Feature Name: Nuklukayet (historical)
Category: Alaska physical, cultural and historic features
Feature Type: Cultural
Class: Locale
Description: at junction of Tanana and Yukon Rivers.
History: Former Indian trading camp and settlement located on the right bank of the Yukon River near the junction of the Tanana River, usually between the Tozitna River and mission Hill; reported by Dall (1870, p. 57) as Nuklukahyet. With the establishment of a trading station, about 1869, the area became a more permanent settlement. See Tanana. The name, Nuklukayet, and its variant spellings appear to be derived from the pronunciation (and possible spelling) of the Indian name as interpreted by Arthur Harper who named his trading post Nuklukyet. However, Archdeacon Stuck (1917, p. 140) reports that the Indians said, there was never such a name and it is more correctly given as Nu-cha-la-woy-ya (Nuchalawoia), meaning between the rivers. In the 1880 Census Petroff (1884, p. 12) listed Nuklukaiet, population 27; 120 in 1890.
