The disposition of this specimen will be arranged with Anthony Andreas, the Native American consultant of the project from the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Band.’’ The human remains—a mastoid process—belong to an individual of unknown age and sex. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. According to the Webb Associates report, settlement at Seven Palms Ranch dates from 1150 to 1876 A.D. Seven Palms oasis was abandoned in the 1870s, when the population moved several miles southwest to Palm Springs Station. This group was identified as the Havinakiktum (‘‘deep water hole’’) clan of the Coyote Moiety (Strong 1929:91), whose religious affiliation was with the Morongo groups. The people of Seven Palms are known as the Hav ve. Ethnohistoric evidence indicates that the area around Seven Palms Ranch was occupied by the Cahuilla tribe throughout prehistory, and the archeological record indicates Cahuilla presence in the protohistoric period. In recent times, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians filed a resolution on the village site with the Riverside County Assessor’s office. Determinations Made by the San Bernardino County Museum Personnel of the San Bernardino County Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of two individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the one object described in this notice 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. • 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 objects and the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, California; Augustine Band of Cahuilla Indians, California [previously listed as Augustine Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Augustine Reservation]; Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, California; Cahuilla Band of Indians [previously listed as Cahuilla Band of Mission Indians of the Cahuilla Reservation, California]; Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians, California [previously listed as Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla & Cupeno Indians of the Los Coyotes Reservation]; VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 Morongo Band of Mission Indians, California [previously listed as Morongo Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Morongo Reservation]; Ramona Band of Cahuilla, California [previously listed as Ramona Band or Village of Cahuilla Mission Indians of California]; Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians, California [previously listed as Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Santa Rosa Reservation]; and the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians, California [previously listed as TorresMartinez Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of California] (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Affiliated Tribes’’).

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 On October 4, 1957, during the course of digging a reservoir, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed from the El Casco Dam Property (SBCM–118; CA– SBR–179) in San Bernardino County, CA. At some point, the human remains were comingled. One of the individuals is a child whose identity is unknown. The other individual, an adult, is identified as Juan Antonio Costo by a SBCM label reading ‘‘Remains of Juan Antonio.’’ (When collected, the child’s bones might have been assumed to be those of Juan Antonio Costo.) The 32 associated funerary objects are one epaulette, two lots of fabric fragments, one lot of beads, one bell, two rings, four coins, four buttons, three lots of varied ceramic, one lot of micro beads, one lot of mixed beads, five nails, three lots of fragmented metal, one lot of buttons, one spoon, one metal cup fragment, and one military belt buckle and hardware. The remains of the adult identified as Juan Antonio Costo were found with the epaulette in situ. Juan Antonio Costo was the last Hereditary Chief of the Cahuilla. In 1851, he moved his band to the village VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 of Sahat’pa, in San Timoteo Canyon, where the El Casco Dam Property is located. Sahat’pa, a historic Cahuilla village and cemetery occupied by Mountain Cahuillas, remained under the leadership of Juan Antonio from 1851 until his death during the smallpox epidemic of early 1863. A SBCMA publication relates that an American General Bean gifted Juan Antonio many presents, including an officer’s army coat and epaulettes, ‘‘which he wore proudly on all state occasions.’’ The 1960’s site record for CA–SBR– 179 states that ‘‘[a]ll the dead of Juan Antonio’s band’’ where found in burial contexts. The archeological field notes describe seven burials, and note that many others were heavily destroyed by tractor activity. (The location of the remains from those burials is unknown.)

