Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Office of the State Archaeologist Bioarchaeology Program professional staff in consultation with the Native American Heritage Commission, representatives of the Tejon Indian Tribe; the Tule River Indian Tribe of the Tule River Reservation, California; and the Kern Valley Indian Community, a nonfederally recognized Indian group. History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from an unspecified mound site in California. At some point, the human remains, which were identified as ‘‘taken from mound of Kawai tribe,’’ were donated to the Ham House Museum in Dubuque, IA. These human remains were transferred to the Office of the State Archaeologist Bioarchaeology Program in 1986. The human remains were identified as a young adult male (Burial Project 655). No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remains are attributed to the Kawaiisu, based on collection evidence. The Kawai, also known as the Kawaiisu or Kaweah, occupied Eastern California in the vicinity of the Tehachapi Mountains. When the original Tule River Reservation was established in 1856, the Kawaiisu were among the tribes represented. Ethnohistorically, Kawaiisu is the name of a population that encompasses thre, now separate, present-day communities: The Tejon Indian Tribe, the Tule River Indian Tribe, and the Kern Valley Indian Community, a non-Federally recognized Indian group.

Meigs from an unknown mound site in Wayne County, MI. According to museum and archival documents, the human remains were discovered in the immediate vicinity of Detroit and sent to Samuel G. Morton for inclusion in his collection of human crania from around the world prior to 1846. The human remains are represented by a cranium (no mandible) of a single adult female 35–45 years of age and a cranium (no mandible) of a probable male 30–40 years of age. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date prior to 1839, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed by Dr. George Mendenhall from an unknown site in Cuyahoga County, OH, and were sent to Samuel G.

According to museum and archival documents, the human remains were discovered near Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, OH. The human remains are represented by a cranium (no mandible) of a single female 35–45 years of age. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date prior to 1839, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed by Dr. Sturum from an unknown location near Detroit, Wayne County, MI. After his death, the human remains came into possession of the executor of Sturum’s estate and were sent to Samuel G. Morton for inclusion in his collection of human crania from around the world prior to 1846. The human remains are represented by a cranium and mandible of a male, 50+ years of age. Museum and archival documents identified this individual as a ‘‘chief, who was slain in a broil with his son-in-law.’’ No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Dr. Morton published his collection in several catalogues (1839, 1840, and 1849).

Literature from the museum, collectors, and publications indicate that the four sets of human remains date to the Historic Period. The human remains have been identified as Native American based on specific cultural and geographic attribution in the museum records. Collector records, museum documentation and published sources identify the human remains above as Wyandot (Huron). Scholarly publications and land cession records indicate that the areas from which the human remains were removed are within the traditional aboriginal territory of the Wyandot (Huron) Indians and many known historic Wyandot (Huron) occupation sites within these areas have been identified.

The item was donated to the Muskegon County Museum, now known as the Lakeshore Museum Center. A statement provided by the donor asserting that the mano and metate set was collected from the vicinity of the Mission San Xavier, in a burial area, was affirmed in consultation with the Tohono O’Odham Nation of Arizona. The Tohono O’Odham Nation has a cultural affiliation with the mano and metate set based upon geographical, historical, and contextual information, and has requested the return of this unassociated funerary object.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1844, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals 
were removed by Lt. Montgomery C. Meigs from an unknown mound site in 
Wayne County, MI. According to museum and archival documents, the human 
remains were discovered in the immediate vicinity of Detroit and sent 
to Samuel G. Morton for inclusion in his collection of human crania 
from around the world prior to 1846. The human remains are represented 
by a cranium (no mandible) of a single adult female 35-45 years of age 
and a cranium (no mandible) of a probable male 30-40 years of age. No 
known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    At an unknown date prior to 1839, human remains representing, at 
minimum, one individual were removed by Dr. George Mendenhall from an 
unknown site in Cuyahoga County, OH, and were sent to Samuel G. Morton 
for inclusion in his collection of human crania from around the world 
prior to 1846. According to museum and archival documents, the human 
remains were discovered near Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, OH. The human 
remains are represented by a cranium (no mandible) of a single female 
35-45 years of age. No known individuals were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    At an unknown date prior to 1839, human remains representing, at 
minimum, one individual were removed by Dr. Sturum from an unknown 
location near Detroit, Wayne County, MI. After his death, the human 
remains came into possession of the executor of Sturum's estate and 
were sent to Samuel G. Morton for inclusion in his collection of human 
crania from around the world prior to 1846. The human remains are 
represented by a cranium and mandible of a male, 50+ years of age. 
Museum and archival documents identified this individual as a ``chief, 
who was slain in a broil with his son-in-law.'' No known individuals 
were identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    Dr. Morton published his collection in several catalogues (1839, 
1840, and 1849). In 1853, Dr. Morton's collection, including all the 
human remains described above, were purchased from Dr. Morton's estate 
and formally presented to the Academy of Natural Sciences. In 1966, Dr. 
Morton's collection was loaned to the University of Pennsylvania Museum 
of Archaeology and Anthropology. In 1997, the collection was formally 
gifted to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and 
Anthropology.
    Literature from the museum, collectors, and publications indicate 
that the four sets of human remains date to the Historic Period. The 
human remains have been identified as Native American based on specific 
cultural and geographic attribution in the museum records. Collector 
records, museum documentation and published sources identify the human

cession records indicate that the areas from which the human remains 
were removed are within the traditional aboriginal territory of the 
Wyandot (Huron) Indians and many known historic Wyandot (Huron) 
occupation sites within these areas have been identified.

Determinations Made by the University of Pennsylvania Museum of 
Archaeology and Anthropology

    Officials of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology 
and Anthropology have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of four individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     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 Wyandotte Nation.

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 should submit a 
written request with information in support of the request to Dr. 
Julian Siggers, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and 
Anthropology, 3260 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, telephone
