Evidence of head binding circumstantially agrees with the known Native American context of this excavation. All of Waring’s excavations took place in the Southeastern United States, with the majority in eastern Georgia. Geographic evidence suggests these human remains are either Creek or Cherokee. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Between 1970 and 1980, human remains representing, at minimum, eight individuals were removed from site 40GN9 in Greene County, TN. Site 40GN9, a Middle Qualla site, was excavated by an unknown person, and transferred on an unknown date to Georgia State University. Geographic evidence suggests these human remains to be Cherokee, and likely from the town of Canasoga or Canasahaqui. These human remains are determined to be Native American based on the cultural and geographic documentation. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In March of 1971, human remains representing, at minimum, six individuals were removed from the Altamaha River basin, McIntosh County, GA. These human remains were removed by the late Dr. Wharton of the GSU Biology department, and received into custody at Georgia State University. The human remains were identified by Dr. Wharton as Native American. Geographical and archeological evidence suggests that these human remains are Native American, and likely Creek or Yamassee. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects were present. Determinations Made by Georgia State University Officials of Georgia State University have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 23 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 Cherokee Nation; the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians; The Muscogee (Creek) Nation; and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Jun 27, 2016 Jkt 238001 of these human remains should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Dr. Frank Williams, Department of Anthropology, Georgia State University, P.O. Box 3998, Atlanta, GA 30302–3998, telephone (404) 413–5154, email frankwilliams@ gsu.edu, by July 28, 2016. After that date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the human remains to the Cherokee Nation, Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Muscogee (Creek) Nation, and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma may proceed. Georgia State University is responsible for notifying The Consulted and Invited Tribes that this notice has been published. Dated: June 13, 2016. Melanie O’Brien, Manager, National NAGPRA Program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains under the control of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, Ganado, AZ. The human remains were removed from Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, Apache County, AZ. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3) and 43 CFR 10.11(d). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the Superintendent, Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site. This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals reported in two previously published notices: Notice of Inventory Completion (79 FR 43776– 43778, July 28, 2014); and corrected Notice of Inventory Completion (80 FR 59181–59182, October 1, 2015). This notice replaces both the original Notice of Inventory Completion of July 28, 2014 and the corrected Notice of Inventory Completion of October 1, 2015. After the October 2015 notice correction was published, officials of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site received additional information indicating that the likely removal date of one individual was incorrect, and is, in fact, unknown. Furthermore, officials cannot reasonably determine that the individual had likely been removed from within the boundaries of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site. Therefore, the determination that the land from which the remains were removed was tribal land at the time of removal cannot be supported and this one individual has been removed from the notice.
