DATES: 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 funerary object should submit a written request with information in support of the request to the California State University, Sacramento at the address in this notice by May 24, 2021. ADDRESSES: Dr. Dianne Hyson, Dean of the College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies, California State University, Sacramento, 6000 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95819–6109, telephone (916) 278–6504, email dhyson@csus.edu. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the completion of an inventory of human remains and an associated funerary object under the control of the California State University, Sacramento, CA. The human remains and associated funerary object were removed from Sudden #1 site, Santa Barbara, CA. 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 and the associated funerary object. 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 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 inperson 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:20 Apr 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 Ynezen˜o Chumash. Recent archeological research suggests that the Chumash have been in the region since at least the early Holocene. Determinations Made by California State University, Sacramento Officials of the California State University, Sacramento have 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 funerary object should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Dr. Dianne Hyson, Dean of the College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies, California State University, Sacramento, 6000 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95819–6109, telephone (916) 278– PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21345 6504, email dhyson@csus.edu, by May 24, 2021. After that date, if no additional requestors have come forward, transfer of control of the human remains and associated funerary object to the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, California may proceed. If joined to a request from the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, California, any of the following nonfederally recognized Indian groups may receive transfer of control of the human remains and associated funerary object: The Barbareno Chumash Council, the Coastal Band of Chumash Indians, and the San Luis Obispo County Chumash.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate cultural items under the 
control of the California State University, Sacramento, CA, that meet 
the definition of unassociated funerary objects under 25 U.S.C. 3001.

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    In 1935 or 1936, two cultural items were removed from Happy Canyon 
in Santa Barbara County, CA, by Anthony Zallio, a private collector 
associated with Sacramento City College. While the exact site location 
is unknown, Zallio was with a party of professional and amateur 
archeologists visiting sites in the vicinity of Casmalia and Happy 
Canyon, which is 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 
two unassociated funerary objects are one modified bone tube with 
adhered asphaltum and inlaid Olivella tiny saucer (Type G1) shell beads 
and one ochre sample.
    Happy Canyon is within the aboriginal territory of the 
Yneze[ntilde]o Chumash. The objects were designated as unassociated 
funerary objects because associated documentation indicates that they 
were found in association with a burial and the location of the human 
remains is unknown. Recent archeological research suggests that the 
Chumash have been in the region since at least the early Holocene.

Determinations Made by the California State University, Sacramento

    Officials of the California State University, Sacramento have 
determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the two 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 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 claim 
these cultural items should submit a written request with information 
in support of the claim to Dr. Dianne Hyson, Dean of the College of 
Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies, California State 
University, Sacramento, 6000 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95819-6109, 
telephone (916) 278-6504, email [email protected], by May 24, 2021. After 
that date, if no additional claimants have come forward, transfer of 
control of the unassociated funerary objects to the Santa Ynez Band of 
Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa Ynez Reservation, California and 
the joint requestors--the Barbareno Chumash Council, the Coastal Band 
of Chumash Indians, and the San Luis Obispo County Chumash, which are 
non-federally recognized Indian groups--may proceed.
    The California State University, Sacramento is responsible for 
notifying the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians of the Santa 
Ynez Reservation, California and the joint requestors--the Barbareno 
Chumash Council, the Coastal Band of Chumash Indians, and the San Luis 
Obispo County Chumash, which are non-federally recognized Indian 
groups--that this notice has been published.
