The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:40 Nov 18, 2020 Jkt 253001 Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains objects was made by the University of California Berkeley professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Klamath Tribes and the Modoc Nation (previously listed as The Modoc Tribe of Oklahoma). History and Description of the Remains Sometime prior to 1901, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed by Ernest C. Bonner from an unknown location somewhere in Modoc County, CA. These human remains, which are in a fragmentary state, form part of the ‘‘older museums collection.’’ No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. As the human remains are listed as coming from a Modoc Grave in Modoc County, CA, cultural affiliation is based on archeological and historical research. In 1913, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from Goose Lake in Modoc County, CA. These human remains were collected by H. H. Stuart from a burial ground located near a small dry run into the lake that covered one acre. The human remains are in a fragmentary state. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, eight individuals were removed from Goose Lake in Modoc County, CA, by H. H. Stuart. Stuart collected the human remains from the bed of the lake. In 1931, the human remains were accessioned by the University. The human remains are in a fragmentary state. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown time, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from the shore of Goose Lake in Modoc County, CA. The human remains were collected by the father of Dolores Bunyard, who donated them to the University in 1945. The human remains are in a fragmentary state. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Goose Lake lies within the traditional territory of the Klamath Tribes. Cultural affiliation is based on archeological and historical research. In August 1954, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed by Gordon L. PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73745 Grosscup and Robert J. Squier from a burial on the shore of Copic Island in Lower Klamath Lake, Siskiyou County, CA. The remains were accessioned by the University in the same year. The human remains are in a fragmentary state. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Copic Island lies within the traditional territory of the Klamath Tribes. Cultural affiliation is based on archeological and historical research. On August 4, 1925, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were left outside of Room 5 of the anthropology building at the University of California Berkeley. A note accompanying the human remains stated ‘‘Klamath Falls Indian.’’ No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The exact location where this individual was discovered is unknown. Cultural affiliation is based on the documentation accompanying the human remains. Determinations made by the University of California, Berkeley Officials of the University of California, Berkeley have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 14 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 Klamath Tribes. Additional Requestors and Disposition Lineal descendants or 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 should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Dr. Thomas Torma, NAGPRA Liaison, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, University of California Berkeley, 119 California Hall, Berkeley, CA 94720–1500, telephone (510) 672–5388, email t.torma@berkeley.edu, by December 21, 2020. After that date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the human remains to the Klamath Tribes may proceed. The University of California Berkeley is responsible for notifying the Klamath Tribes and the Modoc Nation (previously listed as The Modoc Tribe of Oklahoma) that this notice has been published.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains objects was made by the 
University of California Berkeley professional staff in consultation 
with representatives of the Klamath Tribes and the Modoc Nation 
(previously listed as The Modoc Tribe of Oklahoma).

History and Description of the Remains

    Sometime prior to 1901, human remains representing, at minimum, two 
individuals were removed by Ernest C. Bonner from an unknown location 
somewhere in Modoc County, CA. These human remains, which are in a 
fragmentary state, form part of the ``older museums collection.'' No 
known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    As the human remains are listed as coming from a Modoc Grave in 
Modoc County, CA, cultural affiliation is based on archeological and 
historical research.
    In 1913, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from Goose Lake in Modoc County, CA. These human remains 
were collected by H. H. Stuart from a burial ground located near a 
small dry run into the lake that covered one acre. The human remains 
are in a fragmentary state. No known individual was identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, eight 
individuals were removed from Goose Lake in Modoc County, CA, by H. H. 
Stuart. Stuart collected the human remains from the bed of the lake. In 
1931, the human remains were accessioned by the University. The human 
remains are in a fragmentary state. No known individuals were 
identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    At an unknown time, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from the shore of Goose Lake in Modoc County, 
CA. The human remains were collected by the father of Dolores Bunyard, 
who donated them to the University in 1945. The human remains are in a 
fragmentary state. No known individual was identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.
    Goose Lake lies within the traditional territory of the Klamath 
Tribes. Cultural affiliation is based on archeological and historical 
research.
    In August 1954, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed by Gordon L. Grosscup and Robert J. Squier from 
a burial on the shore of Copic Island in Lower Klamath Lake, Siskiyou 
County, CA. The remains were accessioned by the University in the same 
year. The human remains are in a fragmentary state. No known individual 
was identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    Copic Island lies within the traditional territory of the Klamath 
Tribes. Cultural affiliation is based on archeological and historical 
research.
    On August 4, 1925, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were left outside of Room 5 of the anthropology building at 
the University of California Berkeley. A note accompanying the human 
remains stated ``Klamath Falls Indian.'' No known individual was 
identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    The exact location where this individual was discovered is unknown. 
Cultural affiliation is based on the documentation accompanying the 
human remains.

Determinations made by the University of California, Berkeley

    Officials of the University of California, Berkeley have determined 
that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 14 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 Klamath Tribes.
