SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate cultural items under the control of the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Effigy Mounds National Monument, Harpers Ferry, IA, that meet the definition of unassociated funerary objects under 25 U.S.C. 3001. 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 Superintendent, Effigy Mounds National Monument. History and Description of the Cultural Items At an unknown date, three cultural items were removed from an unknown site, likely in Allamakee County, IA. It is not known how they came to be in collections at Effigy Mounds National Monument. Originally accessioned as a loan from a local collector, in 1985 the lender claimed they were not part of his collection. In 1986, human remains that had been collected with the objects were transferred to the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist for analysis. The remains were retained and reburied by the Office of the State Archaeologist under the authority of the 1976 Iowa Burial Law. The three unassociated funerary objects are two flakes and one sample of red ocher. In 1950, 112 cultural items were removed from a slumped talus deposit below the Hanging Rock Shelter, in E:\FR\FM\03AUN1.SGM 03AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 149 / Monday, August 3, 2020 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Allamakee County, IA, by NPS archeologist Paul Beaubien. The railroad had cut through the deposit, exposing human remains and artifacts. The human remains did not enter Effigy Mounds National Monument collections and their whereabouts is unknown. The 112 unassociated funerary objects are 110 pottery sherds and two fish bones. Sometime between 1958 and 1963, 277 cultural items were removed from the Waukon Junction Rockshelter in Allamakee County, IA, by unknown persons, probably as the site was being impacted by highway construction. In 1986, human remains collected with the objects were transferred to the Iowa Office of the State Archaeologist and retained under the authority of the 1976 Iowa Burial Law. The 277 unassociated funerary objects are one shell tool, 87 freshwater mussel shells, two bifaces, one flake, eight unmodified stones, 20 pottery sherds, four utilized flakes, one bone ornament, one modified flake, 147 faunal bones, one stone tool, two woodland variant Tama projectile points, one piece of shatter, and one bone awl. Based on archeological context, ethnographic information, and oral traditions the unassociated funerary objects described above are identified as belonging to the Woodland tradition. The Woodland tradition transitions into the Oneota tradition which is identified as being clearly ancestral to the HoChunk Nation of Wisconsin. Determinations Made by the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Effigy Mounds National Monument Officials of the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Effigy Mounds National Monument have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 392 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 Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin.
