History and Description of the Remains In 1956–57, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Riverside Cemetery site (20ME1), in Menominee County, MI, during excavations conducted by UMMAA archeologist, A.C. Spaulding. Riverside Cemetery is a multi-component site that has evidence of occupation dating from the Late Archaic (2550–300 B.C.) and Late Woodland Periods (A.D. 500– 1100). Carbon 14 analysis of a burial feature excavated from the site produced a date of A.D. 650 +/¥200 years for these human remains. The burial included one adult of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is a copper fragment of irregular shape. The human remains have been determined to be Native American based on dental traits. A relationship of shared group identity can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains from this site and the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin, based on the site’s location within the lands traditionally occupied by the Menominee. Moreover, the Menominee were most likely the predominant tribe in the vicinity of the site during the date range for this burial, according to oral tradition and historical accounts. Determinations Made by the University of Michigan Officials of the University of Michigan have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Sep 07, 2018 Jkt 244001 represent the physical remains of one individual of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described in this notice is 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 object and the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. 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 object should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Dr. Ben Secunda, NAGPRA Project Manager, University of Michigan, Office of Research, 4080 Fleming Building, 503 Thompson Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48109–1340, telephone (734) 647–9085, email bsecunda@umich.edu, by October 10, 2018.
