Correction; Notice of Inventory Completion for Native American
Human Remains and Associated Funerary Objects in the Possession of
Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, National Park Service, Harrison,
NE and Scotts Bluff National Monument, National Park Service, Gerring,
NE

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Park Service published a notice of inventory
completion in the Federal Register on May 23, 2000 for Native American
human remains and associated funerary objects from Agate Fossil Beds
National Monument and Scotts Bluff National Monument. The notice
incorrectly listed one human skull as likely representing the remains
of a Native American individual and one deer bone associated with these
remains as an associated funerary object. Based on additional
information provided by an August 2000 bioanthropological analysis of
this skull, the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument superintendent
determined that the human remains are not Native American and,
therefore, the deer bone associated with these remains is not an
associated funerary object.

Correction

    In the Federal Register of May 23, 2000, FR Doc. 00-12852, page
33350, in the second column, the paragraph beginning ``In 1968, human
remains representing eight individuals'' is corrected as follows to
reflect changes in the number of human remains and associated funerary
objects:

    In 1968, human remains representing seven individuals were donated
to Agate Fossil Beds National Monument by Margaret Cook. No known
individuals were identified. The 10 associated funerary objects consist
of 1 soil burial matrix containing numerous glass beads, 6 shell
buttons and button fragments, 1 brass bell, 1 collection of cloth and
leather fragments and 1 collection of plant seeds.

    In the Federal Register of May 23, 2000, FR Doc. 00-12852, page
33350, in the third column, the paragraph beginning ``Through the
physical anthropological examinations'' is corrected by deleting the
following sentence:

    The physical anthropological examinations also determined that one
of the individuals described above is likely Native American.

    In the Federal Register of May 23, 2000, FR Doc. 00-12852,
beginning on page 33350 in the third column and ending on page 33351 in
the first column, the following sentences are corrected to reflect
changes in the number of human remains and associated funerary objects:

    Based on the above-mentioned information, the Agate Fossil Beds
National Monument and Scotts Bluff National Monument superintendents
determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2 (d)(1), the human remains
listed above represent 18 individuals of Native American ancestry. The
Agate Fossil Beds National Monument and Scotts Bluff National Monument
superintendents also determined that, pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2(d)(2),
the 15 associated funerary 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.
