This name is first mentioned in Hrdlicka's (1943, p. 67) diary on July 7, 1926. a U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) report of 1949 states "so called because an old village of 32 kazygas (native dwellings) was thought to have been located here. Repeated searches by anthropologists have failed to turn up any trace."
