History

Aleut name reported by W. W. Duffield, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), in 1897. Putnam (1903, p. 1015), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), gives the meaning as "place where they get whales *** so called because whales are said to have been cut up by the natives on the shore below this bluff, and carried away in bidarkas." Putnam presents the name as "Suskara'logh (Saskare'loj)."
