    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 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 and number 
of tribes that were determined to be culturally affiliated in a Notice 
of Inventory Completion previously published in the Federal Register of 
February 1, 2006 (FR Doc E6-1273, pages 5369-5373). The minimum number 
of individuals is raised from 47 to 48. The Apache Tribe of Oklahoma 
and Mescalero Apache Tribe of the Mescalero Reservation, New Mexico 
have been added to the list of culturally affiliated Indian Tribes.
    In the Federal Register of February 1, 2006, paragraph number 31 is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    In 1951, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals 
were removed from an unknown area near the old toll station in Boulder 
Canyon, Boulder County, CO. The human remains were either transferred 
to the University of Colorado Museum by another University of Colorado 
department or anonymously donated prior to 1993. No known individuals 
were identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    In the Federal Register of February 1, 2006, paragraph numbers 56 
to 58 are corrected by substituting the following paragraphs:
    Officials of the University of Colorado Museum have determined 
that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains described 
above represent the physical remains of a minimum of 48 individuals of 
Native American ancestry. Officials of the University of Colorado 
Museum also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the 
79 objects described above are reasonably believed to have been placed 
with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as 
part of the death rite or ceremony. Lastly, officials of the University 
of Colorado Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), 
there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably 
traced between the Native American human remains and the Apache Tribe 
of Oklahoma; Arapahoe Tribe of the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming; 
Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma; Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of the 
Cheyenne River Reservation, South Dakota; Comanche Nation, Oklahoma;

    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains and associated funerary 
objects should contact Steve Lekson, Curator of Anthropology, 
University of Colorado Museum, Henderson Building, Campus Box 218, 
Boulder, CO 80309-0218, telephone (303) 492-6671, before August 1,
