Download as PDF 71094 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 216 / Friday, November 6, 2020 / Notices European artist who immigrated to the United States in the 1890s and traveled throughout the Midwest, acquired these two items. The Thomas Gilcrease Foundation purchased Lenders’ collection on June 7, 1950. Thomas Gilcrease transferred his collection to the City of Tulsa in 1955 and 1964. The unassociated funerary objects are two pairs of moccasins (accession numbers 84.425a–b and 84.426a–b). The moccasins were identified as Cheyenne in Gilcrease Museum’s records, and that affiliation was confirmed during consultation with the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma. Both pairs of moccasins are covered in dirt and show signs of having been buried. Moccasins are regularly buried with individuals. Determinations Made by the Gilcrease Museum Officials of the Gilcrease Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the five 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 Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma (previously listed as Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma). Additional Requestors and Disposition Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian Tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim these cultural items should submit a written request with information in support of the claim to Laura Bryant, Gilcrease Museum, 1400 North Gilcrease Museum Road, Tulsa, OK 74127, telephone (918) 596–2747, email laura-bryant@utulsa.edu, by December 7, 2020. After that date, if no additional claimants have come forward, transfer of control of the unassociated funerary objects to the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma (previously listed as Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma) may proceed. The Gilcrease Museum is responsible for notifying the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma (previously listed as Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma) that this notice has been published.
