History

Translation by Baker (1906, p. 227) of "Seleniye Selezneva," meaning "Drake Village," published by Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 23), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN). The Russian Hydrographic Dept. published the name "M(ys) Seleznevskago Seleniya," meaning "Cape Drake Village," in 1849 on Chart 1425. According to Father Veniaminov (1846) the Aleut name for this village is "Kalagak," which, according to R. H. Geoghegan, comes from the word "kalagaq" meaning "drake."
