    This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals and number 
of associated funerary objects published in a Notice of Inventory 
Completion in the Federal Register (61 FR 7120, February 26, 1996). A 
review of records found that the human remains and associated funerary

Correction

    In the Federal Register (61 FR 7120, February 26, 1996), paragraph 
2, sentence 1 is corrected by substituting the following sentence:The 
human remains and funerary objects were collected from six sites by 
National Park Service archeologists in 1977.
    In the Federal Register (61 FR 7120, February 26, 1996), paragraph 
10 is corrected by deleting the entire paragraph.
    In the Federal Register (61 FR 7120, February 26, 1996), paragraph 
11 is corrected by substituting the following paragraph:

    Based on the above mentioned information, officials at Big 
Cypress National Preserve have determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 
10(d)(1), the human remains listed above represent the physical 
remains of at least three individuals of Native American ancestry. 
Officials of Big Cypress National Preserve have also determined 
that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A) and (B), the 5,041 objects 
listed 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. Lastly, officials of the Big Cypress 
National Preserve have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 
3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity which can 
be reasonably traced between the human remains and funerary objects 
from the six sites and the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians.

objects occurred after the 30-day waiting period expired for the
