Notice of Inventory Completion: History Colorado, Formerly Colorado Historical Society, Denver, CO, 52505-52507 [2018-22593]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 201 / Wednesday, October 17, 2018 / Notices authorize the negotiated terms of the transfer of each project or facility. Eligibility for this CE would be determined by Reclamation, based on results of on-site inspections, surveys, and other methods of evaluation and documentation prepared by Reclamation to determine the presence or absence of the exceptions. To determine that a proposed title transfer fits within the CE, Reclamation would review the proposal to determine that all the following apply: 1. The Departmental extraordinary circumstances listed at 43 CFR 46.215 would not be triggered by the title transfer action. 2. The title transfer action would not change: a. Operation and maintenance of the facilities or lands transferred; b. land or water use. 3. The title transfer action would not involve any unresolved issue associated with compliance with interstate compacts and agreements; meeting the Secretary’s Native American trust responsibilities; fulfilling treaty and international agreement obligations. Even for a title transfer action that meets these criteria, Reclamation may, within its discretion, decide to prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) instead of applying the CE. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Basis for Establishing the Categorical Exclusion To date, Reclamation has prepared EAs and made findings of no significant impact (FONSI) on each of the eight projects shown below, indicating location and EA/FONSI date. These EAs and FONSIs substantiate Reclamation’s record to demonstrate that no individually or cumulatively significant effects are typically attributable to the eligible types of activities that would be included in the proposed CE. The EA and FONSI documentation for the following projects is available at www.usbr.gov/title: 1. Clear Creek Unit, Central Valley Project, California, 1998. 2. Distribution System to Carpinteria Valley Water District, California, 2000. 3. Distribution System to the Montecito Water District, California, 2001. 4. Robert B. Griffith Water Project, Nevada, 2001. 5. McGee Creek, Oklahoma, 2006. 6. Newlands Project Headquarters and Maintenance Yard Conveyance, Nevada, 2007. 7. Arbuckle (partial), Oklahoma, 2014. 8. Water Distribution System to Goleta Water District, California, 2007 (transfer pending). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:46 Oct 16, 2018 Jkt 247001 Reclamation has prepared two EISs on title transfer proposals and two EAs for projects that involved more complex actions than those that would meet the eligibility criteria. Reclamation has also prepared 12 EAs and FONSIs on title transfer proposals for which mitigation was applied to reduce impacts to less than significant. Several of these proposals involved issues of concern including sites of interest to tribal communities and adverse effects to historic properties. The full complement of these EAs, FONSIs, and EISs and Reclamation’s knowledge and experience contribute to the body of work Reclamation has used to analyze its title transfer actions and validate its definition of projects for which the proposed CE would be used. Based on the consideration of the types of projects that meet the eligibility and exception criteria above, Reclamation proposes to determine that this category of actions would not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Reclamation invites comments on this proposed CE and will consider all comments received. When Reclamation makes a determination on establishing a new CE, the new language would be incorporated into 516 DM 14 under internal Departmental administrative procedures. At that time, Reclamation intends to employ the same internal Departmental administrative procedures to make routine updates to the DM, including references to regulations and policies, organizational changes, and formatting. Public Disclosure Statement Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

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 under the control of History Colorado, Denver, CO. The human remains were removed from Montrose County, CO. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3) and 43 CFR 10.11(d). 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. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by History Colorado professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Arapaho Tribe of the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming; Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma (previously listed as the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma); Eastern Shoshone Tribe of the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming (previously listed as the Shoshone Tribe of the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming); Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico; Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma; Northern Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, Montana; Ohkay Owingeh, New Mexico (previously listed as the Pueblo of San Juan); Pueblo of Santa Clara, New Mexico; Rosebud Sioux Tribe of the Rosebud Indian Reservation, South Dakota; Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation; Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Indian Reservation, Colorado; Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah & Ouray Reservation, Utah; Ute Mountain Ute Tribe VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:46 Oct 16, 2018 Jkt 247001 (previously listed as the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah); and the Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico. The Crow Creek Sioux Tribe of the Crow Creek Reservation, South Dakota; and the Pueblo of San Felipe, New Mexico were invited to consult, but did not participate. Hereafter, all the tribes listed above are referred to as ‘‘The Consulted and Invited Tribes.’’ History and Description of the Remains In the 1930s or 1940s, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unspecified location in Paradox Valley, Montrose County, CO, by a private citizen. They were later passed on to other family members and in February 2018, the niece of the collector mailed them to the Office of the State Archeologist, where they are identified as Office of Archeology and Historic Preservation (OAHP) Case Number 329. The Montrose County Coroner ruled out forensic interest in the human remains. Osteological analysis by Dr. Diane France of the Human Identification Laboratory of Colorado indicates that the human remains are of Native American ancestry and are archeological. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. History Colorado, in partnership with the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs, Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado, and the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, conducted tribal consultations among the tribes with ancestral ties to the State of Colorado to develop the process for disposition of culturally unidentifiable Native American human remains and associated funerary objects originating from inadvertent discoveries on Colorado State and private lands. As a result of the consultation, a process was developed, Process for Consultation, Transfer, and Reburial of Culturally Unidentifiable Native American Human Remains and Associated Funerary Objects Originating From Inadvertent Discoveries on Colorado State and Private Lands, (2008, unpublished, on file with the Colorado Office of Archeology and Historic Preservation). Pursuant to the Process, the tribes consulted are those who have expressed their wishes to be notified of discoveries in the Basin and Plateau Consultation Region, (which is where this individual originated). The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee (Review Committee) is PO 00000 Frm 00131 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 responsible for recommending specific actions for disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains. On November 3–4, 2006, the Process was presented to the Review Committee for consideration. A January 8, 2007, letter on behalf of the Review Committee from the Designated Federal Officer transmitted the provisional authorization to proceed with the Process upon receipt of formal responses from the Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico, and the Kiowa Indian Tribe of Oklahoma, subject to forthcoming conditions imposed by the Secretary of the Interior. On May 15–16, 2008, the responses from the Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico, and the Kiowa Indian Tribe of Oklahoma were submitted to the Review Committee. On September 23, 2008, the Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, as the designee for the Secretary of the Interior, transmitted the authorization for the disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains according to the Process and NAGPRA, pending publication of a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register. This notice fulfills that requirement. 43 CFR 10.11 was promulgated on March 15, 2010, to provide a process for the disposition of culturally unidentifiable Native American human remains recovered from tribal or aboriginal lands as established by the final judgment of the Indian Claims Commission or U.S. Court of Claims, a treaty, Act of Congress, or Executive Order, or other authoritative governmental sources. As there is no evidence indicating that the human remains reported in this notice originated from tribal or aboriginal lands, they are eligible for disposition under the Process. Determinations Made by History Colorado Officials of History Colorado 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 based on osteological analysis of the human remains. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and any present-day Indian Tribe. • Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.16 and the Process, the disposition of the human remains may be to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado, and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe (previously listed as E:\FR\FM\17OCN1.SGM 17OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 201 / Wednesday, October 17, 2018 / Notices the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah). Additional Requestors and Disposition 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 should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Sheila Goff, NAGPRA Liaison, History Colorado, 1200 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203, telephone (303) 866–4531, email sheila.goff@ state.co.us, by November 16, 2018. After that date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the human remains to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado, and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe (previously listed as the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah) may proceed.

