History and Description of the Remains On July 15, 2014, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from their resting spot in Cheboygan, MI. MSP Officer Gaylord was dispatched to a private residence in Cheboygan, MI, following the report of a possible bone found laying between the driveway and the shoulder of the roadway. Upon arrival, the officer examined the human remains and sent a photo to the Mclaren Hospital, which determined that it was human. The bone is approximately 12 inches long with a cut/slot in the ball/ shoulder end and a hole in the elbow end. The bone was transferred to Dr. Todd Fenton and his then student Caitlin Vogelsberg for analysis. They concluded the bone—a humerus—was prehistoric Native American in origin, based on FORDISC 3.1 (Jantz and Ousley 2005) and a five-way discriminant function analysis algorithm. The human remains are probably female, based on epicondylar breadth, maximum length, and vertical head diameter (Dittrick and Suchey 1986), and belong to an adult over the age of 15, based on epiphyseal fusion (Baker, Dupras, and Tocheri 2005). There is noted slight osteoarthritic lipping on the humeral head border (Ortner 2003). The stature was calculated on FORDISC as well, noting the individual to be 60.9–67.0 inches tall. Following analysis, the human remains (MSP073–000–3548–14) were returned to MSP custody. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Determinations Made by the Michigan State Police Officials of the Michigan State Police have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice are Native American based on FORDSIC 3.1 (Jantz and Ousley 2005) software, which uses a five-way discriminant function analysis algorithm. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual 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 E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1 32780 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 131 / Tuesday, July 9, 2019 / Notices the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin; Bay Mills Indian Community, Michigan; Chippewa Cree Indians of the Rocky Boy’s Reservation, Montana (previously listed as the Chippewa-Cree Indians of the Rocky Boy’s Reservation, Montana); Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, Michigan; Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, Michigan; Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Michigan; Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, Michigan; Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, Minnesota (Six component reservations: Bois Forte Band (Nett Lake); Fond du Lac Band; Grand Portage Band; Leech Lake Band; Mille Lacs Band; White Earth Band); Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians, Minnesota; Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan; Sault Ste.

History and Description of the Remains

    On July 15, 2014, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from their resting spot in Cheboygan, MI. MSP 
Officer Gaylord was dispatched to a private residence in Cheboygan, MI, 
following the report of a possible bone found laying between the 
driveway and the shoulder of the roadway. Upon arrival, the officer 
examined the human remains and sent a photo to the Mclaren Hospital, 
which determined that it was human. The bone is approximately 12 inches 
long with a cut/slot in the ball/shoulder end and a hole in the elbow 
end. The bone was transferred to Dr. Todd Fenton and his then student 
Caitlin Vogelsberg for analysis. They concluded the bone--a humerus--
was prehistoric Native American in origin, based on FORDISC 3.1 (Jantz 
and Ousley 2005) and a five-way discriminant function analysis 
algorithm. The human remains are probably female, based on epicondylar 
breadth, maximum length, and vertical head diameter (Dittrick and 
Suchey 1986), and belong to an adult over the age of 15, based on 
epiphyseal fusion (Baker, Dupras, and Tocheri 2005). There is noted 
slight osteoarthritic lipping on the humeral head border (Ortner 2003). 
The stature was calculated on FORDISC as well, noting the individual to 
be 60.9-67.0 inches tall. Following analysis, the human remains 
(MSP073-000-3548-14) were returned to MSP custody. No known individuals 
were identified. No associated funerary objects are present.

    Officials of the Michigan State Police have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice are Native American based on FORDSIC 3.1 (Jantz and 
Ousley 2005) software, which uses a five-way discriminant function

in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual 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.

Native American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of
