Hereafter, all the above listed Indian Tribes are referred to as ‘‘The Consulted and Invited Tribes.’’ History and Description of the Remains At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an unknown site most likely located in San Bernardino County, CA. The human remains were acquired by the University of South Florida by way of a donation from the St. Petersburg (Florida) Museum of History, but neither institution has a record of when the human remains were transferred. Records indicate that the human remains were donated to the St. Petersburg Museum of History by Cyrus Belden on January 15, 1966. The human remains are accompanied by a label reading ‘‘Skull of Cahuilla Tribe IndianMorongo Valley California-Tribe now in Palm Canyon, California, G-Cyrus Belden, 1966.’’ A second label reads ‘‘Indian skull from Cahuilla Tribe Morongo Valley and Calif. Now in Palm Canyon Donated by Cyrus Belden St. Petersburg, Fla., and Morongo Valley, Calif 193[?]’’. The human remains consist of a single cranium lacking the mandible and teeth in the maxilla. Cranial measurements indicate the individual was male. Comparison of the cranial measurements to modern populations using the FORDISC program returned only a broad affiliation of Native American. Comparison with a standard database of older Native American samples identified as Eskimo, Arikara, Peruvian, and Californian (tied to Native populations of the Channel Islands area), showed that the cranium was most similar to the California group. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. An obituary for ‘‘Cyrus L. (Cy) Belden’’ published in local newspapers in 1974 identifies him as a native of New Jersey and a former resident of St. Petersburg, Florida. Belden was apparently residing in Hudson, New Jersey, in 1942, when he filled out a World War II draft registration card. However, his address on the draft card was marked through, and a handwritten entry updated it to one in Monterey Park, California. Newspaper entries, voter registration records, and city directories place Belden in Long Beach, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Sep 24, 2021 Jkt 253001 California, at various dates between 1944 and 1958. He appears to have moved to Florida by 1965. Belden lived in St. Petersburg, Florida, before moving to Tampa three years before his death. Based on geographical, archeological, oral traditional, and historical lines of evidence, as well as expert opinion, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation, California and the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, California [previously listed as Morongo Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Morongo Reservation] (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Tribes’’) are culturally affiliated with the human remains. Determinations Made by the Department of Anthropology, University of South Florida Officials of the Department of Anthropology, University of South Florida 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(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and The Tribes.

History and Description of the Remains

    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from an unknown site most likely located in San 
Bernardino County, CA. The human remains were acquired by the 
University of South Florida by way of a donation from the St. 
Petersburg (Florida) Museum of History, but neither institution has a 
record of when the human remains were transferred. Records indicate 
that the human remains were donated to the St. Petersburg Museum of 
History by Cyrus Belden on January 15, 1966. The human remains are 
accompanied by a label reading ``Skull of Cahuilla Tribe Indian-Morongo 
Valley California-Tribe now in Palm Canyon, California, G-Cyrus Belden, 
1966.'' A second label reads ``Indian skull from Cahuilla Tribe Morongo 
Valley and Calif. Now in Palm Canyon Donated by Cyrus Belden St. 
Petersburg, Fla., and Morongo Valley, Calif 193[?]''. The human remains 
consist of a single cranium lacking the mandible and teeth in the 
maxilla. Cranial measurements indicate the individual was male. 
Comparison of the cranial measurements to modern populations using the 
FORDISC program returned only a broad affiliation of Native American. 
Comparison with a standard database of older Native American samples 
identified as Eskimo, Arikara, Peruvian, and Californian (tied to 
Native populations of the Channel Islands area), showed that the 
cranium was most similar to the California group. No known individual 
was identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    An obituary for ``Cyrus L. (Cy) Belden'' published in local 
newspapers in 1974 identifies him as a native of New Jersey and a 
former resident of St. Petersburg, Florida. Belden was apparently 
residing in Hudson, New Jersey, in 1942, when he filled out a World War 
II draft registration card. However, his address on the draft card was 
marked through, and a handwritten entry updated it to one in Monterey 
Park, California. Newspaper entries, voter registration records, and 
city directories place Belden in Long Beach, California, at various 
dates between 1944 and 1958. He appears to have moved to Florida by 
1965. Belden lived in St. Petersburg, Florida, before moving to Tampa 
three years before his death.
    Based on geographical, archeological, oral traditional, and 
historical lines of evidence, as well as expert opinion, the Agua 
Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians of the Agua Caliente Indian 
Reservation, California and the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, 
California [previously listed as Morongo Band of Cahuilla Mission 
Indians of the Morongo Reservation] (hereafter referred to as ``The 
Tribes'') are culturally affiliated with the human remains.

Determinations Made by the Department of Anthropology, University of 
South Florida

    Officials of the Department of Anthropology, University of South 
Florida 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(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and 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 should submit a
