History and Description of the Remains In 1978, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from La Plata County, CO. Individuals were collecting antlers on private land when they found the human remains on the surface of the Animas Valley, along the western cliff edges.

The human remains consist of a cranium with dentition and a partial postcranial skeleton (R scapula, pelvic girdle, L femur, L tibia, and several ribs), of an adult male 40–55 years of age whose cranial and dental characteristics are highly consistent with Native American ancestry. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Sometime in the 1960s, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the vicinity of Berndt Hall on the Fort Lewis College campus in Durango, CO. The human remains of the individual, assigned catalog number FLC 609, consist of a cranium with dentition belonging to an adult male 35–45 years of age whose cranial characteristics are consistent with Native American ancestry. Based on other known archeological contexts from the immediate area, the notes accompanying the human remains state that they could plausibly be dated to BMIII to PI. There is no additional information regarding the circumstances under which the human remains arrived in the collection of the Department of Anthropology at Fort Lewis College. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Sometime in the mid- to later twentieth century a private landowner, Milo Dearien, came across the human remains of one individual during construction on 6440 County Road 203, north of Durango, in the north Animas Valley. Dearien transferred the human remains to Fort Lewis College in the mid-1980s. The human remains, consist of a cranium lacking teeth, belong to an adult female 30–45 years of age. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on the nature and location of the sites, the manner of burial, the treatment of the crania, the Native American biological characteristics of the crania, and the oral histories of the Ute peoples regarding life and death in the Durango region, the human remains in this notice are identified as Ute. Determinations Made by Fort Lewis College Officials of Fort Lewis College 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(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27655 remains and the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe (previously listed as the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah).

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1978, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from La Plata County, CO. Individuals were collecting 
antlers on private land when they found the human remains on the 
surface of the Animas Valley, along the western cliff edges. Some 
scattered fragments found on the cliff suggest that the individual had 
originally been placed in a crevice in the cliff face. La Plata County 
Sheriff's deputies called to the scene turned over the majority of the 
bones to Fort Lewis College, where they were assigned catalog number 
FLC 500. The human remains consist of a cranium with dentition and a 
partial postcranial skeleton (R scapula, pelvic girdle, L femur, L 
tibia, and several ribs), of an adult male 40-55 years of age whose 
cranial and dental characteristics are highly consistent with Native 
American ancestry. No known individuals were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    Sometime in the 1960s, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the vicinity of Berndt Hall on the Fort 
Lewis College campus in Durango, CO. The human remains of the 
individual, assigned catalog number FLC 609, consist of a cranium with 
dentition belonging to an adult male 35-45 years of age whose cranial 
characteristics are consistent with Native American ancestry. Based on 
other known archeological contexts from the immediate area, the notes 
accompanying the human remains state that they could plausibly be dated 
to BMIII to PI. There is no additional information regarding the 
circumstances under which the human remains arrived in the collection 
of the Department of Anthropology at Fort Lewis College. No known 
individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    Sometime in the mid- to later twentieth century a private 
landowner, Milo Dearien, came across the human remains of one 
individual during construction on 6440 County Road 203, north of 
Durango, in the north Animas Valley. Dearien transferred the human 
remains to Fort Lewis College in the mid-1980s. The human remains, 
consist of a cranium lacking teeth, belong to an adult female 30-45 
years of age. No known individuals were identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    Based on the nature and location of the sites, the manner of 
burial, the treatment of the crania, the Native American biological 
characteristics of the crania, and the oral histories of the Ute 
peoples regarding life and death in the Durango region, the human 
remains in this notice are identified as Ute.

Determinations Made by Fort Lewis College

    Officials of Fort Lewis College 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(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the 
Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe 
(previously listed as the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain 
Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah).

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    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 should submit a 
written request with information in support of the request to Dr. 
Kathleen Fine-Dare, NAGPRA Tribal Liaison, Fort Lewis College, Office 
of the President, 1000 Rim Drive, Durango, CO 81301, telephone (970) 
247-7438, email [email protected], by July 15, 2019. After that 
date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of 
control of the human remains to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe of the 
Southern Ute Reservation, Colorado and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe 
(previously listed as the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain 
Reservation, Colorado, New Mexico & Utah) may proceed.
    Fort Lewis College is responsible for notifying The Tribes that 
this notice has been published.
