No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on the history of Peter Pratt’s research program and the provenience of the materials recovered from his multiple decades of excavations in central NY, these human remains were highly likely to have been donated during one of his excavations within Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga sites in Oswego, Onondaga, Cayuga, Madison, Wayne, and St. Lawrence Counties, NY. Such donations are commonly noted among Pratt’s field school materials. At an unknown date, human remains consisting, at minimum, of one individual were recovered from an unknown location. These human remains were transferred to SUNY Oswego as a result of one of Peter Pratt’s Field School projects. The human remains consist of one adult male. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Based on the history of Peter Pratt’s research program and the provenience of the materials recovered from his multiple decades of excavations in central NY, these human remains were recovered from one or several of the many field school projects undertaken by Peter Pratt within identified Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga sites within Oneida, Onondaga, and Cayuga sites in Oswego, Onondaga, Cayuga, Madison, Wayne, and St. Lawrence Counties, NY. Although labels were lost or misplaced over the five decades or so of excavations, these human remains were removed from Onondaga, Oneida, or Cayuga affiliated sites. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Determinations Made by the State University of New York at Oswego Officials of the State University of New York at Oswego 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 associated funerary objects and the Cayuga Nation; Oneida Indian Nation (previously listed as the Oneida Nation of New York); and the Onondaga Nation (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes’’).
