    Sometime prior to 1985, a mano and metate set was removed from the 
vicinity of the Mission San Xavier, south of Tucson, AZ. 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

affiliation with the mano and metate set based upon geographical, 
historical, and contextual information, and has requested the return of 
this unassociated funerary object.
