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 Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from the Wickcliffe Mounds (15.0001/15BA4) site, Ballard County, KY. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3) and 43 CFR 10.11(d). 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 Michigan professional staff in consultation with representatives of The Chickasaw Nation and The Quapaw Tribe of Indians (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes’’). History and Description of the Human Remains Between 1932 and 1935, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed from the Wickcliffe Mounds site (15.0001/ 15BA4) in Ballard County, KY. The site is located near the junction of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Between 1932 and 1939, an amateur collector conducted extensive excavations in the area. On June 2, 1933, the collector donated to the UMMAA ceramic sherds noted as coming from burials. Human remains from the site were donated by the collector to the UMMAA in May of 1935. UMMAA records for these collections and their excavation are minimal. The two individuals are one adult of indeterminate age and sex with a possible underlying infection, and one perinate child. The burials have been dated to the Mississippian Period (A.D. 1000–1400) based on the associated funerary objects and chronometric dating. No known individuals were identified. The eight associated funerary objects are five lots of ceramic sherds, two lots of shell-tempered ceramic sherds, and one lot of various PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 archeological materials comprised of ceramic sherds, a possible lithic scraper, and a lithic flake.

Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by South Dakota State Archaeological Research Center (SARC) and USACE Omaha District professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota. History and Description of the Remains In 1964, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the Harmon Site, 39BO0206, in Bon Homme County, SD. The human remains were collected by James Howard and Robert Gant, archeologists from the University of South Dakota-Vermillion Museum, during a salvage excavation of a burial eroding out of the cutbank on the Gavins Point Reservoir. The human remains and funerary objects were stored at the South Dakota-Vermilion Museum, which housed SARC at the time, and then were transferred to the new SARC facility at Fort Meade, SD, in 1976. The majority of the human remains were reburied at site 39ST0015 in 1986. The following year, the SARC facility moved from Fort Meade, SD, to Rapid City, SD. During an inventory at SARC in 1992, a small bag containing post-cranial remains from the re-buried individual was found, along with the funerary objects that had not been reburied. No known individuals were identified. The five associated funerary objects are one faunal bone, one lithic biface, one lithic core fragment, one unmodified stone, and one lithic shatter piece.

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

    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's 
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3) and 
43 CFR 10.11(d). The determinations in this notice are the sole

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
University of Michigan professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of The Chickasaw Nation and The Quapaw Tribe of Indians 
(hereafter referred to as ``The Tribes'').

History and Description of the Human Remains

    Between 1932 and 1935, human remains representing, at minimum, two 
individuals were removed from the Wickcliffe Mounds site (15.0001/
15BA4) in Ballard County, KY. The site is located near the junction of 
the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Between 1932 and 1939, an amateur 
collector conducted extensive excavations in the area. On June 2, 1933, 
the collector donated to the UMMAA ceramic sherds noted as coming from 
burials. Human remains from the site were donated by the collector to 
the UMMAA in May of 1935. UMMAA records for these collections and their 
excavation are minimal. The two individuals are one adult of 
indeterminate age and sex with a possible underlying infection, and one 
perinate child. The burials have been dated to the Mississippian Period 
(A.D. 1000-1400) based on the associated funerary objects and 
chronometric dating. No known individuals were identified. The eight 
associated funerary objects are five lots of ceramic sherds, two lots 
of shell-tempered ceramic sherds, and one lot of various archeological 
materials comprised of ceramic sherds, a possible lithic scraper, and a 
lithic flake.

Determinations Made by the University of Michigan

    Officials of the University of Michigan have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice are Native American based on accession documentation and 
archeological context.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of two individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the eight 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), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and associated funerary objects and any present-day 
Indian Tribe.
     According to final judgments of the Indian Claims 
Commission or the Court of Federal Claims, the land from which the 
Native American human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed is the aboriginal land of The Chickasaw Nation.
     Treaties, Acts of Congress, or Executive Orders, indicate 
that the land from which the Native American human remains and 
associated funerary objects were removed is the aboriginal land of The 
Tribes.
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the 
human remains and associated funerary objects may be to The Tribes.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    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 support of the request to Dr. Ben 
Secunda, NAGPRA Project Manager, University of Michigan, Office of the 
Vice President for Research, 4080 Fleming Building, 503 South Thompson
