SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. Start Printed Page 604423003, of the correction of an inventory of human remains under the control of the Arkansas Archeological Survey, Fayetteville, AR. The human remains were removed from Arkansas County, AR.

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 (82 FR 11608-11617, February 24, 2017). Private individuals removed the human remains from Arkansas County in the 1930s and 1940s. These collections were acquired by the Joint Educational Consortium of Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University in 1977 and were transferred to the Arkansas Archeological Survey in 2017 to undergo the NAGPRA process. Transfer of control of the items in this correction notice has not occurred.

Correction

In the Federal Register (82 FR 11608, February 24, 2017), column 3, paragraph 1, sentence 1 is corrected by substituting the following sentence:

In the 1930s to 1940s and in 1996, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals were recovered from the Wallace site (3AR25) in Arkansas County, Arkansas.

In the Federal Register (82 FR 11608, February 24, 2017), column 3, paragraph 1, sentence 4 is corrected by substituting the following sentence:

Diagnostic artifacts found at the Wallace site (3AR25) indicate that these human remains were probably buried during the Mississippi Period (A.D. 950-1541) or the Protohistoric Period (A.D. 1500-1700).

In the Federal Register (82 FR 11617, February 24, 2017), column 1, paragraph 1, sentence 1 is corrected by substituting the following sentence:

Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described in this notice represent the physical remains of 277 individuals of Native American Ancestry.

Additional Requestors and Disposition
