ACTION: Notice.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 
Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, Beloit, WI. The human 
remains were removed from Langlade County, WI.
    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.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Logan 
Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, professional staff in 
consultation with representatives of the Bad River Band of the Lake 
Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, 
Wisconsin; Forest County Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; Ho-Chunk 
Nation of Wisconsin; Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa 
Indians of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa 
Indians of the

Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of 
Wisconsin; Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake 
Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; Sokaogon Chippewa Community, Wisconsin; and Stockbridge 
Munsee Community, Wisconsin.
    In 1968 or earlier, human remains representing a minimum of one 
individual were recovered during installation of a septic tank with a 
backhoe at the Pine Point Resort, Pickerel Lake, Ainsworth, Langlade 
County, WI. The remains were recorded as ``Historic Indian,'' 
suggesting funerary objects may have been present, although none are 
found in the collection. No known individual was identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    The Pine Point site was surveyed and recorded as 47Lg21 (LMA 
21493W), in conjunction with the 1968 Wild Rivers Project Site Survey, 
directed by Dr. Robert J. Salzer, Beloit College Professor of 
Anthropology. The owners of the Pine Point Resort donated the recovered 
remains to the Logan Museum of Anthropology in 1968. The remains are 
Native American based on morphological evidence. Langlade County is 
near historic Ojibwa and Menominee settlements. The Federally-
recognized Menominee Indian tribe is the Menominee Indian Tribe of 
Wisconsin. The Federally-recognized Ojibwa Indian tribes that are 
affiliated with the area are the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior 
Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin; Lac 
Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; 
Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of the Lac du 
Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior 
Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Community, Wisconsin; 
and Sokaogon Chippewa Community, Wisconsin.
    Officials of the Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, have 
determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), that the human remains 
described above represent the physical remains of one individual of 
Native American ancestry. Lastly, officials of the Logan Museum of 
Anthropology, Beloit College, have determined, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 
3001(2), that there is a relationship of shared group identity that can 
be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the 
Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the 
Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin; Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake 
Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake 
Superior Chippewa Indians of the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of 
Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake 
Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Community, 
Wisconsin; and Sokaogon Chippewa Community, Wisconsin.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact William 
Green, Director, Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, Beloit, 
WI 53511, telephone (608) 363-2119, fax (608) 363-7144, before June 13, 
2011. Repatriation of the human remains to the Bad River Band of the 
Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians of the Bad River Reservation, 
Wisconsin; Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians 
of Wisconsin; Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
the Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of 
Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of 
Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Community, Wisconsin; and Sokaogon 
Chippewa Community, Wisconsin, may proceed after that date if no 
additional claimants come forward.
    The Logan Museum of Anthropology, Beloit College, is responsible 
for notifying the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa 
Indians of the Bad River Reservation, Wisconsin; Forest County 
Potawatomi Community, Wisconsin; Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Lac 
Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; 
Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians of the Lac du 
Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin; Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin; 
Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin; Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior 
Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin; 
Sokaogon Chippewa Community, Wisconsin; and Stockbridge Munsee 
Community, Wisconsin, that this notice has been published.
