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.
