Description: site of a Haida Indian village, on SW coast of Long I., Alex. Arch.
History: Name reported by Reverend Sheldon Jackson in 1880. This village, called "Klinkwan" by Baker (1906, p. 371), was absorbed by the village of "Kaihani" which, in turn, was abandoned in 1911 when the village of "Hydaburg" was established to centralize the school system. Mrs. Clara McLeod, an early teacher at Howkan wrote to U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS), "The name sometimes spelled "Koranhunglus" is said to mean 'muddy water'. About 1885 two of the natives were drowned and through native superstitions the village was deserted * * *." See Kaigani and Klinkwan.
