History and Description of the Remains In March of 1955, human remains representing, at minimum, 43 individuals were removed from sites CA–MRN–80 and CA–MRN–78 in Marin County, CA, by Adam Treganza. These actions appear to have been undertaken at the behest of Robert Power, a PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55841 restaurateur and collector. Power divided the collection from these sites between California State Parks and the Lowie Museum, now the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology. There is no record of whether the collection was intended to be managed by each recipient separately or by both parties jointly. Additional collections from CA– MRN–80 were made by Fritz A. Riddell on December 29, 1955, and by Albert B. Elsasser in the spring of 1956. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1952 and 1953, human remains representing, at minimum, 12 individuals were removed from site CA– MRN–284, located in Tomales Bay State Park, Marin County, CA, under the auspices of the University of California Archaeological Survey, by Aubrey Neasham and Clement W.

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 Charleston Museum, Charleston, SC. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from ‘‘Mounds near Pioneer’’ in West Carroll Parish, LA. 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. Consultation A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by The Charleston Museum professional staff, Dr. Suzanne Abel of the Charleston County Coroner’s Office, and Dr. Wolf Bueschgen, a PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 forensic dentist, in consultation with representatives of the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma; Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana; Jena Band of Choctaw Indians; Quapaw Nation (previously listed as The Quapaw Tribe of Indians); The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; and The Muscogee (Creek) Nation (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Consulted Tribes’’). History and Description of the Remains In 1925, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from unidentified ‘‘mounds near Pioneer’’ in West Carroll Parish, LA. Subsequently, they were given to the Louisiana State Museum. In 1926, the Louisiana State Museum, under Director Robert Glenk, donated the human remains and associated cultural items to The Charleston Museum, where they have been curated since March of 1926. The human remains, consisting of four skeletal elements, were examined in 2019 by Dr. Suzanne Abel in consultation with The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. Dr. Abel determined that these human remains probably belong to a single individual. No known individual was identified. The 37 associated funerary objects are five clay poverty point objects, 16 pottery fragments, three portions of pottery vessels, six stone tools or projectile points, four stone plummets or gorget fragments, one stone net sinker, and two rubbing stones. Based on consultation with the Office of State Archaeologist for Louisiana, the clay objects and plummets are typical Poverty Point period cultural materials (1700–1300 BC). Seven pottery sherds are likely from a single engraved, shelltempered vessel, probably Plaquemine or Mississippian in age (after A.D. 1000). Eight sherds, Coles Creek Incised or Mazique Incised, are dated A.D. 800– 1200. Three grog-tempered sherds probably date to after A.D. 700. A nearly complete shell tempered vessel, the neck of a water bottle, and a partial hybrid Coles Creek vessel all date to sometime after A.D. 1000. Information on the actual site location and collection history is limited to a single letter to The Charleston Museum from the Louisiana State Museum in 1926. Determination of the cultural affiliation of the human remains and associated funerary objects is based upon geographical, kinship, biological, archeological, linguistic, oral traditional, and historic information. Determinations Made by The Charleston Museum Officials of The Charleston Museum have determined that: E:\FR\FM\12SEN1.SGM 12SEN1

associated funerary objects that are, variously, under the control of 
the University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, and the 
California Department of Parks and Recreation, Sacramento, CA. The

County, CA.
    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

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
University of California, Berkeley and the California Department of 
Parks and Recreation professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, 
California and the Guidiville Rancheria of California.

History and Description of the Remains

    In March of 1955, human remains representing, at minimum, 43 
individuals were removed from sites CA-MRN-80 and CA-MRN-78 in Marin 
County, CA, by Adam Treganza. These actions appear to have been 
undertaken at the behest of Robert Power, a restaurateur and collector. 
Power divided the collection from these sites between California State 
Parks and the Lowie Museum, now the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of 
Anthropology. There is no record of whether the collection was intended 
to be managed by each recipient separately or by both parties jointly. 
Additional collections from CA-MRN-80 were made by Fritz A. Riddell on 
December 29, 1955, and by Albert B. Elsasser in the spring of 1956. No 
known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    In 1952 and 1953, human remains representing, at minimum, 12 
individuals were removed from site CA-MRN-284, located in Tomales Bay 
State Park, Marin County, CA, under the auspices of the University of 
California Archaeological Survey, by Aubrey Neasham and Clement W. 
Meighan. No known individuals were identified. The 21 associated 
funerary objects are one lot of beads, one lot of buttons, one lot of 
cartridge shells, one lot of charmstones and charmstone fragments, one 
lot of crystals, one lot of faunal remains, one lot of figurines and 
figurine fragments, one lot of glass fragments, one lot of metal 
fragments, one lot of mortars and pestles, one lot of nails, one lot of 
pendants, one lot of pestles, one lot of pipe fragments, one lot of 
plant matter, one lot of porcelain fragments, one lot of saws, one lot 
of shells, one lot of sinkers, one lot of stones, and one lot of worked 
stones and stone tools/objects.
    On February 15, 1955, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from an unknown location on Angel Island in 
Marin County, CA, by Ad[aacute]n Eduardo Treganza and Albert B. 
Elsasser. No known individuals were identified. The two associated 
funerary objects are one lot of buttons and one lot of wood fragments.
    Marin County has been the ancestral territory of the Coast Miwok 
since time immemorial. Based on geographical, kinship, archeological, 
linguistic, folkloric, oral traditional, and historical information 
evidence, the present-day Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria are 
culturally affiliated with the Coast Miwok in Marin County.

Determinations Made by the University of California, Berkeley and 
California Department of Parks and Recreation

    Officials of the University of California, Berkeley and California 
Department of Parks and Recreation have determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 56

individuals of Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 23 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 
Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, California.
