The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Chirikof Island, Kodiak Island Borough, AK. 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 and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Alaska Region USFWS professional staff and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE St. Louis District) staff in consultation with representatives of the Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak (previously listed as the Shoonaq’ Tribe of Kodiak). History and Description of the Remains In August 1962, human remains representing, at minimum, 109 individuals were removed from multiple sites in the Southwest Anchorage of Chirikof Island, in Kodiak Island Borough, AK. The human remains represent a minimum of 61 individuals, 48 adults and 13 juveniles, from blowout A (also referred to as Site 1); a minimum of 42 individuals 30 adults and 12 juveniles, from blowout B; two adult individuals from Site 2 (also listed as the Midden Site, a secondary site at blowout B); and four adult individuals from the additional locations on the island. No known individuals were identified. The 47 associated funerary objects include 4 vials of blue European trading beads, 2 vials white European trading beads, 34 amber beads, and 1 animal bone shaft all from burial 2 at Site 2; 3 labrets, 2 jet and 1 ivory were recovered from Site 1 on Chirikof Island. Anthropologists collected exposed human remains from two areas designated blowout Area A and B. Area A was a deflating dune trending eastwest 200 meters from the shoreline of the Southwest Anchorage, and Area B is described as an area approximately 200 by 100 meters located east of Area A across a river. At the time of the collection, most of the human remains from Area B were found stacked PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 together in piles, while the skeletal material from Area A were scattered, disarticulated, and badly mixed. In addition to Areas A and B, approximately four individuals were removed from two other areas of the island; these were designated as sites 14 and 21. In the early 1960s, these human remains were held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In the late 1960s, most of the collection was loaned to Dr. Neal Tappen at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukie. In 1982, a doctoral student brought the remains to Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. In March 2016, the collection was transferred to the USACE St. Louis District for inventory and rehousing in anticipation of their return to Alaska. The human remains are believed to be interments stemming from a continuous occupation of the island between 1798 and 1870 by administrators as well as conscript and paid laborers hunting ground squirrels for the RussianAmerican Company. The preponderance of records, including lists of residents for the period 1833–1870, point to the Chirikof population as being mainly Kodiak Island Alutiiq from the southwest portion of the island including those on Tugidak and Sitkinak islands. Therefore, the Chirikof Island human remains are likely Native American and most closely affiliated with the modern Kodiak Alutiiq people. Determinations Made by the Alaska Region USFWS Officials of the Alaska Region USFWS have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 109 individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 47 objects described in this notice 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. • 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 Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak (previously listed as the Shoonaq’ Tribe of Kodiak). 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 and associated funerary objects should submit a written request with information in support of E:\FR\FM\27MRN1.SGM 27MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 57 / Monday, March 27, 2017 / Notices the request to Edward J.

    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

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Alaska 
Region USFWS professional staff and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE 
St. Louis District) staff in consultation with representatives of the 
Sun'aq Tribe of Kodiak (previously listed as the Shoonaq' Tribe of 
Kodiak).

History and Description of the Remains

    In August 1962, human remains representing, at minimum, 109 
individuals were removed from multiple sites in the Southwest Anchorage 
of Chirikof Island, in Kodiak Island Borough, AK. The human remains 
represent a minimum of 61 individuals, 48 adults and 13 juveniles, from 
blowout A (also referred to as Site 1); a minimum of 42 individuals 30 
adults and 12 juveniles, from blowout B; two adult individuals from 
Site 2 (also listed as the Midden Site, a secondary site at blowout B); 
and four adult individuals from the additional locations on the island. 
No known individuals were identified. The 47 associated funerary 
objects include 4 vials of blue European trading beads, 2 vials white 
European trading beads, 34 amber beads, and 1 animal bone shaft all 
from burial 2 at Site 2; 3 labrets, 2 jet and 1 ivory were recovered 
from Site 1 on Chirikof Island.
    Anthropologists collected exposed human remains from two areas 
designated blowout Area A and B. Area A was a deflating dune trending 
east-west 200 meters from the shoreline of the Southwest Anchorage, and 
Area B is described as an area approximately 200 by 100 meters located 
east of Area A across a river. At the time of the collection, most of 
the human remains from Area B were found stacked together in piles, 
while the skeletal material from Area A were scattered, disarticulated, 
and badly mixed. In addition to Areas A and B, approximately four 
individuals were removed from two other areas of the island; these were 
designated as sites 14 and 21.
    In the early 1960s, these human remains were held at the University 
of Wisconsin-Madison. In the late 1960s, most of the collection was 
loaned to Dr. Neal Tappen at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukie. In 
1982, a doctoral student brought the remains to Indiana University in 
Bloomington, IN. In March 2016, the collection was transferred to the 
USACE St. Louis District for inventory and rehousing in anticipation of 
their return to Alaska.
    The human remains are believed to be interments stemming from a 
continuous occupation of the island between 1798 and 1870 by

the southwest portion of the island including those on Tugidak and 
Sitkinak islands. Therefore, the Chirikof Island human remains are 
likely Native American and most closely affiliated with the modern 
Kodiak Alutiiq people.

Determinations Made by the Alaska Region USFWS

    Officials of the Alaska Region USFWS have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 109 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 47 objects described 
in this notice are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near 
individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the

shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and the Sun'aq Tribe of Kodiak (previously 
listed as the Shoonaq' Tribe of Kodiak).

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to
