The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Burns Paiute Tribe (previously listed as the Burns Paiute Tribe of the Burns Paiute Indian Colony of Oregon); Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon; Fort Bidwell Indian Community of the Fort Bidwell Reservation of California; and Klamath Tribes (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes’’). History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing one individual were removed from an unknown location and donated to the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History by a private donor in 1934. While museum records do not identify exact provenience for the human remains, the donor was a resident of Lakeview, in Lake County, OR, and it is reasonably believed that the human remains were removed from that vicinity. The human remains consist of an adult male (museum cat. #11–6). No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from a location in agricultural fields ‘‘approximately nine miles due west of Lakeview and one half mile south of the Klamath Falls-Lakeview Highway,’’ in Lake County, OR. The human remains were initially encountered during plowing, and were donated to the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History in 1949.

The human remains consist of an adult of indeterminate sex (no museum catalog number assigned). No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remains from the above locations are determined to be Native American based on burial context and/ or skeletal evidence. Historical documents, ethnographic sources, and oral history indicate that The Tribes have occupied the area of Lakeview, OR, area since pre-contact times. Based on museum records, the human remains are reasonably believed to be culturally affiliated with The Tribes. Determinations Made by the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History Officials of the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History 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 The Tribes.
