WA. The human remains were removed from an unknown area of Western
Oregon.
    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 increases the minimum number of individuals from one to
two in a Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal
Register of January 15, 2008 (FR Doc E8-563, Pages 2525-2526).
    The Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register of
January 15, 2008, paragraph number 4 is corrected by substituting the
following paragraph:
    In the 1930s, human remains representing a minimum of two
individuals were removed from an unknown area in Western Oregon. The
human remains were donated to the museum by Dr. Warner M. Karshner in
the 1930s. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary
objects are present.
    Paragraph number 7 is corrected by substituting the following
paragraph:
    Officials of the Paul H. Karshner Memorial Museum have determined
that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains described
above represent the physical remains of two individuals of Native
American ancestry. Officials of the Paul H. Karshner Memorial 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 American human remains and the Confederated Tribes
of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Dr. Jay
Reifel, Assistant Superintendent, telephone (253) 840-8971 or Ms. Beth
Bestrom, Museum Curator, Paul H. Karsnher Memorial Museum, 309 4th St.
NE, Puyallup, WA 98372, telephone (253) 841-8748, before April 30,
2008. Repatriation of the human remains to the Confederated Tribes of
the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon may proceed after that date if no
additional claimants come forward.
    Paul H. Karshner Memorial Museum is responsible for notifying the
Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians of
Oregon; Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon;
Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Reservation, Oregon; and Coquille
Tribe of Oregon that this notice has been published.

    Dated: February 4, 2008.
