Mr. Gillman donated the human remains to Princeton VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Feb 07, 2019 Jkt 247001 University on April 18, 1874. The human remains are grouped together and thus cannot be linked to any of the specific three locations listed as the sources. Analysis of the human remains suggests that between twelve and eighteen individuals are represented. Sex cannot be determined due to the lack of pelves or intact crania. At least one individual was in early childhood (from 2–6 years old), at least one was an adolescent (from 16–21 years old), and the remainder were adults. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Determinations Made by Princeton University Officials of Princeton University have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice are Native American based on associated records and Henry Gillman’s 1874 publication ‘‘The Mound-Builders and Platycnemism in Michigan’’ (Smithsonian Report for 1975). • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 12 individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and any present-day Indian Tribe. • According to the final judgments of the Indian Claims Commission or the Court of Federal Claims, Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, the land from which the Native American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of The Consulted Tribes and The Invited Tribes. • Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the human remains may be to The Consulted Tribes and The Invited Tribes.
