History and Description of the Remains

    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, two 
individuals were removed from an undetermined location or locations, 
probably in Saginaw County, MI. No known individuals were identified. 
The human remains were found in the Peacock collection. There are no 
known accession or other records indicating when or by whom this 
collection was deposited at the Historical Society of Saginaw County. 
Some of the archeological materials in the Peacock collection are known 
to have been collected from various sites in Saginaw County, MI, and 
the same is probably true for the human remains. However, no notes or 
other documentation describing the circumstances of discovery of the 
human remains are known to exist. The fragmentary human remains are 
determined to be Native American based on their being part of a larger 
collection of archeological materials comprised primarily of 
prehistoric Native American artifacts. No associated funerary objects 
are present.

Determinations Made by the Historical Society of Saginaw County, Inc.

    Officials of the Historical Society of Saginaw County, Inc. have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice

[[Page 9827]]

are Native American based on their being part of a larger collection of 
archeological materials comprised primarily of prehistoric Native 
American artifacts.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of two 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 final judgments of the Indian Claims 
Commission or the Court of Federal Claims, the land from which the 
Native American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of 
the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan.
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains were removed 
is the aboriginal land of The Consulted and Invited Tribes.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains may be to The Consulted and Invited Tribes.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    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 should submit a written request with information
