Correction

In the Federal Register (85 FR 27436, May 8, 2020), column 3, paragraph 3, is corrected by substituting the following paragraph:

Between 1936 and 1939, human remains representing, at minimum, 54 individuals were removed from site AZ U:9:1(ASM)/Pueblo Grande in Maricopa County, AZ, by PGM personnel. These excavations occurred in multiple areas of the site, and the majority of this work was conducted under the supervision of Julian Hayden. The human remains have been in the collections of PGM since they were excavated, but some individuals were not identified until 2018, during a review of the faunal and unprovenanced collections. The human remains belong to 37 cremated individuals and 17 individuals from inhumations. The individuals range in age from fetal to old adult and include both males and females. No known individuals were identified. The 125 associated funerary objects are 18 ceramic bowls of plain ware, red ware, and red-on-buff ware; eight ceramic jars of plain ware and Black Mesa black-on-white ware; one ceramic pitcher; one seed jar; three scoops of red ware and red-on-buff ware; four environmental samples; two lots of textile fragments; one spindle whorl; 13 lots of worked faunal bones that include awls; eight lots of shells; seven lots of shell jewelry that include bracelets, pendants, and beads; 25 lots of ceramic sherds of plain ware, red ware, red-on-buff ware, and polychrome ware; nine lots of faunal bones, including the remains of a red-tailed hawk burial; six vessel fragments/partial vessels; one piece of stone jewelry; one worked sherd; one polishing stone; one lot of charcoal; three lots of a white chalky substance (possibly burned caliche or shell); two axes; one hammerstone; one red-on-buff censer; three palettes; two lithics; one projectile point; one turtle carapace; and one figurine.
