Description Between 1966 and 1968, the University of Georgia conducted excavations at the Burnt Village Site (9TP9), in Troup County, GA, in advance of the construction and subsequent inundation of the West Point Lake reservoir. Human remains were identified in a minimum of 20 individual grave locations, but due to preservation issues, an unknown number of individuals were uncovered but not exhumed. Feature 153 was documented as a burial location. The collection from the Burnt Village site, which has been housed at the University of Georgia since the excavation, contains objects from Feature 153, but no human remains. Based on this circumstantial evidence, the human remains associated with these objects were never removed from the Burnt Village Site. The 95 objects under the control of Mobile District known to originate from Feature 153 include nine glass fragments, two lots of beads, nine individual beads (tube and seed), two lots of wood/charcoal, five charred pieces of wood, one lot of charred seeds, three brass fragments, one iron fragment, one lead fragment, one unidentified metal fragment, 45 ceramic sherds, one lot of daub, six individual pieces of daub, two pieces of quartz, one lot of faunal remains, three individual faunal skeletal elements, and three unmodified rocks. PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53487 Cultural Affiliation The cultural items in this notice are connected to one or more identifiable earlier groups, tribes, peoples, or cultures. There is a relationship of shared group identity between the identifiable earlier groups, tribes, peoples, or cultures and one or more Indian Tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations. The following types of information were used to reasonably trace this relationship: geographical, archeological, linguistic, folkloric, oral traditional, historical, and expert opinion. Geographically, the Burnt Village site is the location of the historically known Creek Town of Okfuskeneena. The site is located within established Creek Indian territory on the western bank of the central Chattahoochee River in Troup County, GA. This area is both within treaty-designated Creek lands, and land known through historic and ethnographic accounts as being home to the Creek Indians. Archeological investigations of the site confirmed historical accounts of the village location, which was recorded as being attacked on September 27, 1793, by white settlers. Evidence includes diagnostic artifacts that correspond to those expected and described in historical accounts. Linguistic and folkloric evidence for settlements in the area reflect a Creek occupation of the central Chattahoochee River Valley, including the area of the Burnt Village site. Historic accounts indicate that the survivors of Creek Town of Okfuskeneena fled and were welcomed into neighboring Creek polities, which eventually became part of the Creek Confederations. Oral traditional information provided by tribal members further demonstrates that the descendants of the Town of Okfuskeneena currently reside within, and are part of, The Muscogee (Creek) Nation. Determinations Pursuant to NAGPRA and its implementing regulations, and after consultation with the appropriate Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, has determined that: • The 95 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 E:\FR\FM\31AUN1.SGM 31AUN1 53488 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 168 / Wednesday, August 31, 2022 / Notices been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. • There is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the cultural items and The Muscogee (Creek) Nation. Requests for Repatriation Additional, written requests for repatriation of the cultural items in this notice must be sent to Ms. Alexandria Smith, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, 109 St. Joseph Street, P.O.

Requests for repatriation may be submitted by any lineal descendant, Indian Tribe, or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice who shows, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the requestor is a lineal descendant or a culturally affiliated Indian Tribe or Native Hawaiian organization. Repatriation of the cultural items in this notice to a requestor may occur on or after September 30, 2022. If competing requests for repatriation are received, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, must determine the most appropriate requestor prior to repatriation. Requests for joint repatriation of the cultural items are considered a single request and not competing requests. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, is responsible for sending a copy of this notice to the Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations identified in this notice.

The public record for this review may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—On May 9, 2022, the Commission determined that the domestic interested party group response to its notice of institution (87 FR 5511, February 1, 2022) of the subject five-year reviews was adequate and that the respondent interested party group response was inadequate. The Commission did not find any other circumstances that would warrant conducting full reviews.1 Accordingly, the Commission determined that it would conduct expedited reviews pursuant to section 751(c)(3) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)(3)). For further information concerning the conduct of these reviews and rules of general application, consult the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, subparts A and B (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A, D, E, and F (19 CFR part 207). Please note the Secretary’s Office will accept only electronic filings at this time. Filings must be made through the Commission’s Electronic Document Information System (EDIS, https:// edis.usitc.gov). No in-person paperbased filings or paper copies of any electronic filings will be accepted until further notice. Staff report.—A staff report containing information concerning the subject matter of the reviews has been 1 A record of the Commissioners’ votes is available from the Office of the Secretary and at the Commission’s website. PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 placed in the nonpublic record, and will be made available to persons on the Administrative Protective Order service list for these reviews on August 19, 2022. A public version will be issued thereafter, pursuant to section 207.62(d)(4) of the Commission’s rules. Written submissions.—As provided in section 207.62(d) of the Commission’s rules, interested parties that are parties to the reviews and that have provided individually adequate responses to the notice of institution,2 and any party other than an interested party to the reviews may file written comments with the Secretary on what determinations the Commission should reach in the reviews. Comments are due on or before August 26, 2022 and may not contain new factual information. Any person that is neither a party to the five-year reviews nor an interested party may submit a brief written statement (which shall not contain any new factual information) pertinent to the reviews by August 26, 2022. However, should the Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) extend the time limit for its completion of the final results of its reviews, the deadline for comments (which may not contain new factual information) on Commerce’s final results is three business days after the issuance of Commerce’s results. If comments contain business proprietary information (BPI), they must conform with the requirements of sections 201.6, 207.3, and 207.7 of the Commission’s rules. The Commission’s Handbook on Filing Procedures, available on the Commission’s website at https:// www.usitc.gov/documents/handbook_ on_filing_procedures.pdf, elaborates upon the Commission’s procedures with respect to filings. In accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the rules, each document filed by a party to the reviews must be served on all other parties to the reviews (as identified by either the public or BPI service list), and a certificate of service must be timely filed. The Secretary will not accept a document for filing without a certificate of service. Determination.—The Commission has determined these reviews are extraordinarily complicated and therefore has determined to exercise its authority to extend the review period by up to 90 days pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1675(c)(5)(B). 2 The Commission has found the responses to its notice of institution filed on behalf of Auburn Manufacturing, Inc. and SGL Composites Inc., domestic producers of amorphous silica fabric, to be individually adequate. Comments from other interested parties will not be accepted (see 19 CFR 207.62(d)(2)). E:\FR\FM\31AUN1.SGM 31AUN1