43 CFR 10.11(d). The determinations in this notice are the sole

of the Crow Creek Reservation, South Dakota; and the Pueblo of San 
Felipe, New Mexico were invited to consult, but did not participate. 
Hereafter, all the tribes listed above are referred to as ``The 
Consulted and Invited Tribes.''

History and Description of the Remains

    In the 1930s or 1940s, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from an unspecified location in Paradox Valley, 
Montrose County, CO, by a private citizen. They were later passed on to 
other family members and in February 2018, the niece of the collector 
mailed them to the Office of the State Archeologist, where they are 
identified as Office of Archeology and Historic Preservation (OAHP) 
Case Number 329. The Montrose County Coroner ruled out forensic 
interest in the human remains. Osteological analysis by Dr. Diane 
France of the Human Identification Laboratory of Colorado indicates 
that the human remains are of Native American ancestry and are 
archeological. No known individuals were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    History Colorado, in partnership with the Colorado Commission of 
Indian Affairs, Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute 
Reservation, Colorado, and the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain 
Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah, conducted tribal 
consultations among the tribes with ancestral ties to the State of 
Colorado to develop the process for disposition of culturally 
unidentifiable Native American human remains and associated funerary 
objects originating from inadvertent discoveries on Colorado State and 
private lands. As a result of the consultation, a process was 
developed, Process for Consultation, Transfer, and Reburial of 
Culturally Unidentifiable Native American Human Remains and Associated 
Funerary Objects Originating From Inadvertent Discoveries on Colorado 
State and Private Lands, (2008, unpublished, on file with the Colorado 
Office of Archeology and Historic Preservation). Pursuant to the 
Process, the tribes consulted are those who have expressed their wishes 
to be notified of discoveries in the Basin and Plateau Consultation 
Region, (which is where this individual originated).
    The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review 
Committee (Review Committee) is responsible for recommending specific 
actions for disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains. On 
November 3-4, 2006, the Process was presented to the Review Committee 
for consideration. A January 8, 2007, letter on behalf of the Review 
Committee from the Designated Federal Officer transmitted the 
provisional authorization to proceed with the Process upon receipt of 
formal responses from the Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico, and the 
Kiowa Indian Tribe of Oklahoma, subject to forthcoming conditions 
imposed by the Secretary of the Interior. On May 15-16, 2008, the 
responses from the Jicarilla Apache Nation, New Mexico, and the Kiowa 
Indian Tribe of Oklahoma were submitted to the Review Committee. On 
September 23, 2008, the Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and 
Parks, as the designee for the Secretary of the Interior, transmitted 
the authorization for the disposition of culturally unidentifiable 
human remains according to the Process and NAGPRA, pending publication 
of a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register. This 
notice fulfills that requirement.
    43 CFR 10.11 was promulgated on March 15, 2010, to provide a 
process for the disposition of culturally unidentifiable Native 
American human remains recovered from tribal or aboriginal lands as 
established by the final judgment of the Indian Claims Commission or 
U.S. Court of Claims, a treaty, Act of Congress, or Executive Order, or 
other authoritative governmental sources. As there is no evidence 
indicating that the human remains reported in this notice originated 
from tribal or aboriginal lands, they are eligible for disposition 
under the Process.

Determinations Made by History Colorado

    Officials of History Colorado 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 based on osteological analysis of the human 
remains.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and any present-day Indian Tribe.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.16 and the Process, the disposition 
of the human remains may be to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the 
Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado, and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe 
(previously listed as

[[Page 52507]]

the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New 
Mexico & Utah).

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    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 should submit a written request with information 
in support of the request to Sheila Goff, NAGPRA Liaison, History 
Colorado, 1200 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203, telephone (303) 866-4531, 
email [email protected], by November 16, 2018. After that date, 
if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of 
the human remains to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute 
Reservation, Colorado, and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe (previously 
listed as the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, 
Colorado, New Mexico & Utah) may proceed.
    History Colorado is responsible for notifying The Consulted and 
Invited Tribes that this notice has been published.
