Tribal concerns, including impacts on Indian trust assets and potential impacts to cultural resources, will be given due consideration. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with tribes and other stakeholders that may be interested in or affected by the proposed action that the BLM is evaluating, are invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be requested by the BLM to participate in the development of the environmental analysis as a cooperating agency. The BLM will evaluate identified issues to be addressed in the plan, and will place them into one of three categories: 1. Issues to be resolved in the analysis; 2. Issues to be resolved through policy or administrative action; or 3. Issues beyond the scope of the Supplemental EIS and potential RMP amendment. The BLM will provide an explanation in the Draft Supplemental EIS as to why an issue was placed in category two or three. The public is also encouraged to help identify any management questions and concerns that should be addressed in the plan. The BLM will work collaboratively with interested parties to identify the management decisions that are best suited to local, regional, national needs, and concerns. The BLM will use an interdisciplinary approach to develop the Supplemental EIS and, if necessary, RMP amendment, in order to consider the variety of resource issues and concerns identified. Specialists with expertise in the following disciplines will be involved in the planning process: Hydrology, air, archaeology, paleontology, wildlife biology, oil and gas, geology, sociology and economics.

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 Binghamton 
University, Binghamton, NY. The human remains and associated funerary 
objects were removed from Chenango County, NY.
    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 
Binghamton University professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Cayuga Nation; Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; 
Delaware Tribe of Indians; Oneida Nation (previously listed as the 
Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin); Oneida Indian Nation (previously 
listed as the Oneida Nation of New York); Onondaga Nation; Saint Regis 
Mohawk Tribe (previously listed as the St. Regis Band of Mohawk Indians

Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma); Stockbridge Munsee Community, 
Wisconsin; Tonawanda Band of Seneca (previously listed as the Tonawanda

History and Description of the Remains

    Sometime before 1975, human remains representing, at minimum, three 
individuals were removed from an unknown site in Chenango County, NY, 
possibly the Bates Site. An unknown individual donated the human 
remains to the Greene Middle School in the Town of Greene, Chenango 
County, NY in 1975. According to the teacher interviewed, the human 
remains came from an area that is near (or overlaps) the previously 
recorded Bates site, a Late Woodland settlement. The Greene Middle 
School gave the human remains to Binghamton University. No known 
individuals were identified. There are no associated funerary objects.
    A bioarchaeologist and archaeologist from Binghamton University 
determined that the human remains were Native American. Archeological 
information from the Bates site includes Canandaigua Phase (Sackett 
Corded) pottery and radiocarbon dates that cluster around A.D. 1190.
    Haudenosaunee oral tradition states that, as The People of the Long 
House, they are affiliated culturally, spiritually, biologically, and 
personally to the ancestors located within their traditional aboriginal 
territories. This connection is also based upon cultural practices, 
language, and the philosophy of respect for those ancestors that have 
passed. This evidence supports a relationship of shared group identity 
which can reasonably be traced between the Oneida Nation (previously 
listed as the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin); Oneida Indian 
Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Nation of New York); Onondaga 
Nation; and Tuscarora Nation and the human remains removed from 
Chenango County, as this location is within the traditional aboriginal 
territory of the Oneida, Onondaga, and Tuscarora Nations.

Determinations Made by the Binghamton University

    Officials of the Binghamton University have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of three 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 associated funerary objects and Oneida 
Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin); 
Oneida Indian Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Nation of New 
York); Onondaga Nation; and Tuscarora Nation.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    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 and associated 
funerary objects should submit a written request with information in 
support of the request to Nina M. Versaggi, Public Archaeology 
Facility, Binghamton University, P.O. Box 6000, Binghamton, NY 13902-
6000, telephone (607) 777-4786, email [email protected], by 
September 7, 2018. After that date, if no additional requestors have 
come forward, transfer of control of the human remains and associated 
funerary objects to Oneida Nation (previously listed as the Oneida 
Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin); Oneida Indian Nation (previously listed 
as the Oneida Nation of New York); Onondaga Nation; and Tuscarora 
Nation may proceed.
    The Binghamton University is responsible for notifying the Cayuga 
Nation; Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of Indians; Oneida 
Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin); 
Oneida Indian Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Nation of New 
York); Onondaga Nation; Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (previously listed as 
the St. Regis Band of Mohawk Indians of New York); Seneca Nation of 
Indians (previously listed as the Seneca Nation of New York); Seneca-
