AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

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 completion of an inventory of human remains and associated
funerary objects in the possession of the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of
Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley, CA.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 43 CFR 10.2 (c). The
determinations within this notice are the sole responsibility of the
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of these Native
American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National
Park Service is not responsible for the determinations within this
notice.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Phoebe A.
Hearst Museum of Anthropology professional staff in consultation with
representatives of Barona Group of Capitan Grande Band of Mission
Indians of the Barona Reservation, California; Campo Band of Diegueno
Mission Indians of the Campo Indian Reservation, California; Cuyapaipe
Community of Diegueno Mission Indians of the Cuyapaipe Reservation,
California; Inaja Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of the Inaja and
Cosmit Reservation, California; Jamul Indian Village of California; La
Posta Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of the La Posta Indian
Reservation, California; Manzanita Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of
the Manzanita Reservation, California; Mesa Grande Band of Diegueno

Rosa Reservation, California; Torres-Martinez Band of Cahuilla Mission
Indians of California; and Viejas (Baron Long) Group of Capitan Grande
Band of Mission Indians of the Viejas Reservation, California.
    During the 1930s, human remains representing a minimum of one
individual (Cat.no. 12-11219) were recovered from site CA-SDi-NL-2,
Borego Valley, San Diego County, CA, by Happy Sharp. In 1940, Mr. Sharp
donated these human remains to the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of
Anthropology. No known individual was identified. The 73 associated
funerary objects (Cat.no. 1-64357) are pottery sherds and shell
fragments.

    Based on manner of interment and the associated funerary objects,
this individual has been identified as Native American. Based on strong
geographical evidence, linguistic evidence, and manner of interment
(cremation is generally a post-A.D. 1400 practice in this area), the
preponderance of the evidence indicates cultural affiliation between
these human remains and associated funerary objects and the Barona
Group of Capitan Grande Band of Mission Indians of the Barona
Reservation, California; Campo Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of the
Campo Indian Reservation, California; Cuyapaipe Community of Diegueno
Mission Indians of the Cuyapaipe Reservation, California; Inaja Band of
Diegueno Mission Indians of the Inaja and Cosmit Reservation,
California; Jamul Indian Village of California; La Posta Band of
Diegueno Mission Indians of the La Posta Indian Reservation,
California; Manzanita Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of the Manzanita
Reservation, California; Mesa Grande Band of Diegueno Mission Indians
of the Mesa Grande Reservation, California; San Pasqual Band of
Diegueno Mission Indians of California; Santa Ysabel Band of Diegueno
Mission Indians of the Santa Ysabel Reservation, California; Sycuan

Mission Indians of the Pala Reservation, California; Agua Caliente Band
of Cahuilla Indians of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation,
California; Cahuilla Band of Mission Indians of the Cahuilla
Reservation, California; Cabazon Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of
the Cabazon Reservation, California; Los Coyotes Band of the Cahuilla
Mission Indians of the Los Coyotes Reservation, California; Morongo

California; Ramona Band or Village of Cahuilla Mission Indians of
California; Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Santa
Rosa Reservation, California; Torres-Martinez Band of Cahuilla Mission
Indians of California; and Viejas (Baron Long) Group of Capitan Grande
Band of Mission Indians of the Viejas Reservation, California.
    Based on the above-mentioned information, officials of the Phoebe

CFR 10.2 (d)(1), the human remains listed above represent the physical
remains of a minimum of one individual of Native American ancestry.

Museum have determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2 (e), there is a
relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced
