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 Heard Museum, 
Phoenix, AZ. The human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed from the vicinity of Gila Bend, Maricopa County, AZ.
    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 Heard 
Museum professional staff in consultation with representatives of Ak-
Chin Indian Community (previously listed as the Ak Chin Indian 
Community of the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Indian Reservation, Arizona); Gila 
River Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation, Arizona; 
Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of the 
Salt River Reservation, Arizona; Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona; and 
Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico.

History and Description of the Remains

    Prior to 1953, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the vicinity of Gila Bend in Maricopa 
County, AZ, by Russell Cross and then acquired by the Heard Museum. In 
1953, the museum assigned the human remains and associated funerary 
objects catalog number NA-SW-HH-A4-2. The human remains belong to a 
middle-aged adult of unknown gender. No known individuals were 
identified. The two associated funerary objects are one jar and one 
animal bone.
    The jar is identified as Hohokam Sacaton Red-on-Buff with a low 
Gila Shoulder, and was made between approximately A.D. 900 and 1100. In 
1990, the Ak-Chin Indian Community, Gila River Indian Community, Salt 
River Pima-Maricopa Community, and Tohono O'odham Nation adopted a 
joint policy statement stating that a cultural affiliation existed 
between themselves and the ancestors they described as ``Hohokam.'' 
Subsequently, the Hopi Tribe (in 1994) and Pueblo of Zuni (in 1995) 
asserted their own cultural affiliation with the Hohokam.

Determinations Made by the Heard Museum

    Officials of the Heard 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(3)(A), the two 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 Ak-Chin 
Indian Community (previously listed as the Ak Chin Indian Community of 
the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Indian Reservation, Arizona); Cocopah Tribe of 
Arizona; Colorado River Indian Tribes of the Colorado River Indian 
Reservation, Arizona and California; Fort Mojave Indian Tribe of 
Arizona, California & Nevada; Gila River Indian Community of the Gila 
River Indian Reservation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Quechan Tribe 
of the Fort Yuma Indian Reservation, California & Arizona; Salt River 
Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona;

Reservation, New Mexico (hereafter referred to as ``The Tribes'').

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
