The human remains were removed by a private party and were donated to the museum in 1950 (acc. # 100LC). They belong to an adult male (cat. # 11–262). No known individuals were identified. The two associated funerary objects are one partial bone club and fragments of one elk maxillary. The human remains are reasonably believed to be of Native American ancestry based on their archeological context. Historical documents, ethnographic sources, and oral history indicate that the Bob Creek site lies near the territorial boundary between the Alsea and the Siuslaw peoples. Both cultural groups have occupied the region since pre-contact times. Based on information obtained through consultation, the human remains are identified as Alsea. The Alsea are members or the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon.

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 University of 
Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History, Eugene, OR. The human 
remains and associated funerary object were removed from Purdy Mound at 
Bob Creek, Lane County, OR.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's 
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). 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 
University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History 
professional staff in consultation with representatives of the 
Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon (previously listed as 
the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Reservation); Confederated Tribes 
of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians; Confederated Tribes of 
the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon; and the Coquille Indian Tribe 
(previously listed as the Coquille Tribe of Oregon), hereafter referred 
to as ``The Consulted Tribes.''

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1950, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from Purdy Mound at Bob Creek in Lane County, OR. The 
human remains were removed by a private party and were donated to the 
museum in 1950 (acc. # 100LC). They belong to an adult male (cat. # 11-
262). No known individuals were identified. The two associated funerary 
objects are one partial bone club and fragments of one elk maxillary.
    The human remains are reasonably believed to be of Native American 
ancestry based on their archeological context. Historical documents, 
ethnographic sources, and oral history indicate that the Bob Creek site 
lies near the territorial boundary between the Alsea and the Siuslaw 
peoples. Both cultural groups have occupied the region since pre-
contact times. Based on information obtained through consultation, the 
human remains are identified as Alsea. The Alsea are members or the 
Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon.

Determinations Made by the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and 
Cultural History

    Officials of the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and 
Cultural History have determined that:
     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(3)(A), the two 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), 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 
Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon (previously listed as 
the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Reservation).

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 and associated 
funerary objects should submit a written request with information in
