Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 234 / Friday, December 4, 2020 / Notices • At the time of the early colonial period, the area encompassing Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay was occupied by the Timucua, a Muskogean (or, alternatively, a Siouan or Arawakanspeaking) group (Milanich 2004). After 1595, with the expansion of the Spanish mission system in La Florida, the Timucua became actively subject to the Spanish Crown. By the early 18th century a combination of disease, forced relocation by the Spanish, and enslavement had reduced the Timucua population to a few hundred. The reduction of Timucua numbers between the 16th and 18th centuries allowed for the expansion of other Muskogean peoples into the region. The terms of the Treaty of Augusta, signed in 1763 (a corollary to the Treaty of Paris ending the Seven Years War), ceded the Georgia coast, including what is currently St. Marys, GA, from the Creek Indians to the British Crown. Subsequently, the Treaty of 1790 and the Treaty of Colerain (1796) ceded additional lands by the Creek in Georgia and elsewhere to the United States. Consequently, the land from which the Native American human remains were removed is the aboriginal land of Creek peoples, including the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians; Poarch Band of Creeks (previously listed as Poarch Band of Creek Indians of Alabama); Seminole Tribe of Florida (previously listed as Seminole Tribe of Florida (Dania, Big Cypress, Brighton, Hollywood & Tampa Reservations)); The Chickasaw Nation; The Muscogee (Creek) Nation; The Seminole Nation of Oklahoma; and the Thlopthlocco Tribal Town (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes’’). • Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1), the disposition of the human remains 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 should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Dr. John Calabrese, United States Navy, Navy Region Southeast, Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Jacksonville, FL 32212, telephone (904) 542–6985, email john.calabrese@ navy.mil, by January 4, 2021. After that date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the human remains to The Tribes may proceed. The Department of the Navy, Navy Region Southeast is responsible for notifying The Consulted Tribes that this notice has been published.

This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3).

Most of the individuals are represented by a very small number of bones, and because the digs were not well documented, the age and the sex of the individuals were not recorded. No known individuals were identified. The one associated funerary object is one set of unidentified animal bones. Between July and October 1913, human remains representing, at minimum, seven individuals were removed from sites CA–HUM–33, and CA–HUM–37, near the Mad River Slough, in Humboldt County, CA. These human remains were collected by Llewellyn Loud, who was working on an ethnogeographic and archeological survey of the Wiyot people under the direction of Alfred Kroeber. The human remains were accessioned on November 6, 1913. No associated funerary objects are present. Most of the sites around Humboldt Bay date to the creation of the Bay, approximately 5000–7000 years ago. According to archeological evidence, Wiyot oral tradition, and the written historical record, the Wiyot Tribe has been present in this area since before the creation of Humboldt Bay.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
University of California Berkeley professional staff in consultation 
with representatives of the Wiyot Tribe, California (previously listed

History and Description of the Remains

    In the early 20th century, human remains representing, at minimum, 
14 individuals were removed from sites CA-HUM-68, CA-HUM-33, CA-HUM-23, 
and CA-HUM-112 in Humboldt County, CA. These human remains were 
collected by H.H. Stuart, an amateur archeologist based in Eureka, CA,

1931. Most of the individuals are represented by a very small number of 
bones, and because the digs were not well documented, the age and the 
sex of the individuals were not recorded. No known individuals were 
identified. The one associated funerary object is one set of 
unidentified animal bones.
    Between July and October 1913, human remains representing, at 
minimum, seven individuals were removed from sites CA-HUM-33, and CA-
HUM-37, near the Mad River Slough, in Humboldt County, CA. These human 
remains were collected by Llewellyn Loud, who was working on an 
ethnogeographic and archeological survey of the Wiyot people under the 
direction of Alfred Kroeber. The human remains were accessioned on 
November 6, 1913. No associated funerary objects are present.
    Most of the sites around Humboldt Bay date to the creation of the

evidence, Wiyot oral tradition, and the written historical record, the 
Wiyot Tribe has been present in this area since before the creation of
