SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate cultural items under the 
control of Andover Newton Theological School that meet the definition 
of objects of cultural patrimony under 25 U.S.C. 3001.
    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 cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.

History and Description of the Cultural Item

    At an unknown date, one cultural item was removed from an unknown 
location and donated to Andover Newton Theological School. It is 
unclear who donated the object to Andover Newton Theological School or 
from where it was acquired. The one object of cultural patrimony is a 
wampum belt.
    The cultural affiliation of the wampum belt was determined with 
Anthony Gonyea, Faithkeeper for the Onondaga Nation and NAGPRA 
representative. Additional consultation with representatives of the 
Onondaga Nation confirmed that the object is Haudenosaunee. 
Haudenosaunee oral history demonstrates how wampum became sacred to the 
Haudenosaunee and its cultural importance to the Onondaga Nation, one 
of the constituents of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Cultural 
traditions establish that the Onondaga Nation is the Wampum Keeper of 
the Haudenosaunee and that all wampum without a specific community 
origin should be affiliated and repatriated to the Onondaga on behalf 
of the Haudenosaunee.

Determinations Made by Andover Newton Theological School

    Officials of Andover Newton Theological School have determined 
that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(D), the one cultural item 
described above has ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural 
importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, 
rather than property owned by an individual.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the objects 
of cultural patrimony and the Onondaga Nation.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim 
this cultural item should submit a written request with information in

Onondaga Nation that this notice has been published.
