Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 174 / Monday, September 13, 2021 / Notices Indians of Michigan; Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, Michigan and Indiana; and the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation [previously listed as Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation, Kansas] were invited to consult, but they did not participate. Hereafter, the Indian Tribes listed in the section are referred to as ‘‘The Consulted and Invited Tribes.’’ lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 History and Description of the Remains On an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from a burial in Grundy County, IL. The human remains were previously at the Grundy County Historical Society. The Society’s records indicate the human remains may have been donated in the 1920s. In 1998, the human remains were transferred to the Illinois State Museum. The human remains belong to a child 3– 12 years old and of indeterminate sex. No known individual was identified. The four associated funerary objects are three round metal brooches attached to a braid of hair and one lot of fabric. The metal trade artifacts and fabric suggest a Late Historic date (ca. 1760– 1820) for the burial. Based on these artifacts, historical records, and oral traditional information, these human remains are connected to the Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk/Winnebago, and Kickapoo, all of whom were in the Grundy County area during this time. Determinations Made by the Illinois State Museum 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 one individual of Native American ancestry. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the four 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 Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Oklahoma; Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; Hannahville Indian Community, Michigan; HoChunk Nation of Wisconsin; Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas; Kickapoo Tribe of Indians of the Kickapoo Reservation in Kansas; Kickapoo Tribe of Oklahoma; Match-e-be-nash-she-wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians of Michigan; Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi, Michigan [previously VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:39 Sep 10, 2021 Jkt 253001 listed as Huron Potawatomi, Inc.]; Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, Michigan and Indiana; Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation [previously listed as Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation, Kansas]; and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska (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 request transfer of control of these human remains and associated funerary objects should submit a written request with information in support of the request to Dr. Brooke Morgan, Illinois State Museum Research & Collections Center, 1011 East Ash Street, Springfield, IL 62703, telephone (217) 785–8930, email Brooke.Morgan@ illinois.gov, by October 13, 2021.

Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma and The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. History and Description of the Remains In 1941, human remains representing, at minimum, 10 individuals were removed from the Clement 1 site (34Mc8) in McCurtain County, OK. This mound and midden site was excavated in 1941 by the Works Progress Administration, and the excavated E:\FR\FM\13SEN1.SGM 13SEN1 lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 50902 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 174 / Monday, September 13, 2021 / Notices materials were transferred to the Museum the same year. The human remains include one fragmentary skeleton of an adult female, 35–50 years old; one fragmentary skeleton of an adult male, 35–50 years old; one fragmentary skeleton of an adult probable male, 35–50 years old; one fragmentary skeleton of an adult of indeterminate sex, 20–35 years old; two fragmentary skeletons of adults of indeterminate sex, each more than 20 years old; one fragmentary skeleton of an adult of indeterminate sex, 35–50 years old; two fragmentary skeletons of adults greater of indeterminate sex, each more than 50 years old; and one fragmentary set of teeth belonging to an adult of indeterminate sex and age. No known individuals were identified.

While the Clement 1 site (34Mc8) includes both historic and prehistoric components, all the human remains and associated funerary objects listed in this notice belong to the prehistoric component. Based on an analysis of the diagnostic cultural materials from the site (chipped and ground stone, ceramics, bone tools, and ornaments), as well as radiocarbon dates obtained from more recent investigations there, the prehistoric component of the site dates to A.D. 1200–1500. Archeological, oral traditional, and post-contact European historical information reasonably show VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:39 Sep 10, 2021 Jkt 253001 that a cultural affiliation exists between the earlier group connected to the human remains and associated funerary objects at the Clement I site and the present-day Caddo Nation of Oklahoma.
