History

A few speakers of the Ninilchik Russian dialect are still alive in 2008, including one married couple who continues to speak the language to each other. In 1901, the Russian Orthodox Church was redesigned and constructed at its current site. The first people who would permanently stay in the village moved there from Kodiak Island in 1847 before the Alaska Purchase. The name Ninilchik probably derives from Niqnilchint, a Deni'ana Athabaskan word meaning ”lodge is built place”. They were Russian Grigorii Kvasnikov (Anglicized to Kvasnikoff), his Russian-Alutiiq wife Mavra Rastorguev (daughter of Agrafena of Afognak), and their children.
