Category: Alaska physical, cultural and historic features
Feature Type: Physical
Class: Island
Description: One of the Rat Islands; Aleutian Islands. 35 miles long and 3 miles wide.
History: Aleut name reported by early Russians as "Ostrov Amchitka." Baker (1906, p. 96), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), indicates that this may be the island named "St. Makarius (St. Markiana)" by Vitus Bering on October 25, 1741 (Old Style (O.S.) calendar). Golder (1922, p. 199-200), however, was of the opinion that Amchitka is too low to have been seen by Bering, and thus it is more probable that Kiska as the island so named.
