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 the St. Joseph Museums, Inc., St. Joseph, MO. The human remains were donated on April 27, 1928 by Mary S. McNeil. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the St. Joseph Museums, Inc. professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation. History and Description of the Remains On April 27, 1928, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were donated to the St. Joseph Museums, Inc. by Mrs. Mary S. McNeil. These human remains were identified at the time of donation as a Flathead Indian skull over forty years old. The exact location of removal of the human remains and the means by which Mrs. McNeil acquired them were not documented. Based on the original documentation, the human remains most likely were removed in the late nineteenth century. Their identification as Flathead was made by Mrs. McNeil, and/or the director of the St. Joseph Museum, Mrs. Orel Andrews, at the time of accession. Mrs. McNeil’s collection spans Native American cultures from Alaska to New Mexico, across the plains and in the American Northeast.
