CORRECTION--Notice of Intent To Repatriate Cultural Items from
Kawaihae, Kohala, Island of Hawaii, HI, in the Possession of the
Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, Honolulu, HI

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

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

    Notice is hereby given under the Native American Graves Protection
and Repatriation Act, 43 CFR 10.10 (a)(3), of the intent to repatriate
cultural items in the possession of the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum,
Honolulu, HI, that meet the definition of ``unassociated funerary
objects'' under Section 2 of the Act.
    This notice corrects a typographic error in paragraph 15 of the
notice of Intent to Repatriate published April 5, 2000. Paragraph 15 of
the April 5, 2000, notice is corrected by substituting the following
paragraph:
    The 20 cultural items include samples of cordage, mat, and bark
cloth. In 1985, these cultural items from a lava tube complex in
Kawaihae, Kohala, HI were donated to the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum
by Catherine Summers, who compiled these samples from museum
collections.
    This notice also corrects the list of culturally affiliated groups
cited in the Notice of Intent to Repatriate published April 5, 2000.
The list of culturally affiliated groups is corrected by adding the
following groups: the Kekumano `Ohana, the Keohokalole `Ohana, the
Hawaiian Genealogy Society, Na Papa Kanaka O Pu`ukohola Heiau, the
Native Hawaiian Advisory Council, the Pu`uhonua O Waimanalo, the Royal
Hawaiian Academy of Traditional Arts, the Nation of Hawai`i, and the
Van Horn Diamond `Ohana. Paragraph 17 of the April 5, 2000, notice is
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    Based on the above mentioned information, officials of the Bernice
Pauahi Bishop Museum have determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR
10.2(d)(2)(ii), these 168 cultural items 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 and are believed,
by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a
specific burial site of an Native American individual. Officials of the
museum also have determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2 (e), there is
a relationship of shared group identity which can be reasonably traced
between these items and the Hawai`i Island Burial Council, Hui Malama I
Na Kupuna O Hawai`i Nei, the Department of Hawaiian Homelands, and the
Office of Hawaiian Affairs, the Kekumano `Ohana, the Keohokalole Ohana,
the Hawaiian Genealogy Society, Na Papa Kanaka O Pu`ukohola Heiau, the
Native Hawaiian Advisory Council, the Pu`uhonua O Waimanalo, the Royal
Hawaiian Academy of Traditional Arts, the Nation of Hawai`i, and the
Van Horn Diamond `Ohana.
    Finally, this notice corrects the list of organizations to which
this notice is sent by deleting Henry A. Auwae and Melvin Kalahiki,
Jr., adding the groups listed above, providing new contact information,
and providing a new response date. The last paragraph of the April 5,
2000, notice is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: This
notice has been sent to officials of the Hawai`i Island Burial Council,
Hui Malama I Na Kupuna O Hawai`i Nei, the Department of Hawaiian
Homelands, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, the Kekumano `Ohana, the
Keohokalole `Ohana, the Hawaiian Genealogy Society, Na Papa Kanaka O
Pu`ukohola Heiau, the Native Hawaiian Advisory Council, the Pu`uhonua O
Waimanalo, the Royal Hawaiian Academy of Traditional Arts, the Nation
of Hawai`i, and the Van Horn Diamond `Ohana. Representatives of any
other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated
with these human remains and objects should contact Guy Kaulukukui,
Assistant NAGPRA Program Manager, Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, 1525
Bernice Street, Honolulu, HI 96817, telephone (808) 847-8274, before
April 9, 2001. Repatriation of these objects to the Hawai`i Island
Burial Council, Hui Malama I Na Kupuna O Hawai`i Nei, the Department of
Hawaiian Homelands, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, the Kekumano
`Ohana, the Keohokalole `Ohana, the Hawaiian Genealogy Society, Na Papa
Kanaka O Pu`ukohola Heiau, the Native Hawaiian Advisory Council, the
Pu`uhonua O Waimanalo, the Royal Hawaiian Academy of Traditional Arts,
the Nation of Hawai`i, and the Van Horn Diamond `Ohana may begin after
that date if no additional claimants come forward.

    Dated: February 23, 2001.
John Robbins,
Assistant Director, Cultural Resources Stewardship and Partnerships.
