(The M suffix was requested by Yulee Lazarus in 1968 to distinguish the large Fort Walton Temple Mound, from the nearby shell middens.) Based on several types of sherds discovered during the excavation by Fairbanks, it was deduced that the site contained occupations from the Fort Walton period through Deptford, SantaRosa, Swift Creek, and Weeden Island phases. The majority of the human remains belong to adult-aged individuals. A single subadult—likely late teens—is also present. No known individuals have been identified. The 33 associated funerary objects include 23 plain, two stamped, and eight incised ceramic sherds. Between 1956 and 1958, human remains representing, at minimum, nine individuals were removed from the Bell Site (8OK19), in Okaloosa County, FL. In 1956, part of this collection was brought to Florida State University after erosion exposure from Hurricane Flossie washed ‘‘thousands of sherds’’ into Choctawhatchee Bay (according to the State of Florida Master Site File). In 1958, this site was excavated by Charles Fairbanks and W.C. Lazarus and was determined to be of Fort Walton, SantaRosa, Swift Creek, and Weeden Island cultural complexes. Two of the individuals are sub-adults, and the other seven are adults; all are of indeterminate sex. No known individuals have been identified. No associated funerary objects present. In 1959, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals were recovered from the Chambless Site (8OK35), in Okaloosa County, FL, and donated to The Florida State University by the property owner. As the recovered materials came from disturbed backfill soil, their context is unknown among the human remains. According to the State of Florida Master Site File, broken vessels recovered by the landowner were retained by W.C. Lazarus for preservation and restoration at the Fort Walton Temple Museum, Destin, FL. Those ceramic vessels are classified as Fort Walton phase. The human remains belong to one male most likely 30–35 years old, one female most likely 30–35 years old, and one individual of unknown age and sex. No known individuals have been identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In the 1960s, human remains representing, at minimum, eight individuals were removed from the Johnson Site (8WL30), in Walton County, FL, by W.C. Lazarus and J.M. Johnson. Most of the materials collected VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Nov 22, 2021 Jkt 256001 were brought to FSU at that time. (A vessel reportedly recovered during the investigation of the site remains in the possession of J.M. Johnson.) Of the eight individuals, one is probably female 35– 50 years old, and at least two are subadults. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Cultural phase determined to be Fort Walton based on a ceramic analysis.

History and Description of the Cultural Items

    Between 1950 and 1980, three cultural items were removed from an 
unidentified region of Northern California. Anthropologist Robert Spier 
collected or bought three basket hats while doing research on the Hupa 
Tribe. The basket hats remained in Spier's personal collection until 
2017, when his widow donated them, along with many other objects, to 
the McClure Archives and University Museum. The three objects of 
cultural patrimony are woven basket hats.
    Based on an analysis by McClure Archive and University Museum 
staff, these baskets hats are related to the Wiyot Tribe, California. 
According to Robert Spier, the hats were collected from Northern 
California, where the traditional Wiyot Tribe lands are located. In 
consultation, a representative for the Wiyot Tribe described the 
traditional and ceremonial importance of basket hats within the Wiyot 
culture.

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the objects
