formed by its W and E arms, on S coast of Attu I., Aleutian Islands.
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."
