History

The village of this name was destroyed by the March 27, 1964, earthquake; the residents were moved to Kodiak Island and were set up in a new village named Port Lions. The name derives from Afognak Island; reported in the 11th Census of 1890 (1893, p. 73-74) as "Afognak Village (Adognak)" consisting of a series of settlements extending in a row of dwellings, somewhat widely scattered, about three-fourths of a mile along the long, curving beach. In the first quarter of the nineteenth century, the name Rutkovsky village was applied by pensioned employees of the Russian American Company.
