object is a mussel shell.
    In 1971, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from archeological site 25HK16 in Hitchcock County, NE. 
The human remains were discovered by a private individual eroding into 
the Swanson Reservoir. The human remains represent an elderly female. 
No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects 
are present.
    The human remains listed in this notice were determined to be 
Native American based on archeological context, burial patterns, 
osteology, or associated diagnostic artifacts. Based on oral tradition 
and archeological evidence, the Bureau of Reclamation and History 
Nebraska have determined there is a relationship of shared group 
identity that can be reasonably traced between the human remains and 
associated funerary objects listed in this notice and the Native 
American people that are represented today by 37 Indian Tribes.
