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 Kansas State Historical Society, Topeka, KS. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Doniphan County, KS. 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 and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Kansas State Historical Society professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Kaw Nation, Oklahoma. History and Description of the Remains In 1963, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals were removed from the Fanning site, 14DP1 (UBS 2015–04), in Doniphan, Kansas. The human remains are part of a larger collection donated to the Wyandotte County Historical Society and Museum by a local collector. In May 2015, the Kansas State Historical Society agreed to take these materials for the purpose of carrying out the requirements of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Staff PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 identified and took possession of human remains: One left tibia, one right tibia, one left femur, one right femur, one immature right radius, one left fibula diaphysis, one unidentified long bone fragment, one primary lower incisor, one secondary upper right canine, one secondary dentition tooth with significant wear, with each of these three teeth probably representing a different individual; one right side of a mandible with teeth, one right fourth metatarsal, left and right tali and naviculars, one each; one right calcaneus, one each second and third cuneiforms (19 elements/teeth). The 7 associated funerary objects identified from the 14DP1 collection are one diaphysis of an animal humerus, possibly belonging to a badger; five middle phalanges belonging to an unidentified species; and one proximal epiphyseal plate of a phalanx belonging to an unidentified species. The site is affiliated with the Oneota archeological manifestation (A.D. 1000 to 1600), which is believed to be ancestral to the Kaw, the Otoe, or the Iowa. Several archeological sites in Kansas and Nebraska have been identified as Oneota (Ritterbush 2006:151). The Fanning site is tied both to the Oneota tradition and the historic Kansa (Buffalohead 2004:334–335; Marshall 2006:219, 230–231; 2008:87– 92; O’Shea and Ludwickson 1992:16– 17; Ritterbush 2006:151–152; Ritterbush and Logan 2009; Unrau 1971:19, Wedel 1959: 29, 51).

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 Kansas State 
Historical Society, Topeka, KS. The human remains and associated

    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 and associated funerary objects. 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 Kansas 
State Historical Society professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Kaw Nation, Oklahoma.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1963, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals 
were removed from the Fanning site, 14DP1 (UBS 2015-04), in Doniphan, 
Kansas. The human remains are part of a larger collection donated to 
the Wyandotte County Historical Society and Museum by a local 
collector. In May 2015, the Kansas State Historical Society agreed to 
take these materials for the purpose of carrying out the requirements 
of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). 
Staff identified and took possession of human remains: One left tibia, 
one right tibia, one left femur, one right femur, one immature right 
radius, one left fibula diaphysis, one unidentified long bone fragment, 
one primary lower incisor, one secondary upper right canine, one 
secondary dentition tooth with significant wear, with each of these 
three teeth probably representing a different individual; one right 
side of a mandible with teeth, one right fourth metatarsal, left and 
right tali and naviculars, one each; one right calcaneus, one each 
second and third cuneiforms (19 elements/teeth). The 7 associated 
funerary objects identified from the 14DP1 collection are one diaphysis 
of an animal humerus, possibly belonging to a badger; five middle 
phalanges belonging to an unidentified species; and one proximal 
epiphyseal plate of a phalanx belonging to an unidentified species.
    The site is affiliated with the Oneota archeological manifestation 
(A.D. 1000 to 1600), which is believed to be ancestral to the Kaw, the 
Otoe, or the Iowa. Several archeological sites in Kansas and Nebraska 
have been identified as Oneota (Ritterbush 2006:151). The Fanning site 
is tied both to the Oneota tradition and the historic Kansa 
(Buffalohead 2004:334-335; Marshall 2006:219, 230-231; 2008:87-92; 
O'Shea and Ludwickson 1992:16-17; Ritterbush 2006:151-152; Ritterbush 
and Logan 2009; Unrau 1971:19, Wedel 1959: 29, 51).

Determinations Made by the Kansas State Historical Society

    Officials of the Kansas State Historical Society have determined 
that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of three individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the seven 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 the Kaw Nation.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to
