San Diego Museum of Man for the purpose of archeological 
reconnaissance. Artifacts were also collected by a property owner Mr. 
Carroll D. Scott and were later donated to the San Diego Museum of Man 
on March 15, 1956. Human remains were believed to be associated with 
this site. Per consultation with Kumeyaay Nation representatives, human 
remains were subsequently discovered on a date after the 1950's. The

referred to as W-150, in the area of Rose Canyon in Pacific Beach, San 
Diego County, CA. Malcolm Rogers excavated these sacred objects on 
behalf of the San Diego Museum of Man for the purpose of archeological 
reconnaissance. Per consultation with the Kumeyaay Nation 
representatives, it was determined that these sacred objects are 
specifically used for traditional Kumeyaay religious ceremonies. Based 
upon consultation, these items meet the definition and criteria of 
sacred objects. The three sacred objects are two groundstone pestles 
and one ecofact.
    At an unknown date, sometime between the years of the 1920's and 
1950's, 63 cultural items were removed from site CA-SDI-11,767, also 
referred to as W-175, in the area of Mission Valley, San Diego County

Museum of Man for the purpose of archeological reconnaissance. Human 
remains were believed to be associated with this site. An updated 
report dated 10/5/1995 indicated an excavation and reburial of human 
remains beneath a rock cairn. The 63 unassociated funerary items are: 
Five chipped stone choppers, 17 chipped stone scrappers, two

affiliated as Kumeyaay.
