History and Description of the Remains

    In 1991, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from Pickerel Island (47-VI-0197) in Vilas County, WI. The 
human remains are from multiple discoveries and excavations but 
collectively represent one adult male. They were originally found 
eroding out of a slope caused by ice expansion on the northwestern 
portion of the island in 1991 by the President of the Big St. Germain 
Lake Home Owners Association. In 1992, the WHS in conjunction with the 
Wisconsin Valley Improvement Company, the Mississippi Valley 
Archaeology Center, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources 
excavated the rest of the burial, which they determined to be in a 
secondary burial context. The human remains were then taken to the 
Wisconsin Historical Society that same year. No known individuals were 
identified. No associated funerary objects are present.

group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and any present-day Indian Tribe.
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains were removed 
is the aboriginal land of the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe

(hereafter referred to as The Aboriginal Land Tribes).
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains may be to The Aboriginal Land Tribes.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any Indian Tribe or Native Hawaiian organization 
not identified in this notice that wish to request transfer of control
