History

This stream was named for Frank Amadeus, trapper, prospector, and "long-time resident of the area." The Amadens spelling is a typographical error that has been perpetuated. U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) reported in 1949 the Eskimo name as "Kinarak", meaning "something to look through."
