Several attempts were made to contact the Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota’s NAGPRA representative by telephone in mid-November of 1995. Also, a letter with the inventory and osteological analysis was sent to the tribe by mail on November 16, 1995.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 Jun 15, 2018 Jkt 244001 History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individuals were removed from ‘‘a mound’’ in South Dakota. A typed note stored with the skull states ‘‘Skull. Found by Rev. Edward R. Bradley, Lincoln Mass. Found in a mound in open prairie. The top of the mound was flat and twenty feet across. They were digging a cellar for a house and found other bones besides, Presented by P. Bradley.’’ Handwritten in pencil on the note ‘‘S. Dakota Yankton.’’ Marked in ink on the right and left parietal section of the skull is ‘‘48286 S. Dak,’’ and marked in ink on the frontal section of the skull is ‘‘48286 S.D.’’ No known individuals were identified. The age and exact location of the site is unknown, based on available records. No accession record or documentation of donation to the Berkshire Museum has been found. Osteological examination was performed by Ann Marie Mires of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, and a completed report was submitted to the Berkshire Museum on November 9, 1995. Based on the examination Ms. Mires was able to determine that the skull probably belonged to a female individual between 30 and 50 years of age. Biological affinity was determined ‘‘Native American or Mongoloid’’ due to a ‘‘series of morphological and metric characteristics.’’ These measurements were deemed tentative ‘‘due to the fragmentary nature of the remains,’’ and might suggest ‘‘a mixed racial ancestry for this individual, combing Caucasian and Mongoloid descent.’’ Determinations Made by the Berkshire Museum Officials of the Berkshire Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual 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 Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
Berkshire Museum professional staff in consultation with Ann Marie 
Mires of the Department of Anthropology at the University of 
Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. Several attempts were made to contact the 
Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota's NAGPRA representative by

and osteological analysis was sent to the tribe by mail on November 16, 
1995. There was no response to the letter by the Yankton Sioux Tribe of 
South Dakota at that time.

History and Description of the Remains

    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individuals were removed from ``a mound'' in South Dakota. A typed note 
stored with the skull states ``Skull. Found by Rev. Edward R. Bradley, 
Lincoln Mass. Found in a mound in open prairie. The top of the mound 
was flat and twenty feet across. They were digging a cellar for a house 
and found other bones besides, Presented by P. Bradley.'' Handwritten 
in pencil on the note ``S. Dakota Yankton.'' Marked in ink on the right 
and left parietal section of the skull is ``48286 S. Dak,'' and marked 
in ink on the frontal section of the skull is ``48286 S.D.'' No known 
individuals were identified.
    The age and exact location of the site is unknown, based on 
available records. No accession record or documentation of donation to 
the Berkshire Museum has been found. Osteological examination was 
performed by Ann Marie Mires of the Department of Anthropology at the 
University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, and a completed report was 
submitted to the Berkshire Museum on November 9, 1995. Based on the 
examination Ms. Mires was able to determine that the skull probably 
belonged to a female individual between 30 and 50 years of age. 
Biological affinity was determined ``Native American or Mongoloid'' due 
to a ``series of morphological and metric characteristics.'' These 
measurements were deemed tentative ``due to the fragmentary nature of 
the remains,'' and might suggest ``a mixed racial ancestry for this 
individual, combing Caucasian and Mongoloid descent.''

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual 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 Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.
