Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Pueblo Grande Museum professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Pueblo of Acoma, New Mexico; and the Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes’’). History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Double Circle Ranch near Eagle Creek in Greenlee County, AZ, by an unknown collector. In 1986, the human remains and associated funerary objects were identified in the collections of the Arizona Museum, which later became the Phoenix Museum of History. On September 10, 2009, the human remains and associated funerary objects were transferred from the Phoenix Museum of History (which closed in 2009) to the Pueblo Grande Museum. No known individual was identified. The fragmentary and cremated human remains belong to an adult, and are possibly male. The two associated funerary objects include an Alameda Brown ware ceramic jar and a red ware sherd. Alameda Brown ware dates between A.D. 700 and 1300. Based on the collecting location and associated funerary object type, these human remains are likely from the Mogollon archeological culture, which is Ancestral Puebloan. Cultural continuity between Ancestral Puebloans and modern day Puebloan tribes is demonstrated by geographical, archeological, historical, architectural, and oral traditional evidence. The Hopi Tribe of Arizona considers all of Arizona to be within traditional Hopi lands or within areas where Hopi E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1
