Temnac Bay in Detail.


On the S cost of Attuu Island, 6 mi NE of Theodore Point, Aleutian Islands.


Named for a native of Attu Island who was taken from his home to Kamchatka by Michael Nevidiskov, the navigator of the merchant fur-hunting vessel Yevdokia, in 1746, to facilitate the Russians' knowledge of the native language. Temnac confirmed the suspicions of the Russian authorities by telling them about the cruel treatment given the natives by the hunters on the island. He was later baptized as Paul and adopted by Nevidiskov. (Coxe, 1787, p. 30-31, and Bancroft, 1886, p. 102-107). This name was first published in 1943 on an Army Map Service (AMS) map.
