National Park Service

Notice of Inventory Completion for Human Remains in the 
Possession of the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, Honolulu, HI; 

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. 3003, of the 
completion of an inventory of human remains in the possession and 
control of the Bishop Museum, Honolulu, HI. The human remains were 
removed from Lanai Island, HI.
    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 Native 
American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National 
Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice.
    This notice corrects the Native Hawaiian Organizations to whom the 
human remains will be repatriated.
    In the Federal Register of October 10, 2002 (FR Doc 02-25871, pages 
63151-63152), paragraph numbers 6 and 7 are corrected by substituting 
the following paragraphs:
    Officials of the Bishop Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 
U.S.C. 3001 (9-10), the human remains described above represent the 
physical remains of two individuals of Native Hawaiian ancestry. 
Officials of the Bishop Museum 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 Native Hawaiian human remains 
and Hui Kako`o and Hui Malama I Na Kupuna O Hawaii Nei. Lastly, 
officials of the Bishop Museum have determined that Hui Kako`o is the 
most appropriate claimant for repatriation of the human remains.
    Representatives of any other Native Hawaiian Organization that 
believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the human remains 
should contact Betty Lou Kam, Vice President, Cultural Studies, Bishop 
Museum, 1525 Bernice Street, Honolulu, HI 96817, telephone (808) 848-
4144, before June 30, 2008. Repatriation to Hui Kako`o will proceed 
after that date if no additional claimants come forward.
    The Bishop Museum is responsible for notifying Hui Kako`o, Lana`i 
Island Burial Council, Hui Malama I Na Kupuna O Hawaii Nei, and Office 
of Hawaiian Affairs.
