History and Description of the Remains In 1989, human remains representing, at minimum, four individuals were removed from the Island Village site (47–MN–0101) in Manitowoc County, WI. The site is located within the Kill Snake Marsh and Wildlife Area run by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). Employees of the WDNR found human remains and associated funerary objects brought to the surface by plowing. Representatives from the Wisconsin Historical Society visited the site and were given the human remains and associated funerary objects. The human remains represent four individuals, including one young adult and three juveniles. No known individuals were identified. The four associated funerary objects are 1 decorated German silver brooch or hair plate, 1 lot of five copper bracelets, 1 copper picture frame mat, and 1 lot of beads. The kinds of associated funerary objects recovered suggest a historic period date for the human remains, specifically the mid-1800s. Objects like the silver German brooch did not come into use in the Great Lakes until after the 1830s. The picture frame mat was of the type that would have been used to frame an ambrotype or daguerreotype suggesting a post-1850 date. The Island Village site was first recorded in written documents by archeologist Charles E. Brown in 1906 who stated that a Mr. Louis Falge identified the site as a Potawatomi village. Archival research conducted by the Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin, identified the location as a historic village site that was led by Potawatomi chief Chaiconda. The site was described by Falge as being occupied and under cultivation until 1864, which VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Oct 16, 2017 Jkt 244001 corresponds with the estimated age of the associated funerary objects.

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

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
Wisconsin Historical Society professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; 
Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior 
Chippewa Indians of the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; and 
the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1989, human remains representing, at minimum, four individuals 
were removed from the Island Village site (47-MN-0101) in Manitowoc 
County, WI. The site is located within the Kill Snake Marsh and 
Wildlife Area run by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources 
(WDNR). Employees of the WDNR found human remains and associated 
funerary objects brought to the surface by plowing. Representatives 
from the Wisconsin Historical Society visited the site and were given 
the human remains and associated funerary objects. The human remains 
represent four individuals, including one young adult and three 
juveniles. No known individuals were identified. The four associated 
funerary objects are 1 decorated German silver brooch or hair plate, 1 
lot of five copper bracelets, 1 copper picture frame mat, and 1 lot of 
beads.
    The kinds of associated funerary objects recovered suggest a 
historic period date for the human remains, specifically the mid-1800s. 
Objects like the silver German brooch did not come into use in the 
Great Lakes until after the 1830s. The picture frame mat was of the 
type that would have been used to frame an ambrotype or daguerreotype 
suggesting a post-1850 date. The Island Village site was first recorded 
in written documents by archeologist Charles E. Brown in 1906 who 
stated that a Mr. Louis Falge identified the site as a Potawatomi 
village. Archival research conducted by the Forest County Potawatomi 
Community, Wisconsin, identified the location as a historic village 
site that was led by Potawatomi chief Chaiconda. The site was described 
by Falge as being occupied and under cultivation until 1864, which 
corresponds with the estimated age of the associated funerary objects.

Determinations Made by the Wisconsin Historical Society

    Officials of the Wisconsin Historical Society have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of four individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the four 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 associated funerary objects and the Forest 
County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; Hannahville Indian Community, 
Michigan; Match-e-be-nash-she-wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians of 
Michigan; Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi; and the Pokagon 
Band of Potawatomi Indians, Michigan and Indiana.
