History

Eskimo village or camp mentioned by Ivan Petroff in the 10th Census of 1880 as "Kukuak." It was called "Kok-wok-ha-mut," meaning "Kok-wok people," on a 1910 manuscript map by H. C. Fasset, U.S. Bureau of Fisheries (USBF). F. H. Waskey, a local resident, reported in 1931 that the name "Kokwok" was nearer the Eskimo pronunciation than "Kakuak or "Kakwok." The population of the village was 104 in 1880; 45 in 1890. The village is now abandoned.
