Hereafter, all the Indian Tribes and groups listed above are referred to as ‘‘The Consulted and Invited Tribes and Groups.’’ History and Description of the Remains In 1951, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from Indian Wells (SBCM–20; CA–RIV–64) in Riverside County, CA, during a survey by the Archaeological Survey Association of Southern California. The age and sex of this individual are unknown. No known individual was identified. The one associated funerary object is one lot of charcoal. In 1898, evidence for the existence of cremations, a workshop, and kilns was found at CA–RIV–64, and in 1933–35, G. Smith attested to the presence of cremations when he recorded the site. As no units or stratigraphical data were recorded in 1951, there is little information to establish a time-period for these human remains. Artifacts recovered from the site, though, point to a primarily protohistoric presence, with some earlier and later occupations. Ethnohistoric evidence indicates that the area around Indian Wells was occupied by the Cahuilla Tribe during the prehistoric and protohistoric period, and this area has traditionally been identified as Cahuilla ancestral territory. When Cahuilla peopled the Coachella Valley, Indian Wells was the seat from which their leader, Sungrey, exercised authority. Today, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, California has a conservation easement on an area of CA–RIV–64 (a burial dune). In 1982, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from Seven Palms Ranch (SBCM–173; CA–RIV–1825, CA–RIV– 1827) in Riverside County, CA, by Albert A. Webb Associates. The firm’s 1982 site report states, ‘‘SP 6 is potentially the largest site on the property. SP 6 incorporates an area 50 meters wide by 250 meters long . . . exposing ceramics, FAR, debitage, bone, and large metate fragments . . . . Of significance, a suspicious bone fragment collected from the site for identification E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1
