Ninilchik is a village originally settled
by the Russian's married to Aleut Women
and is the only "Creole" recognized
village in Alaska. The language is
traditionally  nineteenth century Russian.
It is located on the  eastern shore of
Cook Inlet,100 miles southeast of Anchorage.
More than likely, the word "Ninilchik"
is originally from the Denaina word
"Niqnilchint." It may be from the
word meaning, "Lodge By the River."
The people of Ninilchik originally
subsisted on hunting, fur trapping,
fishing, clam digging, gardening, cutting
trap poles,farming fox and mink, working
on the CC bridge and road for the
Government, and gold mining. There
were approximately two hundred people
before the highway existed. Some of
the original buildings are still standing.
Many descendants of those early families
still live in the area. There are two
native organizations, Ninilchik Traditional
Council and Ninilchik Native Descendants
in Ninilchik.  Most of the people belong
to CIRI and Ninilchik Native Association also.
