Notice of Inventory Completion for Native American Human Remains
and Associated Funerary Objects in the Possession of the Robert S.
Peabody Museum of Archaeology, Andover, MA

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

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

    Notice is hereby given in accordance with provisions of the Native
American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 43 CFR 10.9,
of the completion of an inventory of human remains and associated
funerary objects in the possession of the Robert S. Peabody Museum of
Archaeology, Andover, MA.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 43 CFR 10.2 (c). The
determinations within this notice are the sole responsibility of the
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of these Native
American human remains and associated funerary objects. The National
Park Service is not responsible for the determinations within this
notice.
    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by Robert S.
Peabody Museum of Archaeology professional staff in consultation with
representatives of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of the Cheyenne River
Reservation, South Dakota; the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe of the Crow Creek
Reservation, South Dakota; the Spirit Lake Tribe, North Dakota; the
Lower Sioux Indian Community of Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of
the Lower Sioux Reservation in Minnesota; the Oglala Sioux Tribe of the
Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota; the Rosebud Sioux Tribe of the
Rosebud Indian Reservation, South Dakota; the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
of North and South Dakota; the Santee Sioux Tribe of the Santee
Reservation of Nebraska; the Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota; the
Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation,
Montana; the Prairie Island Indian Community of Minnesota Mdewakanton
Sioux Indians of the Prairie Island Reservation, Minnesota; the Upper
Sioux Indian Community of the Upper Sioux Reservation, Minnesota; the
Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe of the Lake Traverse Reservation, South
Dakota; the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe of South Dakota; the Lower
Brule Sioux Tribe of the Lower Brule Reservation, South Dakota; and the
Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota (Prior Lake).
    In 1869, human remains representing one individual were collected
by Warren King Moorehead. In 1895, Mr. Moorehead donated these human
remains to the Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology. No known
individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
    An original card with the human remains states these human remains
are those of a Sioux scout killed at Summit Springs, SD, in 1869.
Cultural affiliation has been established based on the information on
this card. There is no existing information to contradict this finding.
    Based on the above-mentioned information, officials of the Robert
S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology have determined that, pursuant to 43
CFR 10.2 (d)(1), the human remains listed above represent the physical
remains of one individual of Native American ancestry. Officials of the
Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology also have determined that,
pursuant to 43 CFR 10.2 (e), there is a relationship of shared group
identity that can be reasonably traced between these Native American
human remains and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of the Cheyenne River
Reservation, South Dakota; the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe of the Crow Creek
Reservation, South Dakota; the Spirit Lake Tribe, North Dakota; the
Lower Sioux Indian Community of Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians of
the Lower Sioux Reservation in Minnesota; the Oglala Sioux Tribe of the
Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota; the Rosebud Sioux Tribe of the
Rosebud Indian Reservation, South Dakota; the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
of North and South Dakota; the Santee Sioux Tribe of the Santee
Reservation of Nebraska; the Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota; the
Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation,
Montana; the Prairie Island Indian Community of Minnesota Mdewakanton
Sioux Indians of the Prairie Island Reservation, Minnesota; the Upper
Sioux Indian Community of the Upper Sioux Reservation, Minnesota; the
Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe of the Lake Traverse Reservation, South
Dakota; the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe of South Dakota; the Lower
Brule Sioux Tribe of the Lower Brule Reservation, South Dakota; and the
Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community of Minnesota (Prior Lake). This
notice has been sent to officials of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of
the Cheyenne River Reservation, South Dakota; the Crow Creek Sioux
Tribe of the Crow Creek
