The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. [FR Doc. 2017–03609 Filed 2–23–17; 8:45 am] History and Description of the Cultural Items At an unknown date, six cultural items were removed from unknown areas in southern Arkansas. These cultural items were given to Southern Arkansas University at an unknown date, and donated to the Arkansas Archeological Survey in 2016. The six unassociated funerary objects are one East Incised fragmentary jar, one East Incised bowl, one Nash Neck Banded jar, one effigy jar, one plain bowl, and one Hempstead Engraved bottle (Catalog #95–440–49, 50, 52, 55, 60, 61). The pottery types are well known examples of Caddo traditional wares. East Incised and Hempstead Engraved finewares are found throughout Southwest Arkansas, along the Red River Valley in the vicinity of the Great Bend, and into adjoining corners of Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. The time spans for the types overlap, with East Incised associated with the East Phase and ranging between A.D. 1100 and 1400, Hempstead Engraved is associated with the Haley Phase as well as the East Phase and was made between about A.D. 1200 and 1450. Nash Neck Banded was made in the 15th and 16th centuries. All three types were made before European contact and during the Caddo tradition. The Caddo archeological tradition developed between A.D. 900 and 1000 in the four corners region of Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Distinctive characteristics include a dispersed residential settlement of families with a lifestyle grounded in farming and collecting wild plants and animals. The core of community life was a religious and political center with ceremonial and burial mounds, public areas for community events and rituals, and a small residential population believed to be religious and political leaders and their families. Caddo ceramics are highly distinctive with dual manufacturing traditions that produced both refined wares decorated with complex stylized incised and engraved designs and utilitarian wares with highly plastic incised, punctuated, and brushed designs that are dominated by geometric motifs. The Caddo continued to practice traditional settlement arrangements and material crafts well into the contact period. This is confirmed in part by past discoveries of distinctive Caddo ceramics and other artifacts found with European trade items in locations where French and Spanish observers BILLING CODE 4312–52–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service [NPS–WASO–NAGPRA–22597; PPWOCRADN0–PCU00RP14.R50000] Notice of Intent To Repatriate Cultural Items: Arkansas Archeological Survey, Fayetteville, AR National Park Service, Interior.

History Connection professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Delaware Nation, Oklahoma.

History and Description of the Remains

    In July 1934, construction activities relating to the installation 
of sewer and waterlines along Mulvane Street in Newcomerstown, 
Tuscarawas County, OH, uncovered human remains. Emerson F. Greenman, 
Curator of Archaeology for the Ohio History Connection investigated the

associated funerary objects. The human remains consist of a single 
individual of indeterminate age (A1427/1) along with 37 iron nails 
(A1427/2) and 15 mostly fragmentary and unmodified peach pits (A1427/
9), which are interpreted as funerary objects. This site subsequently 
was recorded as Newcomer's Town and Cemetery (33TU604).
    Newcomers Town, also known as Gekelmukpechunk, was a large Delaware 
Indian village occupied in the late 1700s. The limits of the site have 
not been established, but the human remains collected from the Mulvane 
Street location are reasonably inferred to relate to the Delaware 
Indian town and therefore these remains are considered to be culturally 
affiliated to the Delaware Nation, Oklahoma

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 52 objects described 
in this notice are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near 
the human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death 
rite or ceremony.
     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 associated funerary objects and the Delaware 
Nation, Oklahoma.

Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to
