Notice of Inventory Completion: Peabody Museum of Archaeology and 
Ethnology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA; Correction

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 of the 
Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, 
Cambridge, MA. The human remains were removed from the Trudeau Site in 
West Feliciana Parish, LA.
    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. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.
    This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals reported in 
a Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register (66 
FR 51464, October 9, 2001) from four to seven individuals. These 
additional individuals were found during the Peabody Museum's ongoing 
inventory process since the publication of the original notice.
    In the Federal Register, paragraph number 2, page 51464, is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    In 1972, individuals representing seven individuals were collected 
from the Trudeau site in West Feliciana Parish, LA, by Jeffrey P. Brain 
as part of the Lower Mississippi Survey expedition. The Lower 
Mississippi Survey was a project of Harvard University faculty in 1972. 
No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects 
are present.
    In the Federal Register, paragraph number 4, page 51464, is 
corrected by substituting the following paragraph:
    Officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology have 
determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains 
represent the physical remains of seven individuals of Native American 
ancestry. Officials of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology 
also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a 
relationship

of shared group identity that can reasonably be traced between the 
Native American human remains and the Tunica-Biloxi Indian Tribe of 
Louisiana.
    Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to 
be culturally affiliated with the human remains should contact Patricia 
Capone, Repatriation Coordinator, Peabody Museum of Archaeology and 
Ethnology, Harvard University, 11 Divinity Ave., Cambridge, MA 02138, 
telephone (617) 496-3702, before October 25, 2010. Repatriation of the 
human remains to the Tunica-Biloxi Indian Tribe of Louisiana may 
proceed after that date if no additional claimants come forward.
    The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology is responsible for 
notifying the Tunica-Biloxi Indian Tribe of Louisiana that this notice 
has been published.
