Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Department of Anthropology, University of Alaska Anchorage professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Native Village of Point Hope. History and Description of the Remains In 1972, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from Point Hope in the North Slope Borough, AK. The human remains, consisting of nine bones, were collected from the surface of the ground near the airstrip in Point Hope, AK. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is a caribou metapodial (caribou lower leg bone). Point Hope, or Tikigaq, has been occupied for at least 2000 years, recent dates extend the occupation even earlier. This spit of land includes the sites of Tikigaq, Ipiutak, and Jabbertown, and the modern town of Point Hope. Because the ground is frozen much of the year, and the spit is a gravel bar, the dead were placed on the ground surface. Human elements frequently appear on the surface in the old town of Tikigaq, at the end of the airport runway. Oral tradition and archeological evidence identify the human remains as Inupiat. The Inupiat are descendants of the original people of Point Hope (Tikig˙aq), and still live there today. They are represented by the present-day Native Village of Point Hope. Determinations Made by the Department of Anthropology, University of Alaska Anchorage Officials of the Department of Anthropology, University of Alaska Anchorage 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 Alaska Native ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described in this notice is reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46039 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 Alaska Native human remains and associated funerary objects and the Native Village of Point Hope.
