This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3).

This notice corrects the number of associated funerary objects published in a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register (78 FR 53781, August 30, 2013). This correction comes after consultation with representatives from the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma; Miami Tribe of Oklahoma; and the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi Indians, Michigan and Indiana.
