          _________________________________________________________________

          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 and
          associated  funerary objects  from the  Island of  Kaua i by  the
          Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum Honolulu, HI.

          A  detailed inventory and  assessment of these  human remains and
          associated  funerary objects  has  been made  by Bishop  Museum's

          In 1928, Wendell C. Bennett and Kenneth P. Emory, Anthropologists
          at Bishop Museum, collected two sets of remains from sands dunes,
          L hu e district.  In  October 1928, W. C. Bennett  shipped twelve
          remains, mostly skulls,  from Waimea.   In December 1928,  Bishop
          Museum received four crania from Ke lia,  from W. C. Bennett.  In
          1929, W. C.  Bennett removed  fifteen sets of  remains from  K p 






          Kai, Kaunalewa caves,  and Nu alolo.   The remains from  Nu alolo
          were associated  with 1 bead.   In 1936, the  Museum received one
          set of human  remains from  H  ena from an  anonymous donor.   In
          1947, George Arnemann donated  one skull from Kalihi Kai  and one
          from Ka aka aniu.   In 1948,  Mrs. William  Weinrich donated  one
          skull from  Kaua i.  In  1949, a  group of students  under K.  P.
          Emory,  excavated  thirteen  human   remains  a  rock  and  shell
          fragments from a  bull-dozed site at Wailua.  In 1951, the Museum
          recorded one set of  human remains from Po ip  from  an anonymous
          donor.   In  1956, Lawrence  P. Richards  donated one  skull from
          Aweoweonui.  In 1959, Adna Clarke, Jr., donated one  set of human
          remains  from  Hanap p .    In  1964,  Robert  N.  Bowen,  Museum

          Frederic O. Wolf, donated  one skull from Kaua i.  In 1965, Lloyd
          J.  Soehren, Museum  anthropologist, excavated  one set  of human
          remains and an animal bone fragment from Nu alolo.  In 1974, John
          E. Reinecke  donated the remains  of four partial  skeletons from
          Po ip .  In 1984, Stella Hobby donated one skull from Kaua i.  In
          1989, Andrew J. Hingsberger donated one skull from Nu alolo.

          No  known  individuals were  identified.    In consultation  with
          Native Hawaiian  organizations and  at their  recommendation, the
          Bishop  Museum decided that no attempt would be made to determine
          the age of the human remains from Kaua i.  Geographic location of
          the remains, types  of associated funerary objects, and method of
          burial preparation are recognizable as burial practices of Native
          Hawaiians    ancestral    to    contemporary   Native    Hawaiian
          organizations.

          Based on the  above information, officials of  the Bishop Museum,
          in  consultation with  representatives  of the  Kaua i /  Ni ihau
          Island Burial Council, Hui M lama I N  K puna  O Hawai i Nei, the
          Office  of Hawaiian Affairs, Edward Ka iwi and Aletha Kaohi, have
          determined  pursuant  to  25  U.S.C.  3001(2)  that  there  is  a
          relationship  of shared  group identity  which can  be reasonably
          traced  between these  remains  and  present-day Native  Hawaiian
          organizations.

          This notice  has been sent to the  Kaua i / Ni ihau Island Burial
          Council, Hui  M lama I N   K puna  O Hawai i  Nei, the Office  of
          Hawaiian Affairs, Edward Ka iwi and Aletha Kaohi. Representatives
          of any Native  Hawaiian organization which believes itself  to be
          culturally  affiliated with  these human  remains and  associated
          funerary   objects   should   contact   Anita   Manning,   NAGPRA
          Representative, Bernice  Pauahi Bishop  Museum, P. O.  Box 19000,
