SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate cultural items under the control of the New York State Museum, Albany, NY that meet the definition of objects of cultural patrimony under 25 U.S.C. 3001. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2919 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 cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. History and Description of the Cultural Item In the late nineteenth century, one cultural item was acquired by the New York State Museum through Harriet Maxwell Converse (E–37417). The one cultural item is a wampum belt known as the Ransom wampum belt. It is composed of six rows of purple beads interspersed with white beads forming five diagonal bands and two white open hexagons. The wampum belt is strung on leather warps with thread wefts and mounted on linen backing. The wampum belt measures 243⁄4 inches long and 13⁄4 inches wide. Museum records indicate Converse identified the Ransom wampum belt as ‘‘Onondaga.’’ She reported that this wampum belt was used by women as ransom to spare the life of a prisoner. As such, the Ransom wampum belt symbolizes the role of women in the adoption of captives. The records of the New York State Museum establish the cultural affiliation of this wampum belt with the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and specifically with the Onondaga Nation. Based on consultation with the Onondaga Nation, the Ransom wampum belt is an object of cultural patrimony, as it relates to the civil functions of a Council. Determinations Made by the New York State Museum Officials of the New York State Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(D), the one cultural item described above has ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, rather than property owned by an individual. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the object of cultural patrimony and the Onondaga Nation.

History and Description of the Cultural Item

    In the late nineteenth century, one cultural item was acquired by 
the New York State Museum through Harriet Maxwell Converse (E-37417). 
The one cultural item is a wampum belt known as the Ransom wampum belt. 
It is composed of six rows of purple beads interspersed with white 
beads forming five diagonal bands and two white open hexagons. The 
wampum belt is strung on leather warps with thread wefts and mounted on 
linen backing. The wampum belt measures 24\3/4\ inches long and 1\3/4\ 
inches wide.
    Museum records indicate Converse identified the Ransom wampum belt 
as ``Onondaga.'' She reported that this wampum belt was used by women 
as ransom to spare the life of a prisoner. As such, the Ransom wampum 
belt symbolizes the role of women in the adoption of captives.
    The records of the New York State Museum establish the cultural 
affiliation of this wampum belt with the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and 
specifically with the Onondaga Nation. Based on consultation with the 
Onondaga Nation, the Ransom wampum belt is an object of cultural 
patrimony, as it relates to the civil functions of a Council.

Determinations Made by the New York State Museum

    Officials of the New York State Museum have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(D), the one cultural item 
described above has ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural 
importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, 
rather than property owned by an individual.

shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the object 
of cultural patrimony and the Onondaga Nation.
