SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Notice is
here given in accordance with the
Native American Graves Protection and
Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C.
3005, of the intent to repatriate a
cultural item under the control of the
Denver Museum of Nature & Science,
Denver, CO, that meets the definition of
a sacred object and the definition of an
object of cultural patrimony under 25
U.S.C. 3001.
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 cultural items. The National
Park Service is not responsible for the
determinations in this notice.
History and Description of the Cultural
Item
On an unknown date, Pat Read, owner
of Pat Read Trading Company in
Lawrence, KS, obtained a cultural item
from an unknown source. On September
21, 1954, the item, a False Face mask
(AC.290), was purchased from Read by
Mary and Francis Crane. In November of
1972, Mary Crane donated the mask to
the Denver Museum of Nature & Science
(then called the Denver Museum of
Natural History).
In 1974, anthropologist William
Fenton stated that, based on his
knowledge and expertise, the mask was
‘‘not typical of Iroquois work.’’
Furthermore, in 1999, during
consultations between Haudenosaunee
representatives and Denver Museum of
Nature & Science curator Joyce Herold,
certain cultural experts remarked that
the mask was ‘‘probably not Iroquois
made’’ and that it ‘‘should be shown to
the Seneca-Cayuga in Oklahoma.’’
Following research conducted during
2015–2017, the Denver Museum of
Nature & Science determined that, based
on geographical, folkloric, oral
traditional, and historical information,
and consultation, this False Face Mask
is culturally affiliated with the Seneca-
Cayuga Nation.
Determinations Made by the Denver
Museum of Nature & Science
Officials of the Denver Museum of
Nature & Science have determined that:
Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(C),
the one cultural item described above is
a specific ceremonial object needed by
traditional Native American religious
leaders for the practice of traditional
Native American religions by their
present-day adherents.
Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(D),
the one cultural item described above
has ongoing historical, traditional, or
cultural importance central to the
Native American group or culture itself,
rather than property owned by an
individual.
Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there
is a relationship of shared group
identity that can be reasonably traced
between the sacred object and object of
cultural patrimony and the Seneca-
Cayuga Nation [previously listed as
Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma].
Additional Requestors and Disposition
Lineal descendants or representatives
of any Indian Tribe or Native Hawaiian
organization not identified in this notice
that wish to claim this cultural item
should submit a written request with
information in support of the claim to
Dr. Stephen E. Nash, Director of
Anthropology, Denver Museum of
Nature & Science, 2001 Colorado
Boulevard, Denver, CO 80205,
telephone (303) 370–6056, email
Stephen.Nash@dmns.org, by December
6, 2021. After that date, if no additional
claimants have come forward, transfer
of control of the sacred object and object
of cultural patrimony to the Seneca-
Cayuga Nation [previously listed as
Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma] may
proceed.
The Denver Museum of Nature &
Science is responsible for notifying the
Seneca-Cayuga Nation [previously listed
as Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma]
that this notice has been published.
Dated: October 23, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Grant Notification
We are notifying the public that we
intend to grant funds to eligible
applicants for purposes authorized
under SMCRA’s Title IV AML
Reclamation Program and Title V
Regulatory Program. We will award
these grants during fiscal year 2022.
Eligible applicants are those States and
Tribes with an existing AML
reclamation program and/or a regulatory
program approved pursuant to SMCRA,
as amended, 30 U.S.C. 1201 et seq., and,
as provided in 30 U.S.C. 1295, those
States and Tribes that are seeking to
develop a regulatory program.
Consistent with Executive Order 12372,
we are providing State and Tribal
officials the opportunity to review and
comment on these proposed Federal
financial assistance activities. Of the
eligible applicants, eighteen States or
Tribes do not have single points of
contact; therefore, we are publishing
this notice as an alternate means of
notification.
Description of the AML Reclamation
Program
SMCRA established the Abandoned
Mine Reclamation Fund to receive the
AML fees that, along with funds from
other sources, are used to finance
reclamation of AML coal mine sites and
for certain other purposes. Title IV of
SMCRA authorizes OSMRE to provide
grants, funded from permanent
(mandatory) appropriations, to eligible
States and Tribes. Recipients use these
funds: To reclaim the highest priority
AML coal mine sites that were
abandoned prior to the enactment of
SMCRA in 1977; to reclaim eligible non-
coal sites; for projects that address the
impacts of mineral development; and
for non-reclamation projects.
Description of the Regulatory Program
Title V of SMCRA authorizes OSMRE
to provide grants to States and Tribes to
develop, administer, and enforce State
and Tribal regulatory programs that
address, among other things, the
disturbances from coal mining
operations. Additionally, upon our
approval of a State or Tribal regulatory
program, Title V authorizes that State or
Tribe to assume regulatory primacy and
act as the regulatory authority within
the State or Tribe, and to administer and
enforce its approved regulatory
program. These provisions of SMCRA
are implemented by our regulations at
Title 30 of the Code of Federal
Regulations, Chapter VII.
