determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the 
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native 
American human remains and the associated funerary object. The National

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
California State University, Sacramento professional staff. The Santa 
Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, 
California as well as three non-federally recognized Indian groups--the 
Barbareno Chumash Council, the Coastal Band of Chumash Indians, and the 
San Luis Obispo County Chumash--were contacted by California State 
University, Sacramento several times, but ultimately, no in-person 
consultation was requested. Hereafter, all the above entities are 
referred to as ``The Tribe and Groups.''

History and Description of the Remains

    On March 8, 1936, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from Sudden #1 site in Santa Barbara, CA, by 
Anthony Zallio, a private collector associated with Sacramento City 
College. While the exact location of this site is unknown, Zallio was 
with a party of professional and amateur archeologists visiting sites 
in the vicinity of Casmalia and Happy Canyon, located approximately 
four to ten miles east and northeast of Santa Ynez. In 1951, Zallio's 
estate posthumously donated the collection to the Department of 
Anthropology at Sacramento State College, California (now California 
State University, Sacramento). The individual is represented by a 
cranium and belongs to a male between 30-40 years old. No known 
individual was identified. The one associated funerary object is a 
small Olivella shell bead.
    No information about the Sudden #1 site was located. The lack of 
temporally diagnostic associated funerary objects makes it impossible 
to date the human remains. The Casmalia and Happy Canyon areas are 
within the aboriginal territory of the Yneze[ntilde]o Chumash. Recent 
archeological research suggests that the Chumash have been in the 
region since at least the early Holocene.

determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described 
in this notice is 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.
     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 associated funerary object and the Santa 
Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, 
California.

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 and this associated
