          Human  Remains  catalogued  as  Hawaiian,  recieved  from
          Charles Derby, 1856, via the Essex Institute, ca 1867, in
          the  Possession  of  the  Peabody &  Essex  Museum  Salem
          Massachusets.

          AGENCY:   National Park Service, Interior.

          ACTION:   Notice.
          _________________________________________________________

          Notice is  hereby given in accordance  with provisions of
          the  Native American  Graves Protection  and Repatriation
          Act,  25  U.S.C.  3003  (d),  of  the  completion of  the
          inventory  of  human  remains  catalogued   as  Hawaiian,
          recieved  from   Charles  Derby,  1856,   via  the  Essex
          Institute, ca 1867.  

          These  remains  are  in  addition  to  that  reported  on
          December 4,  1992, and published in  the Federal Register
          on January 6, 1993, indicating remains  identified during
          inventory  of  the  museum's archaeological  collections.
          The  museum has  continued in  its consultation  with Hui
          Malama  I Na  Kupuna 'O  Hawai'i  Nei, a  Native Hawaiian
          orgnaization recognized in P.L. 101-601.

          Based on  the above  mentioned information, officials  of
          the Peabody  & Essex Museum, have  determined pursuant to
          25 U.S.C.  (2) that  there is  a  relationship of  shared
          group  identity which  can  be reasonably  traced between
          these   remains   and    present-day   Native    Hawaiian
          organizations.

          Representatives of culturally affiliated  Native Hawaiian
          organizations are  advised  that the  human remains  have
          been  transferred, on  loan,  to  representatives of  The
          State   Historic   Preservation   Officer,   Chairperson,
          Department of Lands and Natural Resources who have agreed
          to hold the remains  until an appropriate Native Hawaiian
          organization can be identified and any potential disputes
          settled, after which should a claimant come forward, they
          may be reinterred. This notice has been sent of officials
          of the  Office of  Hawaiian Affairs.   Representatives of
          any  other  Native  Hawaiian organization  that  believes
          itself  to  be  culturally affiliated  with  these  human
          remains should  contact John  R. Grimes, Peabody  & Essex
          Museum, East India Square,  Salem MA, (508) 745-1876, and
          Mr. William W. Paty, State Historic Preservation Officer,

          September 23, 1993.
