DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

National Park Service
 
Notice of Inventory Completion: Bishop Museum, Honolulu, HI; 
Correction

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice; correction.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    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 in the possession and 
control of the Bishop Museum, Honolulu, HI. The

human remains were removed from the Island of Kauai, HI.
    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. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.
    This notice corrects a Notice of Inventory Completion published in 
the Federal Register on August 13, 2007, (FR Doc E7-15822, Page 45269), 
by amending the list of Native Hawaiian Organizations determined to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains removed from sites on the 
Island of Kauai.
    In the Federal Register of August 13, 2007, the notice is corrected 
by substituting the following for paragraphs 10 and 11:
    Officials of the Bishop Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 
U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains described above represent the 
physical remains of a minimum of six individuals of Native Hawaiian 
ancestry. Officials of the Bishop Museum also have determined that, 
pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (2), there is a relationship of shared group 
identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native Hawaiian 
human remains and Hui Malama I Na Kupuna O Hawaii Nei and Kauai/Niihau 
Island Burial Council. Based upon information provided regarding 
geographical relationship and kinship traditions, Bishop Museum has 
determined the Kauai/Niihau Island Burial Council to be the most 
appropriate claimant.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian 
organization that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the 
human remains should contact Betty Lou Kam, Vice President, Cultural 
Resources, Bishop Museum, 1525 Bernice Street, Honolulu, HI 96817, 
telephone (808) 808-4144, before February 2, 2009. Repatriation of the 
human remains to the Kauai/Niihau Island Burial Council may proceed 
after that date if no additional claimants come forward.
    The Bishop Museum is responsible for notifying Hui Malama I Na 
Kupuna O Hawaii Nei and Kauai/Niihau Island Burial Council that this 
notice has been published.
