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. Additional Requestors and Disposition Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian Tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim this cultural item should submit a written request with E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1977, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals 
were removed from 35TI47, Oceanside Beach State Recreation Site in 
Tillamook County, OR, by Oregon State University. The excavation took 
place at the request of the OPRD to assess the impacts of proposed park

wedge; one blade; one modified bone; one non-human bone fragment; one 
unidentified lithic; three projectile points; one camas bulb; and one 
lot of bagged flakes, glass, shell, ecofacts, lithics, and unidentified 
botanical remains.
    Ethnographic records indicate that Oceanside, located on the sand 
spit that defines the southern edge of Tillamook Bay, was occupied by 
the Tillamook. Based on geographical, ethnographic, linguistic, 
kinship, oral historical and historical evidence, a relationship of 
shared group identity between the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians 
of Oregon (previously listed as the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz 
Reservation) and the Tillamook at Oceanside can be reasonably traced 
historically. Based on geographical, ethnographic, linguistic and 
historical evidence, a relationship of shared group identity between 
the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the 
Tillamook at Oceanside also can be reasonably traced historically.

Determinations Made by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department

    Officials of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of three individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 20 objects described 
in this notice are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near 
individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and associated funerary objects and The 
Consulted Tribes.

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian Tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to 
request transfer of control of these human remains and associated 
funerary objects should submit a written request with information in

Department Archaeologist, 725 Summer Street NE, Suite C, Salem, OR 
97301, telephone (503) 986-0578, by March 11, 2019. After that date, if
