Download as PDF 62886 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 234 / Thursday, December 6, 2018 / Notices 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 University of Iowa, Office of the State Archaeologist Bioarchaeology Program, Iowa City, IA. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from the Blood Run site (13LO2), Lyon County, IA. 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the OSA professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska; Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma; Omaha Tribe of Nebraska; OtoeMissouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma; Ponca Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma; Ponca Tribe of Nebraska; and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes.’’ History and Description of the Remains In 1964, human remains representing, at minimum, six individuals were removed from the Blood Run site (13LO2) in Lyon County, IA. The human remains were removed during an archeological excavation conducted by Dale Henning, and were stored at the University of Wisconsin. At an unknown date, these human remains were transferred to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. In July 2018, the human remains were transferred to the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist Bioarchaeology Program (OSA–BP). The human remains belong to two young subadults both between 2.5 and 3.5 years old; one young adult male; one middle adult male; one middle to old adult male; and one probable adult of unknown sex, who is represented by a single tooth (Burial Project 3335). No known individuals were identified. The two associated funerary objects are the tooth of a canine and a faunal long bone fragment. During the second half of the 20th century, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Blood Run Site (13LO2) in VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:35 Dec 04, 2018 Jkt 247001 Lyon County, IA. An incomplete mandible was recovered from the ground surface of the site by a private collector. In May 2017, the human remains were transferred to the OSA– BP. An adolescent aged 13.5 to 19.5 years is represented by the human remains (Burial Project 3198). No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1886, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals, were removed from the Blood Run Site (13LO2) in Lyon County, IA. The human remains were excavated under the direction of J. White and Frederick Starr. At an unknown date, likely before the turn of the 20th century, some of the human remains from this excavation were donated to the museum at Coe College (Accession #2101). In 2018, Coe College transferred the skeletal remains from 13LO2 to the OSA–BP. Two adults of indeterminate age and sex and one adolescent, 17 to 22 years old, are represented by the human remains (Burial Project 1934). No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is an atlas from a canid, possibly a wolf. The Blood Run site (13LO2) is a large Oneota tradition village located in Iowa and South Dakota, and straddling the Big Sioux River southeast of Sioux Falls, SD. Archeological evidence, including radiocarbon dates and trade artifacts, suggests that the site was occupied from A.D. 1500 to 1700. Tribal histories, supported by French historical maps and documents, suggest that the Omaha, Ponca, Iowa, and Oto tribes were present in the area at that time, and were the probable residents of the site. The Ho-Chunk and Winnebago are also ethno-historically linked to these tribes. Based on this contextual information, it has been determined that there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between these Native American human remains and The Tribes. Determinations Made by the Office of the State Archaeologist Bioarchaeology Program Officials of the Office of the State Archaeologist Bioarchaeology Program have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 10 individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the three 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. PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • 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 and the Tribes. 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 objects should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Dr. Lara Noldner, Office of the State Archaeologist Bioarchaeology Program, University of Iowa, 700 S Clinton Street, Iowa City, IA 52242, telephone (319) 384–0740, email lara-noldner@uiowa.edu, by January 4, 2019.

While skeletal analysis completed in 1987 determined that the human remains represent a single juvenile additional analysis in 2015 determined the presence of a second individual, a newborn. The Iowa State Archaeologist did not have any documentation as to how these human remains were excavated or disturbed. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1992, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed from the Ferryville Implement Company I site (47–CR–0123) in Crawford County, WI. Situated on a terrace over the Mississippi River, the site is a multicomponent habitation area used as a village or campsite from the Late Archaic to the Oneota periods (3000 B.C. to ca. A.D. 1650). Human remains representing one adult and one juvenile of indeterminate sex were excavated by the Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center; the exact location of the trenches is unknown.

The human remains were determined to belong to a juvenile of indeterminate sex and an adult male. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1988, human remains representing, at minimum, 16 individuals were removed from the Tarbox (47–CR–0441) site in Crawford County, WI. The human remains were encountered during a septic system construction project on the property of Mr. and Mrs. Tarbox. Because the project endangered PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62887 the preservation of the human remains, the Tarboxs opted to have them removed by the Burial Sites Preservation Office. The human remains belong to two adult males, six probable adult females, two adults of indeterminate sex, and six juveniles of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. The five associated funerary objects are two groups of ceramic sherds, one copper bead, one quartzite projectile point, and one copper awl. In 1988, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual was removed from the Schmitz Burial site (47–CR–0442) in Crawford County, WI.

The site was investigated by archeologist Warren Wittry of the Wisconsin Historical Society in 1954 and 1955 as a research project targeted at obtaining diagnostic chronological information of Wisconsin’s prehistory. During excavations, Wittry discovered human remains representing one adult female and one individual of indeterminate age and sex. The adult female, found in a primary burial, had been interred in a flexed position in a prepared burial pit. The individual of indeterminate age and sex is represented by only a few skeletal elements that were found intermingled within occupation debris. Wittry could not determine whether the second set of human remains represented an intentional burial or had been displaced due to natural erosion or other causes. No known individuals were identified. E:\FR\FM\06DEN1.SGM 06DEN1

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
Wisconsin Historical Society professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; 
Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior 
Chippewa Indians of the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; 
Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; and the Upper Sioux Community, 
Minnesota, hereafter referred to as ``The Consulted Tribes.''

