Notice of Intent to Repatriate a Cultural Item: Field Museum of 
Natural History, Chicago, IL; Correction

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Field Museum of Natural History has corrected a Notice of 
Intent to Repatriate published in the Federal Register on March 7, 
2003. This notice removes the language surrounding right of possession 
and compromise of claim provisions that the Museum previously asserted 
were necessary for this repatriation to occur. Lineal descendants or 
representatives of any Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not 
identified in this notice that wish to claim these cultural items 
should submit a written request to the Field Museum of Natural History. 
If no additional claimants come forward, transfer of control of the 
cultural items to the lineal descendants, Indian tribes, or Native 
Hawaiian organizations stated in this notice may proceed.

DATES: Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or 
Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to 
claim these cultural items should submit a written request with 
information in support of the claim to the Field Museum of Natural 
History at the address in this notice by September 16, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Helen Robbins, Repatriation Director, Field Museum of 
Natural History, 1400 S Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605, telephone 
(312) 665-7317, email hrobbins@fieldmuseum.org.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3005, of the intent to repatriate a cultural item under the 
control of the Field Museum of Natural History that meets the 
definition of sacred object under 25 U.S.C. 3001.
    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 cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.
    This notice removes the language surrounding right of possession 
and compromise of claim provisions published in a Notice of Intent to 
Repatriate in the Federal Register (68 FR 11136, March 7, 2003). The 
Museum no longer asserts that these provisions are necessary for the 
repatriation to occur and is removing them from the notice. Transfer of 
control of the items in this correction notice has not occurred.

Correction

    In the Federal Register (68 FR 11136, March 7, 2003), paragraph 
eight is corrected by removing the entire paragraph from the notice.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim 
these cultural items should submit a written request with information 
in support of the claim to Helen Robbins, Repatriation Director, Field 
Museum of Natural History, 1400 S Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605, 
telephone (312) 665-7317, email hrobbins@fieldmuseum.org, by September 
16, 2013. After that date, if no additional claimants have come 
forward, transfer of control of the sacred object to the Ho-Chunk 
Nation of Wisconsin may proceed.
    The Field Museum of Natural History is responsible for notifying 
the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin and the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska 
that this notice has been published.

    Dated: July 25, 2013.
David Tarler,
Acting Manager, National NAGPRA Program.
