History and Description of the Cultural Items On an unknown date in 1902, two cultural items were removed from the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe in Mahnomen, Clearwater and Becker Counties, MN. In 1902, William Wynkoop Smith collected the cultural items during his visit to the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. The items remained in the Smith home in Saint Cloud, MN and later Cold Spring, MN. In 1982, Smith donated the items to the museum. The two sacred objects are ceremonial clubs. When the items were donated to the museum in 1982, the Curator identified them as Anishinaabe. Further research into beadwork and design confirm the items are of Anishinaabe origin. At an unknown date between 1930 and 1982, three cultural items were removed from the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe in Mahnomen, Clearwater and Becker Counties, MN. The three sacred objects are one drum, one rattle and one headband. The drum was owned by Charlotte Fineday Broker, a member of the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe who lived with the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe her entire life. Broker died in 1951 and her daughter-in-law Martha Aspinwall Broker, also a member of the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, acquired the item. Martha married Charlotte’s son Robert in 1918, moved to Royalton, MN by 1930 and St. Cloud, MN by 1943. It is unclear when, between 1930 and 1982, the three sacred objects left the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. In 1982, Martha Broker donated all three items to the museum. Determinations Made by the Stearns History Museum Officials of the Stearns History Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(C), the 5 cultural items described above are specific ceremonial objects needed by traditional Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by their present-day adherents. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71763 between the sacred objects and White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    On an unknown date in 1902, two cultural items were removed from 
the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe in Mahnomen, 
Clearwater and Becker Counties, MN. In 1902, William Wynkoop Smith 
collected the cultural items during his visit to the White Earth Band 
of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. The items remained in the Smith home 
in Saint Cloud, MN and later Cold Spring, MN. In 1982, Smith donated 
the items to the museum. The two sacred objects are ceremonial clubs. 
When the items were donated to the museum in 1982, the Curator 
identified them as Anishinaabe. Further research into beadwork and 
design confirm the items are of Anishinaabe origin.
    At an unknown date between 1930 and 1982, three cultural items were 
removed from the White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe in 
Mahnomen, Clearwater and Becker Counties, MN. The three sacred objects 
are one drum, one rattle and one headband. The drum was owned by 
Charlotte Fineday Broker, a member of the White Earth Band of the 
Minnesota Chippewa Tribe who lived with the White Earth Band of the 
Minnesota Chippewa Tribe her entire life. Broker died in 1951 and her 
daughter-in-law Martha Aspinwall Broker, also a member of the White 
Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, acquired the item. Martha 
married Charlotte's son Robert in 1918, moved to Royalton, MN by 1930 
and St. Cloud, MN by 1943. It is unclear when, between 1930 and 1982, 
the three sacred objects left the White Earth Band of the Minnesota 
Chippewa Tribe. In 1982, Martha Broker donated all three items to the 
museum.

Determinations Made by the Stearns History Museum

    Officials of the Stearns History Museum have determined that:

Native American religions by their present-day adherents.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the sacred 
objects and White Earth Band of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.

Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim
