History: Utoqaq is an Eskimo word meaning "old" or "ancient," and as a name was applied to the Eskimo living on the river and in the vicinity of Icy Cape near the stream's mouth. The Utukok people were first mentioned, as such, by Lieutenant Zagoskin (1847, p. 74), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN), as the "Utukak-myut" or "Utukak people." Zagoskin received his information from Kashevarov whose Creole guide named "Utuktat" drew a map of the coast S of Barrow in 1838. The villages where many of these "Ututok" people lived in 1880 were referred to as "Otok-kok" in the 10th U. S. Census, and late 19th century maps show at least two villages with this name. One was located at the mouth of the Utukok River and the other at or near Icy Cape. Russian Hydrographic Dept. Chart 1495, dated 1854, shows the name "sel(enie) Kayakishvigmyut" or Kayakishvig people's village," in the Icy Cape area. a7 Kaiakishvigmiut, Kayakishvigmyut, Ootookok, Otokkok, Otokok, Otookok, Otukah, Utokak, Utoqaq, Utukakg.
