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).

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 should submit a written request to the University of Arkansas Museum Collections. If no additional requestors come forward, transfer of control of the human remains to the lineal descendants, Indian Tribes, or Native Hawaiian organizations stated in this notice may proceed. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the University of Arkansas Museum Collections professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma. PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28257 History and Description of the Remains Between 1976 and 1978, human remains representing, at minimum, 47 individuals were removed from Roden Site (34MC215) in McCurtain, OK, by the Museum of the Red River, Gregory Perino, and Lester Roden. At a date prior to 1981, the human remains were sent to the University of Arkansas for bioarcheological analysis and subsequently, they were donated to University of Arkansas Museum Collections by Jerome Rose. The human remains consist of 13 adult males, 12 adult females, nine children, four infants, and nine adults of unknown sex (2004–4–(1–44), 2004–4–10–1, 2 & 3, 2004–4–22–1, 2). No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The Roden site is located on an alluvial terrace of the Red River in southeastern Oklahoma. According to Perino, excavations and radiocarbon dates strongly correlate with a Caddo presence stretching from A.D. 1300 to 1650, which is described as the McCurtain Phase. This date can be split into two periods of intense use; the first being approximately A.D. 1300 and the second occurring between A.D.1510– 1620. The human remains are associated with the second phase. Descendants of the Caddo are members of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma. On an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, seven individuals were removed from the Bowman/Wallace site (3LR50), Little River County, AR, by unknown persons. The human remains were donated to the University of Arkansas Anthropology Department at an unknown date. In 2006, they were transferred to the University of Arkansas Museum Collections. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. On an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Georgia Lake site (3OU112), Ouachita County, AR, by unknown persons. The human remains were donated to the University of Arkansas Anthropology Department at an unknown date. In 2006, they were transferred to the University of Arkansas Museum Collections. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on the geographic region, diagnostic artifacts reported at the sites, site organization, and methods of interment, the human remains removed from burials at the two sites described above date to the Fourche Maline period (A.D. 500–800) and/or Caddoan period E:\FR\FM\18JNN1.SGM 18JNN1
