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 Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology professional staff on behalf of the Wistar Institute in consultation with representatives of the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Montana. History and Description of the Remains Sometime between July 6 and July 15, 1900, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals (37946 and 37947) were removed from box graves on the prairie outside of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Valley County, MT, by Robert Stewart Culin, Curator of the American and General Ethnology Section of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (1899–1903). Culin was leading a collecting expedition to the American West for the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology funded by John Wanamaker, a Philadelphia businessman and philanthropist. From 1900 to 1915, the human remains were housed at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology E:\FR\FM\27NON1.SGM 27NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 27, 2019 / Notices and Anthropology. On January 11, 1915, the human remains were donated to the Wistar Institute of Philadelphia (15525 and 15526). The human remains were transferred to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology on a long-term loan in 1956 (L–1011–54 and L–1011–211), where they are currently housed. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The physical condition of the human remains and the collector’s description about the circumstance surrounding their removal indicate that the remains were of relatively recent historical origin at the time of removal. The human remains have been identified as Native American based on the specific cultural and geographic attribution identified in Museum records. Museum documentation and collector records identify the two sets of human remains as ‘‘Dakota, Sioux.’’ The Dakota, Sioux descendants in Montana are represented by the present-day Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Reservation, Montana. Determinations Made by the Wistar Institute and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology Officials of the Wistar Institute, through its agent the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, have determined that: • 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(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Montana.