did not participate. 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

    On October 4, 1957, during the course of digging a reservoir, human 
remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed from the 
El Casco Dam Property (SBCM-118; CA-SBR-179) in San Bernardino County, 
CA. At some point, the human remains were comingled. One of the 
individuals is a child whose identity is unknown. The other individual, 
an adult, is identified as Juan Antonio Costo by a SBCM label reading 
``Remains of Juan Antonio.'' (When collected, the child's bones might 
have been assumed to be those of Juan Antonio Costo.) The 32 associated 
funerary objects are one epaulette, two lots of fabric fragments, one 
lot of beads, one bell, two rings, four coins, four buttons, three lots 
of varied ceramic, one lot of micro beads, one lot of mixed beads, five 
nails, three lots of fragmented metal, one lot of buttons, one spoon, 
one metal cup fragment, and one military belt buckle and hardware. The 
remains of the adult identified as Juan Antonio Costo were found with 
the epaulette in situ.
    Juan Antonio Costo was the last Hereditary Chief of the Cahuilla. 
In 1851, he moved his band to the village of Sahat'pa, in San Timoteo 
Canyon, where the El Casco Dam Property is located. Sahat'pa, a 
historic Cahuilla village and cemetery occupied by Mountain Cahuillas, 
remained under the leadership of Juan Antonio from 1851 until his death 
during the smallpox epidemic of early 1863. A SBCMA publication relates 
that an American General Bean gifted Juan Antonio many presents, 
including an officer's army coat and epaulettes, ``which he wore 
proudly on all state occasions.''
    The 1960's site record for CA-SBR-179 states that ``[a]ll the dead 
of Juan Antonio's band'' where found in burial contexts. The 
archeological field notes describe seven burials, and note that many 
others were heavily destroyed by tractor activity. (The location of the 
remains from those burials is unknown.) Subsequently, the site became 
registered California State Historic Site, No. 749.
    Today, the Cahuilla are represented by the Agua Caliente Band of 
Cahuilla Indians of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, California; 
Augustine Band of Cahuilla Indians, California [previously listed as 
Augustine Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Augustine 
Reservation]; Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, California; Cahuilla 
Band of Indians [previously listed as Cahuilla Band of Mission Indians 
of the Cahuilla Reservation, California]; Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla 
and Cupeno Indians, California [previously listed as Los Coyotes Band 
of Cahuilla & Cupeno Indians of the Los Coyotes Reservation]; Morongo 
Band of Mission Indians, California [previously listed as Morongo Band 
of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Morongo Reservation]; Ramona Band of 
Cahuilla, California [previously listed as Ramona Band or Village of 
Cahuilla Mission Indians of California]; Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla 
Indians, California [previously listed as Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla 
Mission Indians of the Santa Rosa Reservation]; and the Torres Martinez 
Desert Cahuilla Indians, California [previously listed as Torres-
Martinez Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of California]. Through 
consultation with representatives of the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla 
Indians, SBCM has identified Orlando Anthony Largo, Lorraine Lobbins, 
Leon Scribner, Lois Scribner Odom, and Vivian Hamilton as the lineal 
descendants of Juan Antonio Costo, and through consultation with 
representatives of the Cahuilla Band of Indians, SBCM has also 
identified a sixth lineal descendant of Juan Antonio Costo, Mara Costo.

Determinations Made by the San Bernardino County Museum

    Personnel of the San Bernardino County Museum have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of two individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 32 objects described 
in this notice 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.
     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 objects and the Agua 
Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians of the Agua Caliente Indian 
Reservation, California; Augustine Band of Cahuilla Indians, California 
[previously listed as Augustine Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the 
Augustine Reservation]; Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, California; 
Cahuilla Band of Indians [previously listed as Cahuilla Band of Mission 
Indians of the Cahuilla Reservation, California]; Los Coyotes Band of 
Cahuilla and Cupeno Indians, California [previously listed as Los 
Coyotes Band of Cahuilla & Cupeno Indians of the Los Coyotes 
Reservation]; Morongo Band of Mission Indians, California [previously 
listed as Morongo Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Morongo 
Reservation]; Ramona Band of Cahuilla, California [previously listed as 
Ramona Band or Village of Cahuilla Mission Indians of California]; 
Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians, California [previously listed as 
Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Santa Rosa 
Reservation]; and the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indians, 
California [previously listed as Torres-Martinez Band of Cahuilla 
Mission Indians of California] (hereafter referred to as ``The 
Affiliated Tribes'').
     Pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2(b)(1) and 10.14(b), Orlando 
Anthony Largo, Lorraine Lobbins, Leon Scribner, Lois Scribner Odom, 
Vivian Hamilton, and Mara Costo are the direct lineal descendants of 
Juan Antonio Costo; hereafter, they are referred to as ``The Lineal 
Descendants.''
