AGENCY: National Park Service.

ACTION: Notice.

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

    Notice is hereby given in accordance with provisions of the Native
American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 43 CFR 10.9,
of the revision of an inventory of human remains in the possession of
University of Nebraska State Museum, University of Nebraska-Lincoln,
Lincoln, NE.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by University
of Nebraska-Lincoln professional staff in consultation with
representatives of North Slope Borough as the authorized representative
of the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Traditional Government, and
Mrs. C. Boellstorff.
    In 1931, human remains representing one individual were donated to
the University of Nebraska State Museum by Mrs. Charles Fritch. No
known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are
present.
    These human remains were erroneously identified in the Notice of
Inventory Completion, published April 6, 1999, as having been collected

Barrow, AK by T.L. Richardson and donated to the Museum by Mrs. C.
Boellstorff. In fact, these human remains were donated by Mrs. Fritch
who lived in Pawnee County, NE. These human remains come from an
unknown location and were collected under unknown circumstances and are
now re-classified as culturally unidentifiable.
    Based on the above-mentioned information, officials of the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln have determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR
10.2 (d)(1), the human remains listed above represent the physical
remains of one individual of Native American ancestry. Officials of the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln also have determined that, pursuant to
43 CFR 10.2 (e), there is no relationship of shared group identity that
can be reasonably traced between these Native American human remains
and any present-day Indian tribe.
    This notice has been sent to officials of the North Slope Borough,
the Native Village of Barrow Inupiat Traditional Government.
Representatives of any other Indian tribe that wish consultation
regarding these human remains should contact Dr. Priscilla Grew, NAGPRA
Coordinator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 301 Bessey Hall, Lincoln,
NE 68588-0381, telephone (402) 472-7854.
