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 associated funerary objects under the control of the Illinois State Museum, Springfield, IL. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from the Zimmerman archeological site in LaSalle County, IL. 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 associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. History and Description of the Remains In 1970, human remains representing, at minimum, five individuals were removed from the Zimmerman site (11LS13) in LaSalle County, IL, during archeological excavation by Dr. Margaret K. Brown on behalf of the LaSalle County Historical Society, Utica, IL. All five individuals were found in a single burial pit identified as Feature 13. One individual was buried in an extended position and the others were buried in a bundle. The extended burial (Burial 23) was that of an infant. The bundle contained the remains of an adult male 25–35 years old (Burial 24), two infants both around two years of age (Burials 25A and 25B), and the partial skeleton of an adult female (Burial 26). Based on skeletal traits and archeological context, these five individuals have been determined to be Native American. The human remains were housed at the LaSalle County Historical Society following Dr. Brown’s excavations. As early as the 1990s, they were thought to be lost; in 2010, the collection was rediscovered. In 2011, the human remains and associated funerary objects were transferred to the Illinois State Museum. No known individuals were identified. The eight associated funerary objects are seven blue glass beads and one cut deer mandible that were found in association with Burials 25A and/or 25B. The Zimmerman site, also known as the Grand Village of the Kaskaskia and Grand Village of the Illinois State Historic Site, is a multicomponent preand post-contact village site located on the north bank of the Illinois River opposite Starved Rock State Park. French Jesuit missionary Jacques Marquette and explorer Louis Jolliet encountered the Grand Village on their 1673 voyage up the Illinois River and documented it in their journals. The Grand Village of the Kaskaskia served as a large permanent summer residence for the Kaskaskia, Peoria, Cahokia, and other members of the Illinois Confederation during the 17th century. European trade goods indicate the individuals from Feature 13 represent post-contact burials of the Illinois Confederation. The Illinois Confederation’s present-day descendants are members of the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma. Consultation Determinations Made by the Illinois State Museum A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Illinois State Museum professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma. Officials of the Illinois State Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of five VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Jul 02, 2021 Jkt 253001 PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35529 individuals of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the eight 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 Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma.

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 Spurlock Museum, University of Illinois at Urbana-
Champaign, Urbana, IL, that meet the definition of unassociated 
funerary objects under 25 U.S.C. 3001.
    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 cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    On an unknown date, 664 cultural items were removed from the San 
Joaquin Valley in California. On July 17, 1926 they were donated to the 
Museum of Natural History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-
Champaign by Elmer J. Dawson of Lodi, CA. In 1998, they were 
transferred to the World Heritage Museum at the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign, which was renamed the Spurlock Museum in 2000. The 
664 unassociated funerary objects are both cut and natural shell beads 
and pendants. Most of the shell is unidentifiable except for a few 
beads of abalone (family Halioidae) and one marine mussel (family 
Mytilidae). Both shells are consistent with the types found at 
archeological sites near the California shore.
    Museum records clearly indicate that the beads and pendants were 
taken from graves in the San Joaquin Valley. No extant Museum records 
associate the beads and pendants with human remains. The Santa Rosa 
Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California provided the 
museum with maps and written ethnographic, archeological, linguistic, 
and geographical information about the Yokuts and their inter-
relationships with surrounding communities in the territory where the 
unassociated funerary objects were discovered including the Buena Vista 
Rancheria of Me-Wuk Indians of California and the Ione Band of Miwok 
Indians of California.

Determinations Made by the Spurlock Museum, University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign

    Officials of the Spurlock Museum, University of Illinois at Urbana-
Champaign have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 664 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 Buena Vista Rancheria of Me-Wuk 
Indians of California; Ione Band of Miwok Indians of California; and 
the Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California 
(hereafter referred to as ``The Tribes'').

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 Krystiana Krupa, NAGPRA Program Officer, 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 412 Swanlund Administration 
Building, 601 E John Street, MC-304, Champaign, IL 61822, telephone 
(217) 244-2587, email [email protected], by August 5, 2021. After 
that date, if no additional claimants have come forward, transfer of 
control of the unassociated funerary objects to The Tribes may proceed.

responsible for notifying The Tribes that this notice has been 
published.
