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 under the control of Grand Valley State University, Allendale, MI. The human remains were removed from near Muir, Ionia County, MI.

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 minimum number of individuals published in a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register (80 FR 6014, February 4, 2015). Re-inventory of a collection donated to Grand Valley State University by an avocational archeologist in 2001 revealed the presence of several cranial elements from a minimum number of one individual. No other human remains were identified in the collection. Transfer of control of the items in this correction notice has not occurred.

Correction

In the Federal Register (80 FR 6018, February 4, 2015), paragraph 3 is corrected by inserting the following paragraph:

On an unknown date between 1950 and 1990, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual were removed from an archeological site in the vicinity of Muir Michigan in Ionia County by avocational archeologist Buerl Guernsey. Guernsey subsequently donated his collection in 2001 to the Grand Valley State University Department of Anthropology Laboratory. The remains are those of an adult of undetermined sex and were recovered during surface collection from one of a series of sites in the vicinity. The date and time period for the remains is unknown because sites from the Woodland to Late Prehistoric (600 B.C.-A.D. 1640) are present in the area. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present.

In the Federal Register (80 FR 6018, February 4, 2015), paragraph 4 is corrected by substituting the following paragraph:

Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 112 individuals of Native American ancestry.
