W of Barter I., between Arey Lagoon and Beaufort Sea, Arctic Plain. 7 miles long.
Originally named "Barter Island" August 4, 1826, by Sir John Franklin (1828, p. 147). Local usage applied Barter Island to the large island E of this. In July 1907 Leffingwell (1919, p. 13, 93) mapped and renamed the above location for the prospector H. T. ("Ned") Arey, originally from Cape Cod, Mass., who lived in the neighborhood several years, and assisted him in explorations on the Okpilak River. The Eskimo name of the island is "Nalageavik," reported in 1948 by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS).
