History and Description of the Remains

    In 1959, Francis and Mary Crane purchased human remains 
representing a minimum of one individual from Kohlberg's Antiques and 
Indian Arts, in Denver, CO. In 1972, the human remains were donated by 
Mr. and Mrs. Crane and accessioned into the collections (AC.4224 (CUI 
21)). The

[[Page 9601]]

remains include a scalp lock with black hair, approximately 16 inches 
long, and one quarter of an inch wide. The upper end of the scalp lock 
is covered with sinew, yellow dyed deerskin, and tufts of red feather. 
No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are 
present.
    In 1956, Francis and Mary Crane purchased human remains 
representing a minimum of one individual from Kohlberg's Antiques and 
Indian Arts. The remains were reportedly a part of the George A. Cuneo 
Collection of Southwestern and Plains Indian objects collected in the 
late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1983, the human remains were 
donated by Mr. and Mrs. Crane and accessioned into the collections 
(AC.35D (CUI 23)). The remains include seven inches of black and grey 
hair and scalp with traces of red pigment and a row of perforations 
along one edge of it. No known individual was identified. No associated 
funerary objects are present.

Determinations Made by the Denver Museum

    Officials of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science have determined 
that:
     Based on non-destructive physical analysis and catalogue 
records, the human remains are Native American.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American 
human remains and any present-day Indian Tribe.
     According to final judgments of the Indian Claims 
Commission, the land from which the Native American human remains were 
removed is the aboriginal land of the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma;
