anthropologists into three distinct groups: The Southern Valley Yokuts, located in the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley from the lower Kings River to the Tehachapi Mountains; the Foothill Yokuts occupying the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains from Fresno River to the Kern River; and the Northern Valley Yokuts extended ‘‘from near where the San Joaquin River makes a big bend northward to a line midway between the Calaveras and Mekelumne Rivers.’’ Based on consultation with Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California, and Table Mountain Rancheria of California, catalog number 96.018 and 61.46.16 are sacred items, as defined by NAGPRA.
