History and Description of the Cultural Items In December 1899, two unassociated funerary objects were removed from graves at the Chevelon site in Navajo County, AZ. The items were removed by J.A. Burt, an employee of the Field Museum, in the winter of 1899–1900 as part of an excavation sponsored by the Museum. The two unassociated funerary objects are one painted, corrugated ceramic jar and one painted ceramic bowl. Chevelon was occupied from around A.D. 1250 until A.D. 1450. Based on archeological research, scholarly research, oral histories, consultation, and museum records, Chevelon is affiliated with the Hopi Tribe of Arizona and the Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico. The items described above were determined to be unassociated funerary objects based on J.A. Burt’s own notes, which indicate the grave from which he removed each item. Determinations Made by the Field Museum Officials of the Field Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the two cultural items described above 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 and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the unassociated funerary objects and the Hopi Tribe of Arizona and the Zuni Tribe of the Zuni Reservation, New Mexico.
