The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. SUMMARY: History and Description of the Cultural Items In the mid-to late nineteenth century, four cultural items were removed from undisclosed sites in unknown counties in southeastern Alaska. Documentation regarding their removal and/or subsequent transfers prior to their accession into the Eiteljorg Museum’s collection is limited. Preceding the foundation of the Eiteljorg Museum, in June 1989, by Harrison Eiteljorg, these four cultural items were part of the PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 personal collection of Harrison Eiteljorg. The four cultural items are one Oyster Catcher Rattle, one Shaman’s staff, one Clan or Shaman’s Hat, and one Grave Guardian or Shaman Spirit Helper. According to museum records, each of these four cultural items are identified as Tlingit. The Oyster Catcher Rattle was previously owned by John A. Buxton of Shango Galleries, and was purchased by Harrison Eiteljorg in November 15, 1979. The rattle, dated circa 1870, is constructed from a single piece of wood, bears black, red, and light blue pigments. It has been halved and likely hollowed out to hold what may be seeds used to create its rattling sound. A leather cord is tied at one side of the rattle. The top of the rattle represents a long-billed bird. Near the handle is a wolf spirit with a protruding tongue. The underside is carved to depict what may be a hawk. The Shaman’s Staff, dated circa 1880, was purchased by Harrison Eiteljorg from Tom Julian, in June 1980. It was originally owned by Howard Roloff. It is made of carved wood, the top of which is ornamented with a killer whale design. The Shaman’s Hat, dated circa 1800, in the form of a raven on top and a frog on the front, is constructed out of wood, semi-tanned hide, iron or copper alloy, fur, sinew, and paint. It was purchased by Harrison Eiteljorg from Sotheby’s, Parke-Bernet in April 1981. The Shaman Spirit Helper, dated circa 1850, was purchased by Harrison Eiteljorg from Richard Rasso in June 1987. It is made of cedar, pigmented in red and black, and is adorned with human hair. It depicts a shaman holding a knife. The top of the knife is carved to resemble a facial expression. During consultation the Central Council of the Tlingit & Haida Tribes identified the Oyster Catcher Rattle (Looga´n Sheishoo), Shaman’s Staff (t’ Woodzakaayı´), Shaman’s Hat, and Shaman Spirit Helper (ye´ik) as cultural items used only by a shaman (ı´FD;t’). Shaman implements would have been interred with a shaman. As it is against Tlingit custom to grant permission to disturb or disinter a shaman’s grave the Central Council believes that these four cultural items could have only been collected by removing them from a grave, and therefore, they are unassociated funerary objects. Historic and contemporary scholarly research reiterate that traditionally, Tlingit shamans were buried with their accoutrements such as rattles, staffs, hats, and spirit helpers. As indicated through museum records and consultation with the Central Council, E:\FR\FM\03JNN1.SGM 03JNN1
