DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

National Park Service
 
Notice of Intent to Repatriate Cultural Items: Horner Collection, 
Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR; Correction

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice; correction.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves 
Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3005, of the intent 
to repatriate cultural items in the possession of the Horner 
Collection, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, that meet the 
definition of "unassociated funerary objects" under 25 U.S.C. 3001.
    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 cultural 
items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the 
determinations in this notice.
    This notice corrects the number of unassociated funerary objects in 
the Notice of Intent to Repatriate Cultural Items published in the 
Federal Register of August 21, 2008 (FR Doc E8-19312, pages 49477-
49479), by the removal of one string of beads.
    The Federal Register notice of August 21, 2008, paragraph 3 is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    The 16 cultural items are 1 club, 1 beaded flask, 9 utility 
baskets, 1 goblet-shaped basket, 1 small bag, 1 projectile point, 1 
porcupine quill headband, and 1 string of beads or sash.
    In the Federal Register of August 21, 2008, paragraph number 11 is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    On June 8, 1973, the C.B Kennedy family and Ruth Kennedy, wife of 
Dr. N.L. Tartar, donated two baskets and a string of beads or sash to 
the Oregon State University Museum. The Horner collection does not have 
a provenience for these items. Tribal representatives of the Redding 
Rancheria, California have identified these items as Pit River in 
cultural affiliation and as items that would typically have been buried 
with the owner. Based on the consultation evidence, officials of the 
Horner Collection, Oregon State University reasonably believe the 
cultural items are unassociated funerary objects.
    In the Federal Register of August 21, 2008, paragraph number 14 is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    Officials of the Horner Collection, Oregon State University have 
determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001 (3(B), the 16 cultural 
items 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 and are believed, by a preponderance of 
the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a 
Native American individual. Officials of Horner Collection, Oregon 
State University also 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 unassociated funerary objects and the Pit 
River Tribe, California and Redding Rancheria, California.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the unassociated funerary objects should 
contact Sabah Randhawa, Executive Vice President and Provost, 
President's Office, Oregon State University, 600 Kerr Administration 
Building, Corvallis, OR 97331, telephone (541) 737-8260, before 
November 10, 2008. Repatriation of the unassociated funerary objects to 
the Redding Rancheria, California may proceed after that date if no 
additional claimants come forward.
