DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

Notice of Inventory Completion for Native American Human Remains 
and Associated Funerary Objects in the Possession of the Phoebe A. 
Hearst Museum of Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley, 
Berkeley, CA

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 Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of 
Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA.
    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.
    An assessment of the human remains, and catalogue records and 
associated documents relevant to the human remains, was made by Phoebe 
A. Hearst Museum professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona.
    At a date prior to 1907, human remains representing at least one 
individual were removed from an unidentified location in ``Hopi 
country,'' according to museum records, by Kate L. Cory. These human 
remains were donated to the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology in 
1907. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary 
objects are present.The cultural affiliation was based on the museum 
records that referenced ``Hopi country.''Based on the above-mentioned 
information, officials of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology 
have determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2 (d)(1), the human remains 
listed above represent the physical remains of at least one individual 
of Native American ancestry. Officials of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum 
of Anthropology also have determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2 (e), 
there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably 
traced between these Native American human remains and the Hopi Tribe 
of Arizona.This notice has been sent to officials of the Hopi Tribe of 
Arizona. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself 
to be culturally affiliated with these human remains should contact C. 
Richard Hitchcock, NAGPRA Coordinator, Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of 
Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley CA 94720, 
telephone (510) 642-6096, before October 15, 2002. Repatriation of the 
human remains to the Hopi Tribe of Arizona may begin after that date if 
no additional claimants come forward.

    Dated: July 22, 2002.

Acting Manager, National NAGPRA Program.
