Park Service is not responsible for the
determinations in this notice.
History and Description of the Cultural
Items
In 1960, Cheekwood received on loan
eight sacred objects and three objects of
cultural patrimony. In 1972, Cheekwood
formally accessioned these objects. The
eight sacred objects are one t-type
pipestone pipe bowl; one ribbon-
wrapped pipe stem attributed to
Taoyate Duta (Chief Little Crow); one
beaded, twisted and painted pipe stem;
one beaded, velvet pipe bag; one eagle
claw pipestone pipe bowl; one ribbon-
wrapped pipe stem; one war shield; and
one whip handle. The three objects of
cultural patrimony are one stone maul,
one stone mace, and one bow with
lightning design.
Based on consultation with
representatives of the Prairie Island
Indian Community in the State of
Minnesota, Cheekwood has determined
the identity of these 11 cultural items
and their cultural affiliation with this
Indian Tribe.
Determinations Made by the
Cheekwood Estate and Gardens
Officials of the Cheekwood Estate and
Gardens have determined that:
Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(C),
the eight cultural items described above
are specific ceremonial objects 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 three cultural items described above
have 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 objects and objects
of cultural patrimony and the Prairie
Island Indian Community in the State of
Minnesota.
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 these cultural items
should submit a written request with
information in support of the claim to
Hannah Morgan, Cheekwood Estate and
Gardens, 1200 Forrest Park Drive,
Nashville, TN 37205, telephone (615)
353–2160, email hmorgan@
cheekwood.org, by April 4, 2022. After
that date, if no additional claimants
have come forward, transfer of control
of the sacred objects and objects of
cultural patrimony to the Prairie Island
Indian Community in the State of
Minnesota may proceed.
The Cheekwood Estate and Gardens is
responsible for notifying the Prairie
Island Indian Community in the State of
Minnesota that this notice has been
published.

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 cultural
items under the control of Boston
University, Boston, MA, that meet both

American cultural items. The National
Park Service is not responsible for the

History and Description of the Cultural
Items
Sometime prior to November 3, 1936,
two cultural items were removed from
an unknown location in Montana. These
items (inventory numbers 1591 and
1592) were collected or acquired by
Charles Herbert Mitchell (1857–1936).
In 1936, Mr. Mitchell’s family donated
a portion of his collection, including
these items, to Boston University. The
two sacred objects/objects of cultural
patrimony are two pipestone vessels.
Based on information provided by the
Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort
Peck Indian Reservation, Montana
during consultation and in the Tribe’s
repatriation request, the institution has
determined that the pipestone vessels
are culturally affiliated with the
Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort
Peck Indian Reservation, Montana, and
that they meet both the definition of
sacred objects and the definition of
objects of cultural patrimony.
Determinations Made by Boston
University
Officials of Boston University have
determined that:
Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(C),

of cultural patrimony and the
