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).

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 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

Thompson Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1340, telephone (734) 647-9085,
