[[Page 48903]]

Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 
U.S.C. 3005, of a correction to the definition of cultural items 
previously under the control of the Field Museum of Natural History, 
Chicago, IL.
    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 had control of the Native 
American cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible 
for the determinations in this notice.
    This notice corrects the NAGPRA category of the cultural items 
published in a Notice of Intent to Repatriate in the Federal Register 
on August 24, 2007 (72 FR 48672-48675). After the Notice of Intent to 
Repatriate was published, the Field Museum staff determined that the 
objects meet the NAGPRA definitions for sacred objects and objects of 
cultural patrimony. Transfer of control of the items in this correction 
notice has occurred.

Correction

    In the Federal Register (72 FR 48672-48675), paragraph 1, sentence 
1 is corrected by substituting the following sentence:

Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves 
Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3005, of the 
intent to repatriate cultural items in the possession of the Field 
Museum of Natural History (Field Museum), Chicago, IL, that meet the 
definition of sacred objects and objects of cultural patrimony under 
25 U.S.C. 3001.

    In the Federal Register (72 FR 48672-48675), paragraph 23, sentence 
1 is corrected by substituting the following sentence:

Officials of the Field Museum of Natural History have determined 
that the 56 cultural items described in this notice are specific 
ceremonial objects needed by traditional Native American religious 
leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by 
their present-day adherents, and that the 56 cultural items 
described above have ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural 
importance central to the Native American group or culture itself, 
rather than property owned by an individual.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Transfer of control of the cultural items in this notice occurred 
after the 30-day waiting period expired for the original Notice of 
Intent to Repatriate. For questions related to this notice, contact 
Helen Robbins, Repatriation Director, Field Museum of Natural History, 
1400 South Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605, telephone (312) 665-
