SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains and associated funerary objects under the control of the UNLV Department of Anthropology. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Indian Springs, Clark County, NV. 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. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the UNLV Department of Anthropology professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe of the Duckwater Reservation, Nevada; Paiute-Shoshone Tribe of the Fallon Reservation and Colony, Nevada; Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of the Pyramid Lake Reservation, Nevada; Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Reservation, Nevada; and Yerington Paiute Tribe of the Yerington Colony & Campbell Ranch, Nevada. History and Description of the Remains On an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from Indian Springs in Clark County, NV. The human remains, designated as AHUR 142 (also referred to as AHUR 142X), were collected by Mr. Robert Hopkins and subsequently given to Dr. Sheilagh Brooks, an anthropologist in the PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28255 Department of Anthropology at UNLV. They consist of the mostly complete mummified remains of an infant between 0 and 12 months old. No known individuals were identified. The four associated funerary objects are a necklace of tubular bone beads found around the left arm and neck, wooden sticks belonging to a cradleboard, vegetable fibers that served as matting, and a rope. The human remains were collected near the town of Indian Springs, located 45 miles north of Las Vegas. Indian Springs is within the western Paiute and Shoshone traditional occupation area. Ted Howard, Cultural Resources Director for the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Reservation, NV, has indicated that the cradle is typical of those used by Great Basin Native Americans. Archeological research confirms that the cradleboard and other funerary objects are consistent with assemblages found within the territory occupied by the western Paiute and Shoshone in the historic and preEuropean contact eras.

The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. ADDRESSES: History and Description of the Cultural Item(s) In 1930, Samuel C. Evans purchased a string of shell and stone beads in a cloth bag from Clark’s Store, San Diego County, CA. In 1996, a collection of Native American materials (RMM Accn. #A1524) from the estate of Samuel C. Evans was donated to the Riverside Municipal Museum by his son Samuel W. Evans. This donation included the string of shell and stone beads in a cloth bag. The two unassociated funerary objects have been determined to be from ˜ the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians based on cultural and historical evidence. In Kroeber’s Ethnography of the Cahuilla Indians (1908), he analyzed beads found in a burial at San Jacinto, describing them as less regular than other specimens. The string of beads in question has the characteristics of ˜ traditional Luiseno beads as utilized by the people of the Rincon Band of ˜ Luiseno Indians. Information provided during consultations documented that Clark’s store in San Diego County, CA, was within the traditional aboriginal ˜ territory of the Rincon Band of Luiseno ˜ Indians. The Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians Museum Specialist wrote ‘‘The Rincon store was located on the southwest corner of Pala Road (Highway 76) and Valley Center Road and clearly within the traditional territory of the Tribe, and in immediate proximity to its current reservation boundaries. . . . The Tribe has no doubt that the string of bead and the bag are funerary objects and came from the traditional territory ˜ of the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians’’ (9/19/2017).

    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's

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.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the UNLV 
Department of Anthropology professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe of the Duckwater 
Reservation, Nevada; Paiute-Shoshone Tribe of the Fallon Reservation 
and Colony, Nevada; Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of the Pyramid Lake 
Reservation, Nevada; Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley 
Reservation, Nevada; and Yerington Paiute Tribe of the Yerington Colony 
& Campbell Ranch, Nevada.

History and Description of the Remains

    On an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from Indian Springs in Clark County, NV. The 
human remains, designated as AHUR 142 (also referred to as AHUR 142X), 
were collected by Mr. Robert Hopkins and subsequently given to Dr. 
Sheilagh Brooks, an anthropologist in the Department of Anthropology at 
UNLV. They consist of the mostly complete mummified remains of an 
infant between 0 and 12 months old. No known individuals were 
identified. The four associated funerary objects are a necklace of 
tubular bone beads found around the left arm and neck, wooden sticks 
belonging to a cradleboard, vegetable fibers that served as matting, 
and a rope.
    The human remains were collected near the town of Indian Springs, 
located 45 miles north of Las Vegas. Indian Springs is within the 
western Paiute and Shoshone traditional occupation area. Ted Howard, 
Cultural Resources Director for the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck 
Valley Reservation, NV, has indicated that the cradle is typical of 
those used by Great Basin Native Americans. Archeological research 
confirms that the cradleboard and other funerary objects are consistent 
with assemblages found within the territory occupied by the western 
Paiute and Shoshone in the historic and pre-European contact eras.
