DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service Notice of Inventory Completion: U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Whitman Mission National Historic Site, Walla Walla, WA
AGENCY: ACTION:

National Park Service, Interior. Notice.

Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, Sec. 5, of the completion of an inventory of human remains and associated funerary objects in the possession of Whitman Mission National Historic Site, Walla Walla, WA. These human remains and cultural items were removed from a burial site at Whitman Mission National Historic Site. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003, Sec. 5 (d)(3). The determinations within this notice are the sole responsibility of the National Park unit that has control of these Native American human remains and associated funerary objects. The Manager, National NAGPRA Program is not responsible for the determinations within this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by National Park

Service and Oregon State Museum of Anthropology professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon. In July 1961, human remains representing a minimum of one individual were removed from a burial at Whitman Mission National Historic Site in Walla Walla, Washington during legally authorized excavations by NPS archeologist Paul Schumacher. The human skeletal remains were removed from Whitman Mission and were delivered to the University of Oregon. In January 1962 David L. Cole completed a detailed description of the skeletal remains and identified them as representing a male Native American individual who had been approximately 45-55 years old at the time of death. The burial was characterized as a Christian burial in a coffin that dated to the early historic period (1830s) when the Whitmans operated a mission among the Cayuse. In preparation for repatriation the NPS took possession of this set of human remains in August 1996. No known individuals were identified. The 20 associated funerary objects are 6 fragments of wood from a coffin, 1 bag of wood particles, 8 corroded nails with some attached wood pieces, 1 copper brad, 2 bone buttons, 1 shell button and 1 dentalia shell bead. Whitman Mission National Historic Site commemorates the history of a mission established by Marcus and Narcissa Whitman in the 1830s on land that was primarily occupied by Cayuse Indians at the time. The site of the mission settlement is widely recognized as having been part of a larger aboriginal Cayuse territory and is within the judicially established area that is officially recognized as the Cayuse homeland. Immediately to the west of the Cayuse territory was the aboriginal homeland of the Walla Walla tribe. To the west of the Cayuse and southwest of the Walla Walla was the recognized aboriginal homeland of the Umatilla tribe. The Cayuse, the Walla Walla and the Umatilla are all constituent tribes of the present-day Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon. Officials of Whitman Mission National Historic Site have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001, Sec. 2 (9-10), the human remains listed above represent the physical remains of one individual of Native American ancestry. Officials of Whitman Mission National Historic Site also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001, Sec. 2 (3)(A), the 20 objects listed above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of

by Reclamation and is managed for recreational purposes by the City’s Parks and Recreation Department (PRD) under a 1986 Recreation Land Use Agreement (RLUA). The final EIS describes the anticipated environmental effects associated with a new recreation master plan for Reach 11. A proposed action and two action alternative master plans have been considered in the EIS. A No Action Alternative is also described, which provides a baseline for comparing the impacts of the three action alternatives. DATES: No decision will be made on the proposed action until 30 days after the release of the final EIS. After the 30-day waiting period, Reclamation will complete a Record of Decision (ROD). ADDRESSES: Copies of the final EIS are available for public inspection and review at the locations listed in the Supplementary Information section below.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Sandra Eto, Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office (PXAO–1500), PO Box 81169, Phoenix, AZ 85069–1169, telephone 602–216–3857. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The final EIS considers the effects of approving a new Recreation Master Plan for Reach 11. Reach 11 is managed for recreational purposes by the PRD, consistent with the 1986 RLUA pursuant to Title 28, Federal Water Project Recreation Act of 1965 (Pub. L. 89–72, as amended). The current master plan was approved in 1987. The City and Reclamation determined a comprehensive planning effort for a new master plan should be carried out, due to the major population growth that has occurred and future growth anticipated for the area. This effort included conducting a recreation needs assessment to inventory existing facilities in the vicinity of Reach 11, and evaluating needs based upon established park standards, existing capacity, and public interest in or opposition to various recreation uses. The purpose and need for a new Recreation Master Plan is to optimize recreational use of Reach 11 based upon the needs of the City and community, while ensuring compatibility with the primary flood control function of Reach 11. A master plan would accommodate and respect the full range of current and future recreation demands of this growing area of Phoenix, Arizona. The final EIS considers three alternative master plan scenarios. All three provide a level of development established for a City district park. Under the Proposed Action, high-demand recreation needs

the death rite or ceremony. Lastly, officials of Whitman Mission National Historic Site have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001, Sec. 2 (2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between these Native American human remains and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon. Representatives of any other Indian tribe that believes itself to be culturally affiliated with these human remains and associated funerary objects should contact Superintendent Francis T. Darby, Whitman Mission National Historic Site, 328 Whitman Mission Road, Walla Walla, Washington 993629699, telephone (509) 522-6360, before December 9, 2002. Repatriation of these human remains and associated funerary objects to the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon may begin after that date if no additional claimants come forward. Whitman Mission National Historic Site is responsible for notifying the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon that this notice has been published.

would be balanced with passive recreation uses and maintenance of quality habitat areas. Two other alternative action alternatives are considered: One that would provide less active recreation-oriented development and emphasizes passive recreationoriented activities (Alternative 1), and one that would maximize development of active-recreation oriented recreation facilities (Alternative 2). The No Action Alternative assumes the existing 1987 master plan, (which does not meet current PRD district park standards), would continue to be implemented. The alternative ultimately selected and implemented is expected to be developed in phases by PRD, as funding becomes available. The draft EIS was issued November 9, 2001. Responses to comments received from interested organizations and individuals on the draft EIS are addressed in the final EIS. Locations for public inspection and review of the final EIS: • Department of the Interior, Natural Resources Library, 1849 C Street, NW, Washington, DC 20240. • Bureau of Reclamation, Denver Office Library, Building 67, Room 167, Denver Federal Center, 6th and Kipling, Denver CO 80225. • Arizona Department of Library Archives and Public Records, 1700 West Washington St., Phoenix AZ 85007. • North Central Regional County Library, 17811 N. 32nd St., Phoenix AZ 85032. • Phoenix Public Library (Burton Barr Central), 1221 N. Central Ave., Phoenix AZ 85004. • Government Document Service, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 85281. • Arizona State University—West Library, 4701 W. Thunderbird Rd., Glendale AZ 85306. After release of the final EIS and the end of the 30-day waiting period, Reclamation will complete a Record of Decision (ROD). The ROD will state the action that will be implemented and will discuss all factors leading to the decision.
