In the Federal Register (84 FR 38049, August 5, 2019), column 1, paragraph 2, sentences 1 and 2 under the heading “Consultation” are corrected by substituting the following sentences:

A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History (LACMNH) professional staff in consultation with representatives of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, California (previously listed as the San Manual Band of Serrano Mission Indians of the San Manual Reservation); Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians, a non-federally recognized Indian group; and the San Fernando Band of Mission Indians, a non-federally recognized Indian group. The Morongo Band of Mission Indians, California (previously listed as the Morongo Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians of the Morongo Reservation); Santa Rosa Indian Community of the Santa Rosa Rancheria, California; and the Tejon Indian Tribe were invited to consult but deferred to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, California (previously listed as the San Manual Band of Serrano Mission Indians of the San Manual Reservation).

In the Federal Register (84 FR 38050, August 5, 2019), column 2, sentence 1 is corrected by substituting the following sentence:

Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, California (previously listed as the San Manual Band of Serrano Mission Indians of the San Manual Reservation), as well as, the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians and the San Fernando Band of Mission Indians, both of which are non-federally recognized Indian groups.
