|Category:||Alaska physical, cultural and historic features|
|Description:||southernmost of Shumagin Is., Aleutian Range. 5 miles long.|
|History:||"Chernoburie" is the Russian word for "black-brown" and sometimes refers to a priest clad in this color. The island was shown as "Chernobour Island" by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) on an 1891 coast chart and was listed by Baker (1906, p. 173), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as "Chernabura Island." The Aleut name is "Nunik," meaning "porcupine." which was published as "Nunak" by Lieutenant Sarichev (1806, v. 2, p. 15), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN). Captain Lutke (1836, p. 267), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), showed the island as "Nuniak" and "Tounak," the latter name probably a typographical error, where as Father Veniaminov (180, v. 1, p. 65) spelled the name "Nyunyak" and "Nunik."|
