SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains and 
associated funerary objects under the control of the Milwaukee Public 
Museum, Milwaukee, WI. The human remains and associated funerary 
objects were removed from southwestern KY.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's 
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3) and 
43 CFR 10.11(d). The determinations in this notice are the sole 
responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has 
control of the Native American human remains and associated funerary 
objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the 
determinations in this notice.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
Milwaukee Public Museum professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of The Chickasaw Nation and The Choctaw Nation of 
Oklahoma. The Quapaw Tribe of Indians were invited to consult but did 
not participate.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1938, human remains representing, at minimum, four adult 
individuals were removed from southwestern KY by T.M.N. Lewis 
(University of Tennessee archeology instructor) and donated to MPM. The 
age of individuals cannot be determinated. No known individuals were 
identified. The nine associated funerary objects are pottery sherds 
that approximately date to the Late Woodland/Mississippian time 
periods.

Determinations Made by the Milwaukee Public Museum

    Officials of the Milwaukee Public Museum have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice are Native American based on examination by two 
individuals with knowledge and training in identifying Native American 
human remains.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of four individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the nine 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 death rite or ceremony.
     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 associated funerary objects 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 and associated funerary objects were 
removed is the aboriginal land of The Chickasaw Nation; The Choctaw 
Nation of Oklahoma; and The Quapaw Tribe of Indians (hereafter referred 
to as ``The Tribes'').
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains and 
associated funerary objects were removed is the aboriginal land of The 
Tribes.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains and associated funerary objects may be to The 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 and associated funerary objects should submit a 
written request with information in support of the request to Dawn 
Scher Thomae, Milwaukee Public Museum, 800 W Wells Street, Milwaukee, 
WI 53233, telephone (414) 278-6157, email [email protected], by August 8,
