History

Named for Michael Nevidiskov, navigator of the Russian vessel Yevdokia. Nevidiskov may have been the first Caucasian to land on Attu Island in 1745. He took a native islander, called "Temnac," home with him in order to learn the language spoken on the islands (Coxe, 1787, p. 30). Bancroft (1886, p. 111), spelled the name "Nevodchikof."
