2012. This notice corrects the list of tribes consulted and the tribes 
eligible to receive disposition of the human remains and associated

Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with the 
human remains may contact the Southern Oregon Historical Society. 
Disposition of the human remains and associated funerary objects to the 
Indian tribes stated below may occur if no additional claimants come 
forward.

DATES: Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes it has a

ADDRESSES: Tina Reuwsaat, Southern Oregon Historical Society, 106 N. 
Central Ave., Medford, OR 97501, telephone (541) 858-1724 ext. 1001.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is here given in accordance with the 
Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3003, of the correction of an inventory of human remains and 
associated funerary objects in the possession of the Southern Oregon 
Historical Society, Medford, OR.
    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 list of tribes consulted and the tribes 
eligible to receive disposition of the human remains and associated 
funerary objects published in a Notice of Inventory Completion in the 
Federal Register (77 FR 51565-51566, August 24, 2012). Following 
publication, an additional tribe came forward requesting to be added to 
the notice.

Correction

    In the Federal Register (77 FR 51565-51566, August 24, 2012), 
paragraph six is corrected by substituting the following paragraph:

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the 
Southern Oregon Historical Society professional staff in 
consultation with representatives of the Confederated Tribes of the 
Grand Ronde Community of Oregon; the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua 
Indians of Oregon; and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of 
Oregon (previously listed as the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz 
Reservation). The following tribes were contacted without response: 
Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians of 
Oregon; Coquille Tribe of Oregon; and the Quartz Valley Indian 
Community of the Quartz Valley Reservation of California.

    In the Federal Register (77 FR 51565-51566, August 24, 2012), 
paragraph eight, bullets three and six are corrected by replacing ``the 
Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon'' with ``the 
Confederate Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the 
Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon (previously listed as 
the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Reservation).''

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Representatives of any Indian tribe that believes itself to be 
culturally affiliated with the human remains or any other Indian tribe 
that believes it satisfies the criteria in 43 CFR 10.11(c)(1) should 
contact Tina Reuwsaat at the Southern Oregon Historical Society, 106 N. 
Central Avenue, Medford, OR 97520, telephone (541) 858-1724 ext. 1001, 
before January 17, 2013. Disposition of the human remains and 
associated funerary objects to the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and 
the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon (previously listed 
as the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Reservation) may proceed after 
that date if no additional requestors come forward.
    The Southern Oregon Historical Society is responsible for notifying 
the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon; the Cow 
Creek Band of Umpqua Indians of Oregon; and the Confederated Tribes of 
Siletz Indians of Oregon (previously listed as the Confederated Tribes 
of the Siletz Reservation) that this notice has been published.
