This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3).

History and Description of the Cultural Items In the late 19th century, 33 cultural items were removed from an unknown location by James T. White from Point Hope, North Slope Borough, AK, and later donated to the Burke Museum by his wife in 1904. The 33 unassociated funerary objects are 1 wooden mask, 4 ground stone tools, 1 lot of earthenware fragments, 1 ivory thimble holder, 1 needle, 1 needle case, 1 comb, 1 scoop, 1 pipe, 2 pipe bowls, 1 ivory tool, 3 ground stone knives, 2 stone points, 2 bone points, 2 harpoon heads, 1 scraper blade, 4 harpoon points, 1 lance, 1 sinew rope, and 2 adzes. In the late 19th century, one unassociated funerary object was removed from Point Hope, AK. It is believed that this object was also removed by James T. White and donated to Young Naturalist Society, who then donated it to the Burke Museum in VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:20 Feb 23, 2017 Jkt 241001 1904. The one unassociated funerary object is one lot of earthenware fragments. These fragments are labeled with the same writing and are given similar numbers to the other fragments from James T. White. The objects were listed in the accession records as being removed from ‘‘old Tigarah’’ or ‘‘old Eskimo’’ graves at Point Hope. The objects are consistent with historic and prehistoric material cultural from this area and are related to the Inupiat people of the Point Hope (Tikigaq, aka Tigara) area (Damas, 1984). The modern day Inupiat descendants from Point Hope are members of the Native Village of Point Hope. Determinations Made by the Burke Museum Officials of the Burke Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 34 cultural items described above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the unassociated funerary objects and the Native Village of Point Hope. Additional Requestors and Disposition Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim these cultural items should submit a written request with information in support of the claim to Peter Lape, Burke Museum, University of Washington, Box 353010, Seattle, WA 98195, telephone (206) 685–3849, email plape@uw.edu, by March 27, 2017. After that date, if no additional claimants have come forward, transfer of control of the unassociated funerary objects to the Native Village of Point Hope may proceed. The Burke Museum is responsible for notifying the Native Village of Point Hope that this notice has been published. Dated: January 11, 2017. Melanie O’Brien, Manager, National NAGPRA Program.

The human remains were excavated from the northeast corner of the 1840s adobe while in the process of installing a four-inch wide drain pipe at a depth of 20–30 cm around the perimeter of the building. The firm that conducted the excavation initially identified all of the materials removed from the site as belonging to a medium to large unidentified mammal. Subsequently, the Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos consulted with an osteologist to confirm that all materials in its possession were non-human. In the process, eight fragments were identified as one adult human, over the age of 20, and probably a female, while a ninth fragment was identified as likely of human origin. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Archeological evidence shows that the geographical area where the site is located has seen aboriginal activity for over 11,000 years, as evidenced by the recovery of a fluted point within the viewshed. In addition, ethnographic evidence identifies the Chumash as having occupied the area. Based on evidence provided by postmortem damage, these human remains predate the 1839–1840 construction of the Dana Adobe. Determinations Made by the Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos Officials of the Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos have determined that: • 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(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, California.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Dana Adobe 
Nipomo Amigos professional staff in consultation with osteologists and 
representatives of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of 
the Santa Ynez Reservation, California, and the yak tityu tityu 
Northern Chumash Tribe, a non-federally recognized Indian group.

History and Description of the Remains

    In July 2012, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the Dana Adobe site in San Luis Obispo 
County, CA. The human remains were excavated from the northeast corner 
of the 1840s adobe while in the process of installing a four-inch wide 
drain pipe at a depth of 20-30 cm around the perimeter of the building. 
The firm that conducted the excavation initially identified all of the 
materials removed from the site as belonging to a medium to large 
unidentified mammal. Subsequently, the Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos 
consulted with an osteologist to confirm that all materials in its 
possession were non-human. In the process, eight fragments were 
identified as one adult human, over the age of 20, and probably a 
female, while a ninth fragment was identified as likely of human 
origin. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present.
    Archeological evidence shows that the geographical area where the 
site is located has seen aboriginal activity for over 11,000 years, as 
evidenced by the recovery of a fluted point within the viewshed. In 
addition, ethnographic evidence identifies the Chumash as having 
occupied the area. Based on evidence provided by postmortem damage, 
these human remains predate the 1839-1840 construction of the Dana 
Adobe.

Determinations Made by the Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos

    Officials of the Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos have determined that:
     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(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission 
Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, California.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to 
request transfer of control of these human remains should submit a 
written request with information in support of the request to Donna L. 
Gillette, Ph.D., NAGPRA Collections Manager, Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos,

email dana@danaadobe.org, by March 27, 2017. After that date, if no 
additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the 
human remains to the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the 
Santa Ynez Reservation, California, may proceed.
    The Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos is responsible for notifying the Santa 
Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, 
California, and the yak tityu tityu Northern Chumash Tribe, that this
