History

The name Tlevaak Strait appears to be due to (Captain M.D.) Tebenkov Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), and may have its origin in the same root as the name of Klahuak (Klawock) settlement and Tlevakhan Gulf (Klawak Inlet) farther north (Dall, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), 1883, p. 69). The name was published in 1952 as "Proliv Tlevaak" i.e. "Tlevaak Strait," by the Russian Hydrographic Dept. on Chart 1493.
