History

Name published by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 23), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), as Seleniye Chiniak (Aleksashkina) or Chiniak Settlement (Aleksashkina). Lieutenant Sarichev (1826, map 16), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), published the name Aleutskoye Aleksashkino Zhilo or the Aleut dwellings of Aleksashkino, but applied this name 2 miles to the southeast, at Lake Una. This is probably the village referred to by Ameigh and Chaffin (1962, p. 53) who said, the 157 natives living on Woody Island in a little village of approximately fifteen log cabins, made their living during the summer months as sea otter hunters***. See Woody Island.
