Download as PDF 68040 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 191 / Monday, October 3, 2016 / Notices sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Morton in Philadelphia for inclusion in his collection of human crania from around the world. The human remains are those of a single male individual estimated to be 60+ years old and are represented by a cranium. The condition of the remains suggests they were not buried. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At this time, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia provided storage space for much of Dr. Morton’s collections, including these human remains, until his death in 1851. In 1853, Dr. Morton’s collection, including all of the 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. Museum documentation, collector records and anthropological literature indicate that the two sets of human remains date to the Historic Period. The human remains have been identified as Native American based on the specific cultural and geographic attributions in the museum records. Collector’s records, museum documentation and published historical sources identify the human remains above as Potawatomi. Scholarly ethno-historic and anthropological publications and land cession records indicate that the geographic location is consistent with the known historical territory of the Potawatomi. Determinations made by the {Museum or Federal Agency} 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 two 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 the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Oklahoma; Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; Hannahville Indian Community, Michigan; Match-e-be-nash-she-wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians of Michigan; Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi, Michigan (previously listed as the Huron Potawatomi, Inc.); VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Sep 30, 2016 Jkt 241001 Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation (previously listed as Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation, Kansas); Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, Michigan and Indiana.
