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. Determinations Made by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Department of Anthropology Officials of the UNLV Department of Anthropology 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(3)(A), the four objects described in this notice are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony. • 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 associated funerary objects and the Alturas Indian Rancheria, California; Arapaho Tribe of the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming; Big Pine Paiute Tribe of the Owens Valley (previously listed as the Big Pine Band of Owens Valley Paiute Shoshone Indians of the Big Pine Reservation, California); Bishop Paiute Tribe (previously listed as the PaiuteShoshone Indians of the Bishop Community of the Bishop Colony, California); Bridgeport Indian Colony (previously listed as the Bridgeport Paiute Indian Colony of California); Buena Vista Rancheria of the Me-Wuk Indians of California; Cedarville Rancheria, California; Chemehuevi Indian Tribe of the Chemehuevi Reservation, California; Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation, E:\FR\FM\18JNN1.SGM 18JNN1
