institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American 
human remains and associated funerary objects. The National Park

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,

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1960, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from the Earll II Site (47-VE-0050) in Vernon County, WI. 
The site was investigated by the Wisconsin Historical Society (WHS) in 
1960, as part of the LaFarge Dam Project. During this project, the WHS 
excavated two of three mounds found at the site--the linear mound 
(Mound 2) and one of the oval mounds (Mound 1)--that were slated for 
destruction to make way for the relocation of State Highway 131. In 
Mound 2, WHS archeologists found a subfloor burial pit that contained 
human remains that were later determined to belong to a Native American 
adult of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. The 
seven associated funerary objects are one group of stone flakes, one 
chert flake, one chert projectile point, one biface fragment, one chert 
projectile point fragment, one faunal tooth, and one ceramic sherd.

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains 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 were removed is the aboriginal land of

Crow Creek Reservation, South Dakota; Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe of 
South Dakota; Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Lower Brule Sioux Tribe of
