History

An Aleut name listed as "Ka'wa-nar'a" by Putnam (1903, p. 1015), U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), meaning "'sea lions' bidarra or boat." Putnam says it is a "prominent high ledge projecting from shore line to about middle of East Rookery (Great Eastern Rookery), occupied by numerous sea lions."
