Notice of Inventory Completion: Museum of Anthropology, University of 
Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI; 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 of the 
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. The human remains were removed 
from Emmet County, MI.
    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 and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service 
is not responsible for the determinations in this notice.
    This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals in the Notice 
of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register (74 FR 42094-
42095, August 20, 2009).
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42094, August 20, 2009), paragraph 
four is corrected by deleting the following sentences at the top of 
column three:
    The human remains are of an adult and a second, younger adult 
individual. Since that time, based on skeletal and dental morphology, the 
older individual has been identified as being of mixed European and 
Native American ancestry. There is insufficient evidence to positively 
determine the biological affiliation of the younger individual, but they 
may also be of mixed European and Native American ancestry.
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42094, August 20, 2009), paragraph 
four is corrected by inserting the following sentences at the top of 
column three:
    The human remains are of two adults and a third, younger adult 
individual. Since that time, based on skeletal and dental morphology, one 
of the older individuals has been identified as being of mixed European 
and Native American ancestry. There is insufficient evidence to 
positively determine the biological affiliation of the other individuals, 
but they may also be of mixed European and Native American ancestry.
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42094, August 20, 2009), paragraph 
seven is corrected by changing the words ``two individuals'' to ``three 
individuals.''
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42094, August 20, 2009), paragraph 
eight is corrected by changing the words ``two individuals'' to ``three 
individuals.''

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. Ben 
Secunda, NAGPRA Project Manager, University of Michigan, Office of the 
Vice President for Research, 4080 Fleming Building, 503 Thompson St., Ann 
Arbor, MI 48109-1340; telephone (734) 647-9085, before July 12, 2012. 
Repatriation of the human remains to the Little Traverse Bay Bands of 
Odawa Indians may proceed after that date if no additional claimants come 
forward.
    The University of Michigan is responsible for notifying the Little 
Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians that this notice has been published.

    Dated: June 7, 2012.
David Tarler,
Acting Manager, National NAGPRA Program.
