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 and associated funerary objects under the control of the San Diego Museum of Man, San Diego, CA. The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from various locations in the La Jolla area of San Diego, San Diego County, CA.

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 and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice.

This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals and number of associated funerary objects published in a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register (81 FR 4650-4651, January 27, 2016). The correction is being made as a re-inventory discovered more human remains and associated funerary objects linked with the archeological sites listed in the previous Notice of Inventory Completion. Also, additional consultation with the Kumeyaay Nation determined that these archeological sites are considered entirely cemetery sites based on traditional Kumeyaay burial practices. Transfer of control of the items in this correction notice has not occurred.
