Notice is here given in accordance with the Start Printed Page 48903Native 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:

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.
