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 and associated funerary objects under the control of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management, Idaho State Office, Boise, ID and housed at the Idaho Museum of Natural History, Earl H. Swanson Archaeological Repository, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID (IMNH). The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Hanging Valley Cave (10JE5), Jerome County, ID, on land administered by the BLM. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). 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 the BLM and IMNH professional staff in consultation with representatives of the ShoshoneBannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation and the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Reservation, Nevada. History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from a crevice in Hanging Valley Cave (10JE5) in Jerome County, ID, by Gene Titmus of Twin Falls, ID. In 1962, Mr. Titmus turned over the human remains to IMNH. Forensics analysis of the two parietal cranial bones conducted by IMNH concluded the human remains were from one middle aged individual based on ‘‘obliteration of the sagittal sutures.’’ Burning on the human remains suggests they were cremated. No known individuals were identified. The seven associated funerary objects are six Rose Spring/Eastgate corner notched projectile points and one basal fragment. Based on projectile point typology and chronologies for southern Idaho, the site can be dated to the Late Period, with a date range from A.D. 300 to 1850. As evidenced by the geographic location (Jerome County, ID), chronology of the site, archeological, ethnographic, oral history and historic evidence, the human remains and associated funerary objects are determined to be culturally affiliated to the Uto Aztecan speaking Bannock, Northern Shoshone and Northern Paiute tribes who inhabited the region during the period of use and today. The burial site is within the territory of the Northwestern Band of Shoshone Nation, the ShoshoneBannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation, Idaho, and the ShoshonePaiute Tribes of the Duck Valley Reservation, Nevada.

History and Description of the Remains
