Eyak Territory: South
central coastal Alaska.
A - D E N E PACIFIC
For a long time, ethnographers
and map makers misclassifed the Eyak as a Yupik group and they
were named "Ugaiahmute" or "Ugalakmut".
During the Russian
era, the Tlingit were attacking north and conquering Eyak Territory....thence,
Yakatag Clan territory. However, this early 1802 clearly
shows Eyak Territory extending southward, all the way to Yakutat
The current Eyak Tribe
may more be accurately described as polyglot group including
the Eyak, Tlingit, Ahtna, and a great many Unangax.
