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 28258 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 117 / Monday, June 18, 2018 / Notices (A.D. 800–1600). Archeological evidence suggests a cultural continuity through these periods. Archeological and historical evidence indicate that Caddoan peoples occupied the Ouachita Mountains and southwestern Arkansas during both time periods. The presentday descendants of the Caddo are members of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma. Determinations Made by the University of Arkansas Museum Collections Officials of the University of Arkansas Museum Collections have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 55 individuals of Native American ancestry. • 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 the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma.

Consultation

    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.

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

[[Page 28258]]

(A.D. 800-1600). Archeological evidence suggests a cultural continuity 
through these periods. Archeological and historical evidence indicate 
that Caddoan peoples occupied the Ouachita Mountains and southwestern 
Arkansas during both time periods. The present-day descendants of the 
Caddo are members of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma.

Determinations Made by the University of Arkansas Museum Collections

determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 55 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of
