    This notice corrects the number of associated funerary objects

    In the Federal Register of July 18, 2008 (FR Doc E8-16482, page 
41379 - 41380), paragraph numbers 7-8 are corrected by substituting the 
following paragraphs:
    In 1950, human remains representing a minimum of seven individuals 
were removed from the English Camp Site (45-SJ-24) in San Juan County, 
WA, during a University of Washington summer field school directed by 
Professor Adan Treganza of San Francisco State University. The human 
remains and associated funerary objects were transferred to the Burke 
Museum and accessioned by the National Park Service. No known 
individuals were identified. The 23 associated funerary objects are 1 
broken chipped stone projectile point and 22 non-human bone fragments.
    In 1970, 1971, and 1972, human remains representing a minimum of 
eight individuals were removed from the English Camp Site in San Juan 
County, WA, during University of Idaho field schools directed by Dr. 
Roderick Sprague. The human remains and associated funerary objects 
were transferred to the Burke Museum and accessioned by the National 
Park Service. No known individuals were identified. The 58 associated 
funerary objects are 1 splinter awl made from deer bone, 1 tip of an 
antler tine, 1 square nail fragment, 1 wood fragment, 1 Horse Clam 
shell fragment, 6 basalt flakes, and 47 non-human skeletal fragments 
and non-human teeth.
    Paragraph number 10 is corrected by substituting the following 
paragraph:
    In 1951, human remains representing a minimum of seven individuals 
were removed from the North Garrison Bay Site (45-SJ-25) in San Juan 
County, WA, during a summer field school in archeology under the 
direction of Professor Carroll Burroughs of the University of 
Washington. The North Garrison Bay Site is a prehistoric village site 
north of both the Guss Island Site and English Camp Site referred to

National Park Service. No known individuals were identified. The 11 
associated funerary objects are 1 shell fragment, 1 fused non-human 
radius and ulna, 1 deer ulna, 1 carnivore mandible fragment, 1 non-
human rib fragment, 2 non-human bone fragments, and 4 lots of organic 
matter.
    Paragraph number 13 is corrected by substituting the following 
paragraph:
    Officials of San Juan Island National Historical Park have 
determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains 
described above represent the physical remains of 34 individuals of 
Native American ancestry. Officials of San Juan Island National 
Historical Park also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 
(3)(A), the 130 associated funerary objects are reasonably believed to 
have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of 
death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony. Lastly, officials 
of San Juan Island National Historical Park 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 associated funerary objects and the Lummi Tribe of 
the Lummi Reservation, Washington.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary 
objects should contact Peter Dederich, superintendent, San Juan Island 
National Historical Park, P.O. Box 429, Friday Harbor, WA 98250-04289, 
telephone (360) 378-2240, before October 3, 2008. Repatriation of the 
human remains and associated funerary objects to the Lummi Tribe of the 
Lummi Reservation, Washington may proceed after that date if no 
additional claimants come forward.
    San Juan Island National Historical Park is responsible for 
notifying the Lummi Tribe of the Lummi Reservation, Washington; Samish 
Indian Tribe, Washington; and Swinomish Indians of the Swinomish 
Reservation, Washington that this notice has been published.
