SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 under the control of the Arizona Museum of Natural History, Mesa, AZ. The human remains were most likely removed from Maricopa County, AZ. 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. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Arizona Museum of Natural History professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Gila River Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation, Arizona, and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona. History and Description of the Remains In 2021, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unknown location most likely in Maricopa County, AZ. The human remains belong to an individual of undetermined age and sex. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. The human remains were discovered when the box in which they were housed was moved from the Historic Post Office. As information on the box references Scottsdale, AZ, the Arizona Museum of Natural History has determined that the human remains most likely were removed from Maricopa County. According to archeological understanding, the region where these human remains were most likely collected was occupied by the Hohokam Material Culture in prehistoric times. As the primary collection of the Arizona Museum of Natural History focuses on Hohokam Material Culture, the Arizona Museum of Natural History has determined that the human remains most likely are Hohokam. According to archeological and ethnographic understandings, the Hohokam Material Culture people were ancestors to the Four Southern Tribes of Arizona (Ak-Chin Indian Community [previously listed as Ak Chin Indian Community of the Maricopa (Ak Chin) Indian Reservation, Arizona]; Gila River E:\FR\FM\08JNN1.SGM 08JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 108 / Tuesday, June 8, 2021 / Notices Indian Community of the Gila River Indian Reservation, Arizona; Salt RiverPima Maricopa Indian Community of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona; and Tohono O’odham Nation of Arizona) and the Hopi Tribe of Arizona.

History and Description of the Cultural Items In 1940 or 1941, one lot of beans was removed from Santa Clara Pueblo in Rio Arriba County, NM. At that time, George F. Carter collected the beans from representatives of the ‘‘East Delaware Indians of Okla.’’, a term used for the modern Delaware Tribe of Indians. The exact breed of bean is unknown. The one object of cultural patrimony is one vial of beans. In c. 1900, one hank of wampum was removed from an unknown location in Nebraska. It was collected by Frank B. Hutchens ‘‘from Indians who were being relocated by the government.’’ The items were made of shell, and the place of manufacture was recorded as New Jersey. The one object of cultural patrimony is a hank of wampum consisting of 27 strands of cylindrical shell beads. In 1904, 1,895 funerary objects were removed from the vicinity of Abbott Farm in Mercer County, NJ. These items were collected by Ernest Volk as part of his annual excavations in the area and sent to the University of California. The items collected were from funerary sites south of Trenton that stretch along Crosswicks Creek, from the Delaware River to Yardville, NJ. The 1,895 unassociated funerary objects are: 842 items described as ‘‘lithics and pottery’’; three sets of faunal remains; 62 items described as ‘‘hammerstones and flakes’’; 511 lithics; 21 items described as ‘‘lithics and mica’’; 27 items described as ‘‘lithics, pottery, and bone’’; 115 items described as ‘‘lithics, pottery, and charcoal’’; 93 items described as ‘‘lithics, pottery, antler, and pipe’’; 220 items described as ‘‘lithics, pottery, bone, charcoal and botanical remains’’; and one piece of pottery. Determinations Made by the University of California, Berkeley Officials of the University of California, Berkeley have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 1,895 cultural items collected from New Jersey and 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(3)(D), the two cultural items collected from E:\FR\FM\08JNN1.SGM 08JNN1

Community of the Salt River Reservation, Arizona.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 2021, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
were removed from an unknown location most likely in Maricopa County, 
AZ. The human remains belong to an individual of undetermined age and

in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of

Reservation, Arizona]; Gila River Indian Community of the Gila River 
Indian Reservation, Arizona; Hopi Tribe of Arizona; Salt River-Pima
