History

An Aleut name meaning "dropping" reported by Putnam (1903, p. 1014), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS); so named because sea lions, when being driven, "would drop off the low bluff down to the beach, where natives would hug close to the bank to allow th e sea lions to pass over their heads. Two natives have been killed here by being crushed by sea-lions.
