Named for a chief of the Auk Tlingit Indians, who had his summer home at the mouth of creek and who is credited with guiding Joe Juneau and Richard Harris to the gold of the Silverbow Basin in 1880. Early miners spelled the name "Kowee" or "Kow-eeh," but after the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) mapped the area in 1903 the name was published as "Cowee Creek" (DeArmond, 1957, p. 13).
