near head of Imuruk Basin, 25 mi. E of Teller, Seward Peninsula High.
Site of an Eskimo village. Lieutenant L. A. Zagoskin, Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), 1842-44, wrote the name of the village as "Kaviag-miut" and said it meant "Fox." Members of the Western Union Telegraph Expedition spelled the name variously in the "Esquimaux," their monthly newspaper published at Teller, 1866-67. In the 10th Census, in 1880, Petroff (1884, p. 11) listed a population of 200 Eskimo. The 11th Census, in 1890, (p. 130) included "Kaviagmiut" in the Port Clarence village. Subsequent censuses have not recorded this village.
