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 museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains. 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 Kansas State Historical Society professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, Oklahoma [previously listed as Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma]; Kaw Nation, Oklahoma; Northern Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, Montana; and The Osage Nation [previously listed as Osage Tribe] (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Consulted Tribes’’). History and Description of the Remains On June 30, 2014, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from 114 South Scott Street, St. Francis, Cheyenne County, KS. The human remains were found in a home-made coffin located in a building that had recently been purchased by an individual. Cheyenne County Kansas Sheriff Cody Beeson was notified of the discovery, whereupon he, Undersheriff Rodriquez, KBI agent Mark Kendrick, Deputy Coroner Dr. Mary Beth Miller, and Melvin Coffer visited the site. Coffer suspected that the skeletal remains had been used in ceremonies performed by the Oddfellows. Sheriff Cody Beeson took possession of the human remains and contacted Robert J. Hoard, Kansas State Archeologist. At Hoard’s request, on June 30, 2014, Sheriff Cody transferred the human remains to Hoard. They arrived at the Kansas State Historical Society on July 17, 2014. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remains include the major parts of a human skeleton in fair condition, but evidence of weathering suggests the remains had been exposed to the open for an unknown period of time. Osteological analysis by Michael Finnegan, Ph.D., D–ABFA indicates the remains belong to a female, 35–40 years of age, and morphological attributes of the cranium and femur indicate Native American ancestry. Because of the weathering of the elements, it is believed that the human remains were E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1
