    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 
American Museum of Natural History, New York, NY. The human remains

    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

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 published in 
a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register (69 FR 42771-

discovered post-cranial elements of another individual from the site in

the site is increasing from 238 to 239.
    In the Federal Register (69 FR 42771-42772, July 16, 2004),

sentence:

    In 1899, human remains representing a minimum of 239 individuals 
were removed from the surface of a sand spit in Port Williams, 
Clallam County, WA, by Harlan I. Smith during the Jesup North 
Pacific Expedition.

    In the Federal Register (69 FR 42771-42772, July 16, 2004), 
paragraph twelve, sentence one is corrected by substituting the 
following sentence:

    Officials of the American Museum of Natural History have
