CORRECTION--Notice of Inventory Completion for Native American
Human Remains and Associated Funerary Objects in the Possession of the
U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Effigy Mounds
National Monument, Harpers Ferry, IA

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior

ACTION: Correction

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

    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 U.S. Department of the
Interior, National Park Service, Effigy Mounds National Monument,
Harpers Ferry, IA.
    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
National Park Service unit that has control or possession of these
Native American human remains and associated funerary objects. The
Assistant Director, Cultural Resources Stewardship and Partnerships is
not responsible for the determinations within this notice.
    On March 9, 2001, the National Park Service published a Notice of
Inventory Completion in the Federal Register for 15 Native American
human remains and 3 associated funerary objects in the possession of
Effigy Mounds National Monument. The notice incorrectly listed 12 human
remains and 3 associated funerary objects recovered from Mound #57 as
culturally affiliated with the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska; Iowa
Tribe of Oklahoma; Otoe-Missouria Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma; Ho-Chunk
Nation of Wisconsin; Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska; Upper Sioux Indian
Community of the Upper Sioux Reservation, Minnesota; Shakopee
Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota (Prior Lake); Lower Sioux
Indian Community of Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of the Lower
Sioux Reservation in Minnesota; and Prairie Island Indian Community of
Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of the Prairie Island Reservation,
Minnesota. Based on additional information, the superintendent of
Effigy Mounds National Monument determined that the 12 human remains
and 3 associated funerary objects recovered from Mound #57 are
culturally unidentifiable.
    The Notice of Inventory Completion published by Effigy Mounds
National Monument on March 9, 2001 (Federal Register Document 01-5944,
pages 14201-14203) is corrected as follows:
    The third paragraph is deleted.
    The first sentence of the ninth paragraph is corrected to read:
``Based on the above-mentioned information, the Effigy Mounds National
Monument superintendent has determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2
(d)(1), the human remains listed above represent the physical remains
of three individuals of Native American ancestry.''
    The second sentence of the ninth paragraph is deleted.
    This correction has been sent to officials of the Iowa Tribe of
Kansas and Nebraska; Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma; Otoe-Missouria Tribe of
Indians, Oklahoma; Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin; Sac and Fox Tribe of
the Mississippi in Iowa; Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and
Nebraska; Sac and Fox Nation, Oklahoma; Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska;
Upper Sioux Indian Community of the Upper Sioux Reservation, Minnesota;
Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota; Lower Sioux Indian
Community of Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of the Lower Sioux
Reservation in Minnesota; and Prairie Island Indian Community of
Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of the Prairie Island Reservation,
Minnesota.
    Repatriation of the three other human remains listed in the March
9, 2001, Notice of Inventory Completion is not affected by this
correction.
