Determinations (as Amended)

    Pursuant to NAGPRA and its implementing regulations, and after

later as part of the death rite or ceremony.
     No relationship of shared group identity can be reasonably 
traced between the human remains and associated funerary objects and 
any Indian Tribe.
     The human remains and associated funerary objects were 
removed from the aboriginal land of the Cherokee Nation; Eastern Band 
of Cherokee Indians; and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians 
in Oklahoma.
