Notice of Inventory Completion: New York University College of 
Dentistry, New York, NY; 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 under the control of the 
New York University College of Dentistry, New York, NY. The human 
remains were removed from Bronx County, NY.
    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 name of a culturally affiliated tribe in a 
Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register (74 FR 
42106-42107, August 20, 2009). The Delaware Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma, 
received Federal recognition on July 28, 2009, after the notice was 
signed by the National NAGPRA Program, but before the notice was 
published.
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42106-42107, August 20, 2009), 
paragraph three is corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by New York 
University College of Dentistry professional staff in consultation with 
representatives of the Delaware Nation of Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of 
Indians, Oklahoma; and Stockbridge Munsee Community, Wisconsin.
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42106-42107, August 20, 2009), 
paragraph five, sentences 10-11 are corrected by substituting the 
following sentences:
    Today, these groups are known as the Delaware Nation of Oklahoma 
and the Delaware Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma. Consultation evidence 
supports the identification of remains from the Broadway and Isham 
Streets site as Munsee and the cultural affiliation of the remains as 
the Delaware Nation of Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma; 
and Stockbridge Munsee Community, Wisconsin.
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42106-42107, August 20, 2009), 
paragraph six, sentence two, is corrected by substituting the following 
sentence:
    Officials of New York University College of Dentistry have also 
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 American human remains and the Delaware Nation of Oklahoma; 
Delaware Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma; and Stockbridge Munsee Community, 
Wisconsin.
    In the Federal Register (74 FR 42106-42107, August 20, 2009), 
paragraph seven, sentence two, is corrected by substituting the 
following paragraph:
    Repatriation of the human remains to the Delaware Nation of 
Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of the Indians, Oklahoma; and Stockbridge 
Munsee Community, Wisconsin, may proceed after that date if no 
additional claimants come forward.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. 
Louis Terracio, New York University College of Dentistry, 345 East 24th 
St, New York, New York, 10010, telephone 212-998-9917, before August 
20, 2012 Repatriation of the human remains to the Delaware Nation of 
Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of the Indians, Oklahoma; and Stockbridge 
Munsee Community, Wisconsin, may proceed after that date if no 
additional claimants come forward.
    The New York University College of Dentistry is responsible for 
notifying the Delaware Nation of Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of Indians, 
Oklahoma; and Stockbridge Munsee Community, Wisconsin, that this notice 
has been published.

    Dated: June 28, 2012.

Manager, National NAGPRA Program.
