Kokhanok, a fishing village, was first listed in the 1890 U.S. Census by A.B. Schanz. The community was relocated to higher ground a few years ago when the rising level of Iliamna Lake threatened several community buildings. A federally-recognized tribe is located in the community – the Kokhanok Village. The population of the community consists of 90.8% Alaska Native or part Native. The village has a mixed Native population, primarily Yup’ik Eskimo and Dena’ina. Subsistence activities are the focal point of the culture and lifestyle.
