Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
Sternberg Museum of Natural History professional staff in consultation 
with representatives of Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1928, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals 
were removed from Nogales, in Santa Cruz County, AZ. Two ollas, each of 
which contained the cremated remains of one individual, were uncovered 
during an operation to lower and pave a street. The two ollas were 
donated by Mr. James W. Haddock of Nogales High School in 1929. No 
known individuals were identified.
    According to a letter from Mr. Haddock, Dr. Dean Cummings of the 
University of Arizona supervised the excavation of the ollas. Dr. 
Cummings identified the ollas as belonging to the ``Pithouse Indians 
and about 2000 years old.'' Mr. Peter Steere, Tribal Historic 
Preservation Officer for the Tohono O'odham Nation Cultural Center & 
Museum, identified the ollas as Hohokam plain ware vessels that date to 
A.D. 1000-1400. The Hohokam are regarded as the ancestors of the Tohono 
O'odham, and the Nogales area of Southern Arizona is within the 
geographic area covered by the Tohono O'odham Nation under NAGPRA 
repatriation.

Determinations Made by the Sternberg Museum of Natural History

    Officials of the Sternberg Museum of Natural History have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of two individuals 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