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1987, human remains representing, at minimum two individuals 
were removed from the Karnopp-Eggleston Mound Group (47-CR-0005) in 
Crawford County, WI. The human remains were transferred to the 
Wisconsin Historical Society's Burial Sites Preservation Office (BSPO) 
from the Office of the Iowa State Archaeologist. While skeletal 
analysis completed in 1987 determined that the human remains represent 
a single juvenile additional analysis in 2015 determined the presence 
of a second individual, a newborn. The Iowa State Archaeologist did not 
have any documentation as to how these human remains were excavated or 
disturbed. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present.
    In 1992, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals 
were removed from the Ferryville Implement Company I site (47-CR-0123) 
in Crawford County, WI. Situated on a terrace over the Mississippi 
River, the site is a multicomponent habitation area used as a village 
or campsite from the Late Archaic to the Oneota periods (3000 B.C. to 
ca. A.D. 1650). Human remains representing one adult and one juvenile 
of indeterminate sex were excavated by the Mississippi Valley 
Archaeology Center; the exact location of the trenches is unknown. The 
BSPO accepted the remains in 1992. No known individuals were 
identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from Pintz I Site (47-CR-0138) in Crawford 
County, WI. These human remains, representing one individual of 
indeterminate sex and age, were discovered when a conical mound was 
disturbed by a combination of looters, rodent holes, and erosion. The 
human remains were reported by James Theler of the Mississippi Valley 
Archaeology Center in 1989 and sent to the BSPO that same year. No 
known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    At an unknown date in the 1930s, human remains representing, at 
minimum, two individuals were removed from Fort Shelby (47-CR-0249) in 
Crawford County, WI. The human remains were recovered by Leland Cooper 
of Hamline University and donated by Hamline University in Minnesota to 
the Wisconsin Historical Society in the 1930s. The human remains were 
determined to belong to a juvenile of indeterminate sex and an adult 
male. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present.
    In 1988, human remains representing, at minimum, 16 individuals 
were removed from the Tarbox (47-CR-0441) site in Crawford County, WI. 
The human remains were encountered during a septic system construction 
project on the property of Mr. and Mrs. Tarbox. Because the project 
endangered the preservation of the human remains, the Tarboxs opted to 
have them removed by the Burial Sites Preservation Office. The human 
remains belong to two adult males, six probable adult females, two 
adults of indeterminate sex, and six juveniles of indeterminate sex. No 
known individuals were identified. The five associated funerary objects 
are two groups of ceramic sherds, one copper bead, one quartzite 
projectile point, and one copper awl.
    In 1988, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual was 
removed from the Schmitz Burial site (47-CR-0442) in Crawford County, 
WI. A portion of the burial was disturbed during a septic system 
construction project on the property of Mr. Ron Schmitz, and because 
the remainder of the burial was in jeopardy of being destroyed, Mr. 
Schmitz opted to have it removed by the Burial Sites Preservation 
Office. The human remains belong to one adult male. No known 
individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the Charm Burial site (47-CR-0592) in 
Crawford County, WI. The human remains were collected by an unknown 
individual from an unknown location along Highway 35, near the city of 
Charme, and were donated by an unknown individual to the Wisconsin 
Historical Society in 1934. They were determined to belong to a 
juvenile of indeterminate sex. Copper staining is present on several of 
the bone fragments. No known individuals were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.

Determinations Made by the Wisconsin Historical Society

    Officials of the Wisconsin Historical Society have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice are Native American based on Wisconsin Historical 
Society records, burial location, archeological context, oral 
histories, and skeletal analysis.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 25 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the five 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), a relationship of shared 
group identity

[[Page 62888]]

cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains 
and associated funerary objects and any present-day Indian Tribe.
     According to final judgments of the Indian Claims 
Commission or the Court of Federal Claims, the land from which the 
Native American human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed is the aboriginal land of the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and 
the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains and 
associated funerary objects were removed is the aboriginal land of the 
Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of the Chippewa Indians of 
the Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin; Bay Mills Indian Community, 
Michigan; Chippewa Cree Indians of the Rocky Boy's Reservation, Montana 
(previously listed as the Chippewa-Cree Indians of the Rocky Boy's 
Reservation, Montana); Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa 
Indians, Michigan; Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Keweenaw Bay Indian 
Community, Michigan; Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa

Tribe of Nebraska, hereafter referred to as ``The Aboriginal Land 
Tribes.''
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains and associated funerary objects may be to The Aboriginal 
Land Tribes.

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 and associated funerary objects should submit a
