U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains under

    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

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 1927, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals 
were removed from the Northwestern Military and Naval Academy Mounds 
(47-WL-0061) in Walworth County, WI. The Northwestern Military and 
Naval Academy Mounds site is comprised of five conical mounds and a 
habitation site. Charles E. Brown and members of the Geneva Lake 
Archeological Survey excavated Mounds 1 and 2 in 1927. A single burial 
feature was excavated near the center of Mound 2 just beneath the 
surface of the ground upon which the mound was constructed. Skeletal 
analysis completed by Wisconsin Historical Society staff determined 
that the human remains represent one adult male between the ages of 30 
and 50, and one individual of indeterminate age and sex. The Geneva 
Lake Archeological Survey donated the human remains to the Wisconsin 
Historical Society in 1928. No known individuals were identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.

group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and any present-day Indian Tribe.

Native American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of

Indiana; and the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation (previously listed as 
the Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation, Kansas), hereafter referred to 
as ``The Aboriginal Land Tribes.''
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains were removed 
is the aboriginal land of the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe 
of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin; Bay Mills
