The information is used to evaluate requests and determine the suitability of the applicants to safely and effectively provide an appropriate service to the visiting public.

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 under the control of the Kodiak Historical Society, Kodiak, AK. The human remains were removed from Kizhuyak in Kodiak Island, AK. 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 that has control of the Native American human remains. 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 Kodiak Historical Society professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Native Village of Afognak; Native Village of Ouzinkie; Native Village of Port Lions; and the Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak (previously listed as Shoonaq’ Tribe of Kodiak) (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Consulted Villages’’). History and Description of the Remains In 1959, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed from the Kizhuyak site in Kodiak Island, AK, by archeologist Donald Clark during an archeological excavation funded by the Kodiak Historical Society. The fragmentary and incomplete skeletal remains are from a prehistoric archeological context and were found with artifacts that represent late prehistoric Alutiiq culture, ca. 2000–400 years BP. As such, these are almost certainly the human remains of Alutiiq ancestors from the period before the Russian arrival. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Determinations Made by the Kodiak Historical Society Professional staff of the Kodiak Historical Society have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of two individuals 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 Native Village of Afognak; Native Village of Ouzinkie; and the Native Village of Port Lions (hereafter referred to as ‘‘The Villages’’).

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 that are, variously, under the control of the University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Sacramento, 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 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 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 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. 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 Ada´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 E:\FR\FM\12SEN1.SGM 12SEN1
