The museum has no record of when these human remains were added to the collection or how they came to the museum. There is no additional information available about the human remains. No known individuals were identified. The human remains have been stored in the museum based on the type of bone fragment (i.e. vertebrae are stored together). Accession records indicate that some of the bone fragments are related to other bone fragments in the collection. The two associated funerary objects are one lot of pottery sherds and one bird skull. Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.16, the Secretary of the Interior may make a recommendation for a transfer of control of culturally unidentifiable human remains and associated funerary objects. In June 2016, the Lake County Discovery Museum requested that the Secretary, through the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee, recommend the proposed transfer of control of the culturally unidentifiable Native American human remains and associated funerary objects in this notice to the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, Michigan. The Review Committee, acting pursuant to its responsibility under 25 U.S.C. 3006(c)(5), considered the request at its July 2016 meeting and recommended to the Secretary that the proposed transfer of control proceed.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1970, human remains representing, at minimum, 13 individuals 
were placed in the Lake County Discovery Museum collection. The museum 
has no record of when these human remains were added to the collection 
or how they came to the museum. There is no additional information 
available about the human remains. No known individuals were 
identified. The human remains have been stored in the museum based on 
the type of bone fragment (i.e. vertebrae are stored together). 
Accession records indicate that some of the bone fragments are related 
to other bone fragments in the collection. The two associated funerary 
objects are one lot of pottery sherds and one bird skull.
    Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.16, the Secretary of the Interior may make a 
recommendation for a transfer of control of culturally unidentifiable 
human remains and associated funerary objects. In June 2016, the Lake 
County Discovery Museum requested that the Secretary, through the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee, 
recommend the proposed transfer of control of the culturally 
unidentifiable Native American human remains and associated funerary 
objects in this notice to the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa 
Indians, Michigan. The Review Committee, acting pursuant to its 
responsibility under 25 U.S.C. 3006(c)(5), considered the request at 
its July 2016 meeting and recommended to the Secretary that the 
proposed transfer of control proceed. A September 9, 2016, letter on 
behalf of the Secretary of Interior from the National Park Service 
Associate Director, Cultural Resources, Partnerships, and Science 
transmitted the Secretary's independent review and concurrence with the 
Review Committee that:
     The Lake County Discovery Museum consulted with 
appropriate Indian tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations,
     None of The Consulted and Invited Tribes objected to the 
proposed transfer of control, and
     The Lake County Discovery Museum may proceed with the 
agreed upon transfer of control of the culturally unidentifiable human 
remains and associated funerary objects to the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe 
of Chippewa Indians, Michigan.
Transfer of control is contingent on the publication of a Notice of 
Inventory Completion in the Federal Register. This notice fulfills that 
requirement.

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described

remains and associated funerary objects will be to the Sault Ste. Marie
