In 1968, these items were given to the Bixby Memorial Free Library by Ernst Bilhuber, a Euro-American collector of Native American objects and resident of the Vergennes area. The three items are one bowl portion of a Bird Effigy Pipe (inventory number 1968.1.20), one Fish Effigy Bowl (inventory number 1968.1.134), and one Chickasaw Red Bird Effigy Footed Water Jug (inventory number 1968.1.140). The Bird Effigy Pipe is made of brown sandstone. The pipe is carved to resemble the head of a bird, and the bowl is carved into the top of the head. A stem for smoking would have been attached to the bird’s neck. The Fish Effigy Bowl is made of Mississippian grayware. The object is round with a fish head protruding from one end and fish tail protruding from the opposite side. There are also several ‘‘fins’’ protruding from the sides of the bowl. The Chickasaw people have a link to the southeastern United States, including Tennessee, as documented in the Treaty of 1816. During consultation with representatives of The Chickasaw Nation, the three objects listed in this notice were recognized by the Chickasaw team as funerary in nature, and similar to previously repatriated associated funerary objects that had been removed from ancestral burials in their homelands, which encompass the Tennessee area. Consequently, the Bixby Memorial Free Library has determined that a relationship of shared group identity can reasonably be traced between The Chickasaw Nation and the Muskogean linguistic cultures connected with the items listed in this notice. Determinations Made by the Bixby Memorial Free Library Officials of the Bixby Memorial Free Library have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the three 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:37 Apr 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 Chickasaw Nation.

Introduction On April 12, 2017, the Assistant Administrator, Diversion Control Division, Drug Enforcement Administration (hereinafter, DEA or Government), issued an Order to Show Cause (hereinafter, OSC) to Jennifer L. St. Croix, M.D. (hereinafter, Respondent), of Covington, Tennessee. OSC, at 1. The OSC proposed the revocation of Respondent’s DEA Certificate of Registration No. FS2669868 and the denial of ‘‘any pending application to modify or renew such registration pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 823(f) and 824(a)(4) for the reason that . . . [her] continued registration is inconsistent with the public interest as that term is defined in 21 U.S.C. 823(f).’’ Id. The substantive grounds for the proceeding, as alleged in the OSC, are that Respondent ‘‘ ‘committed such acts PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 as would render . . . [her] registration . . . inconsistent with the public interest.’ See 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(4).’’ Id. at 3. Specifically, the OSC alleged that Respondent violated the commitments she made to DEA when she executed a three-year Memorandum of Agreement (hereinafter, MOA) effective June 25, 2011. Id. at 2. According to the OSC, Respondent’s MOA commitments, to ‘‘abide by all Federal, State, and local laws and regulations pertaining to controlled substances’’ and to ‘‘maintain a log of all controlled substances prescribed, administered or dispensed to patients at . . . [her] registered premises or elsewhere, including call-in prescriptions, for review by DEA personnel at any time,’’ were what permitted her to maintain an unrestricted registration. Id. First, according to the OSC, Respondent continued to issue ‘‘prescriptions to individuals who are intimate or close acquaintances, and provided prescription drug logs to DEA that were noncompliant with the terms of the June 2011 MOA’’ due to the falsities included in ten of them.1 Id. The OSC also alleged that Respondent failed to maintain medical records pertaining to her prescribing of controlled substances, and that she prescribed controlled substances to an individual with whom she had a ‘‘romantic interaction.’’ Id. The authorities that the OSC listed for these allegations are 21 U.S.C. 843(a)(4)(A), 21 CFR 1306.04(a), Tenn. Code Ann. § 63–6–214(b)(1), Tenn. Code Ann. § 63–6–214(b)(12), Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs.

Second, the OSC alleged that Respondent failed to submit MOArequired prescription drug logs to DEA for six months even though ‘‘DEA’s subsequent review of prescription data revealed that . . . [she] issued controlled substance prescriptions during’’ those months.2 Id. at 3. The OSC cited 21 U.S.C. 823(f)(5) as the statutory basis for this allegation. Id. Third, according to the OSC, Respondent ‘‘stored controlled substances in an exterior storage shed at 1 The charged falsities were alleged to be in Respondent’s drug log submissions dated August, October, and November of 2012, February, May, June, July, October, and November of 2013, and January 2014.

    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 cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    Sometime before 1968, three cultural items were removed from 
Tennessee. In 1968, these items were given to the Bixby Memorial Free 
Library by Ernst Bilhuber, a Euro-American collector of Native American 
objects and resident of the Vergennes area. The three items are one 
bowl portion of a Bird Effigy Pipe (inventory number 1968.1.20), one 
Fish Effigy Bowl (inventory number 1968.1.134), and one Chickasaw Red 
Bird Effigy Footed Water Jug (inventory number 1968.1.140).
    The Bird Effigy Pipe is made of brown sandstone. The pipe is carved 
to resemble the head of a bird, and the bowl is carved into the top of 
the head. A stem for smoking would have been attached to the bird's 
neck. The Fish Effigy Bowl is made of Mississippian grayware. The 
object is round with a fish head protruding from one end and fish tail 
protruding from the opposite side. There are also several ``fins'' 
protruding from the sides of the bowl.
    The Chickasaw people have a link to the southeastern United States, 
including Tennessee, as documented in the Treaty of 1816. During 
consultation with representatives of The Chickasaw Nation, the three 
objects listed in this notice were recognized by the Chickasaw team as 
funerary in nature, and similar to previously repatriated associated 
funerary objects that had been removed from ancestral burials in their 
homelands, which encompass the Tennessee area. Consequently, the Bixby 
Memorial Free Library has determined that a relationship of shared 
group identity can reasonably be traced between The Chickasaw Nation 
and the Muskogean linguistic cultures connected with the items listed 
in this notice.

Determinations Made by the Bixby Memorial Free Library

    Officials of the Bixby Memorial Free Library have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the three 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 Chickasaw Nation.

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 Patricia Reid, Bixby Memorial Free Library, 
258 Main Street, Vergennes, VT 05491, telephone (802) 877-2211, email 
[email protected], by May 12, 2021. After that date, if no 
additional claimants have come forward, transfer of control of the 
unassociated funerary objects to The Chickasaw Nation may proceed.
    The Bixby Memorial Free Library is responsible for notifying The 
Chickasaw Nation that this notice has been published.
