DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

National Park Service

Notice of Inventory Completion for Native American Human Remains
and Associated Funerary Objects in the Possession of the Office of the
State Archaeologist, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Notice is hereby given in accordance with provisions of the Native
American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 43 CFR 10.9,
of the completion of an inventory of human remains and associated
funerary objects in the possession of the Office of the State
Archaeologist, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 43 CFR 10.2 (c). The
determinations within this notice are the sole responsibility of the
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of these Native
American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National
Park Service is not responsible for the determinations within this
notice.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Office
of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa, professional staff in
consultation with representatives of the the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and
Nebraska; the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma; the Sac and Fox Tribe of the
Mississippi in Iowa; the Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and
Nebraska; the Sac and Fox Nation of Oklahoma; the Ho-Chunk Nation of
Wisconsin; the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska; the Santee Sioux Tribe of the
Santee Reservation of Nebraska; the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe of
the Lake Traverse Reservation, South Dakota; the Yankton Sioux Tribe of
South Dakota; the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska; the Otoe-Missouria Tribe
of Indians, Oklahoma; the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska; the Ponca Tribe of
Indians of Oklahoma; the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold
Reservation, North Dakota; the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma; the Lower
Sioux Indian Community of Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of the
Lower Sioux; the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe of South Dakota; the
Prairie Band Potawatomi Indians, Kansas; the Citizen Potawatomi Nation,
Oklahoma; and the non-Federally recognized Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota
Community.
    The Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa,
administers the provisions in the Code of Iowa that provide for any
human remains over 150 years old to be reburied in a State cemetery.
The Office of the State Archaeologist, University of Iowa, has in its
possession the human remains of a minimum of 339 Native American
individuals from Iowa whose cultural affiliation is unknown. These
remains are considered ``culturally unidentifiable'' under NAGPRA, 43
CFR 10.10 (g). Federal regulations currently preclude disposition of
culturally unidentifiable human remains absent an overriding legal
requirement or a recommendation from the Secretary of the Interior, 43
CFR 10.9 (e) (6). In October 1997, the Iowa Office of the State
Archaeologist, University of Iowa, and the Office of the State
Archaeologist Indian Advisory Committee, a group composed of
representatives of Native American tribes in and from Iowa, requested
permission to rebury 339 ``unidentified'' human remains in the
possession of the Office of the State Archaeologist, University of
Iowa, in accordance with Iowa law. The request was supported by the
Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma, the Sac
and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska, and the Sac and Fox
Nation of Oklahoma.
    The request was considered by the Native American Graves Protection
and Repatriation Review Committee at its January 1998 meeting. The
review committee recommended that the Office of the State
Archaeologist, University of Iowa, rebury the culturally unidentifiable
human remains in accordance with Iowa law following consultation with
those Federally-recognized tribes and a group seeking Federal
recognition that presently or formerly lived in Iowa. On March 3,

[[Page 81887]]

1999, the Departmental Consulting Archeologist, writing on behalf of
the Secretary of the Interior, concurred with the review committee's
recommendation regarding the disposition of the 339 culturally
unidentifiable human remains according to provisions of the Code of
Iowa 263B. Very limited and fragmentary remains of three individuals
who were originally listed in the Office of the State Archaeologist,
University of Iowa, inventory of human remains and associated funerary
objects could not be determined to be Native American, and they will be
reburied under the provisions of Iowa law.
    Disposition of funerary objects associated with culturally
unidentifiable human remains is neither governed by the Native American
Graves Protection and Repatriation Act nor addressed by Code of Iowa
263B, and no associated funerary objects are included in this notice.
    At an unknown date, human remains representing four individuals
were recovered from an unknown location in Allamakee County, IA, by an
unknown collector. At an unknown date, the human remains were donated

known individual was identified. These remains have been identified as
Native American based on the probable association with an ancient
Native American site and osteological examination. These human remains
cannot be dated or identified with an archeological context, and cannot
be affiliated with any present-day Indian tribe or group.
    In 1908, human remains representing eight individuals were
recovered from 13BN29, Boone County, IA, during excavations conducted

transferred to the Office of the State Archaeologist. In 1987,
additional human remains from the 1908 excavation were transferred to
the Office of the State Archaeologist from the Boone, IA, city library.