Description

    Between 1966 and 1968, the University of Georgia conducted 
excavations at the Burnt Village Site (9TP9), in Troup County, GA, in 
advance of the construction and subsequent inundation of the West Point 
Lake reservoir. Human remains were identified in a minimum of 20 
individual grave locations, but due to preservation issues, an unknown 
number of individuals were uncovered but not exhumed.
    Feature 153 was documented as a burial location. The collection 
from the Burnt Village site, which has been housed at the University of 
Georgia since the excavation, contains objects from Feature 153, but no 
human remains. Based on this circumstantial evidence, the human remains 
associated with these objects were never removed from the Burnt Village 
Site.
    The 95 objects under the control of Mobile District known to 
originate from Feature 153 include nine glass fragments, two lots of 
beads, nine individual beads (tube and seed), two lots of wood/
charcoal, five charred pieces of wood, one lot of charred seeds, three 
brass fragments, one iron fragment, one lead fragment, one unidentified 
metal fragment, 45 ceramic sherds, one lot of daub, six individual 
pieces of daub, two pieces of quartz, one lot of faunal remains, three 
individual faunal skeletal elements, and three unmodified rocks.

Cultural Affiliation

    The cultural items in this notice are connected to one or more 
identifiable earlier groups, tribes, peoples, or cultures. There is a 
relationship of shared group identity between the identifiable earlier 
groups, tribes, peoples, or cultures and one or more Indian Tribes or 
Native Hawaiian organizations. The following types of information were 
used to reasonably trace this relationship: geographical, 
archeological, linguistic, folkloric, oral traditional, historical, and 
expert opinion. Geographically, the Burnt Village site is the location 
of the historically known Creek Town of Okfuskeneena. The site is 
located within established Creek Indian territory on the western bank 
of the central Chattahoochee River in Troup County, GA. This area is 
both within treaty-designated Creek lands, and land known through 
historic and ethnographic accounts as being home to the Creek Indians. 
Archeological investigations of the site confirmed historical accounts 
of the village location, which was recorded as being attacked on 
September 27, 1793, by white settlers. Evidence includes diagnostic 
artifacts that correspond to those expected and described in historical 
accounts. Linguistic and folkloric evidence for settlements in the area 
reflect a Creek occupation of the central Chattahoochee River Valley, 
including the area of the Burnt Village site.
    Historic accounts indicate that the survivors of Creek Town of 
Okfuskeneena fled and were welcomed into neighboring Creek polities, 
which eventually became part of the Creek Confederations. Oral 
traditional information provided by tribal members further demonstrates 
that the descendants of the Town of Okfuskeneena currently reside 
within, and are part of, The Muscogee (Creek) Nation.

Determinations

    Pursuant to NAGPRA and its implementing regulations, and after 
consultation with the appropriate Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiian 
organizations, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, has 
determined that:
     The 95 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

[[Page 53488]]

been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American 
individual.
     There is a relationship of shared group identity that can 
be reasonably traced between the cultural items and The Muscogee 
(Creek) Nation.

Requests for Repatriation

    Additional, written requests for repatriation of the cultural items 
in this notice must be sent to Ms. Alexandria Smith, U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers, Mobile District, 109 St. Joseph Street, P.O. Box 2288, 
Mobile, AL 36628-0001, telephone (251) 690-2728, email 
[email protected]. Requests for repatriation may be 
submitted by any lineal descendant, Indian Tribe, or Native Hawaiian 
organization not identified in this notice who shows, by a 
preponderance of the evidence, that the requestor is a lineal 
descendant or a culturally affiliated Indian Tribe or Native Hawaiian 
organization.
    Repatriation of the cultural items in this notice to a requestor 
may occur on or after September 30, 2022. If competing requests for 
repatriation are received, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile 
District, must determine the most appropriate requestor prior to 
repatriation. Requests for joint repatriation of the cultural items are 
considered a single request and not competing requests. The U.S. Army 
Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, is responsible for sending a copy 
of this notice to the Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations 
identified in this notice.
