        Notice of  Inventory Completion for Native  American Human Remains
        in the Possession of the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago,
        IL

        AGENCY:   National Park Service, Interior

        ACTION:   Notice
        __________________________________________________________________

        Notice is hereby given in accordance with provisions of the Native
        American   Graves  Protection  and  Repatriation  Act,  25  U.S.C.
        3003(d),  of completion of the  inventory of human  remains in the
        possession of the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, IL.

        A detailed inventory  and assessment  of these  human remains  has
        been  made by the Field  Museum and representatives  of the Pawnee
        Tribe of Oklahoma.

        The  cranium and mandible of  a single individual  was acquired by
        The   Field   Museum  in   1894   from   Ward's  Natural   Science
        Establishment, Rochester, NY.  Information from Ward's  identifies
        that  remains as a Pawnee  woman killed in  Nebraska in September,
        1875.  There are no associated funerary objects.  Inventory of the
        human remains and review  of the accompanying documentation failed
        to establish the individual's identity.

        Based on  the abovementioned  information, officials of  The Field
        Museum  has determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there
        is a relationship of shared group identity which can be reasonably
        traced  between  these  human  remains  and  the  Pawnee  Tribe of
        Oklahoma.

        This  notice has  been sent  to officials of  the Pawnee  Tribe of
        Oklahoma. Representatives of any other Indian tribe which believes
        itself to be culturally affiliated with these human remains should
        contact  Jonathan  Haas,  MacArthur   Curator  of  North  American
        Anthropology, The Field Museum  of Natural History, Roosevelt Road
        at Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605, telephone: (312) 922-9410,
        extension 641, before March 17, 1995.  Repatriation of these human
        remains  may begin after that date if no additional claimants come
        forward.
