On August 2, 2018, One-E-Way and GN filed a joint motion to terminate the remand investigation as to GN based upon a settlement and license agreement. The motion was unopposed, and no responses to the motion were filed. On August 6, 2018, the ALJ issued the subject ID pursuant to Commission Rule 210.21(b) (19 CFR 210.21(b)), granting the joint motion to terminate GN based on a settlement and license agreement. The ID finds that the settlement agreement is consistent with the requirements of Commission Rule 210.21(b)(1) (19 CFR 210.21(b)(1)). The ID also finds, pursuant to Commission Rule 210.50(b)(2) (19 CFR 210.50(b)(2)), that the requested termination does not impose any undue burdens on the public health and welfare, competitive conditions in the United States economy, production of like or directly competitive articles in the United States, or United States consumers. No petitions for review were filed. The Commission has determined not to review the subject ID. As GN is the last remaining respondent, the termination of GN also terminates the remand investigation in its entirety. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in Part 210 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210).

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1975, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals 
were removed from the Hanse site in Kings County, CA. Fresno City 
College instructor Don Wren and his students (and possibly Dudley 
Varner of California State University, Fresno) were involved in a 
salvage excavation of at least 13 burials in response to vandalism at 
the site. In January 2017, an osteological examination of the faunal 
collections was conducted to determine if human remains were present. 
That examination resulted in the identification of the human remains 
described in this inventory. The human remains represent one adult of 
indeterminate sex, one sub-adult of indeterminate sex, and one sub-
adult (neonatal) of indeterminate sex. The three individuals are 
represented by a total of 248 fragments. No known individuals were 
identified. The 75 associated funerary objects: are 57 lots of shell 
beads, one lot of bone beads, one lot of steatite beads, two lots of 
shell buttons, one lot of shell pendants, one lot of shell artifacts, 
three lots of shell fragments, two lots of steatite sherds, and seven 
lots of mixed materials.

Fresno City College

    Officials of the State Center Community College District--Fresno 
City College 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, based on their archeological context.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 75 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

shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and associated funerary objects and the Santa 
Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California, based on 
geographic information and oral tradition.
