Overview
Aleutian Islands, Aleut and Settlement History. Prehistory. A decline in services in the remote western islands after the sale of Alaska to the United States contributed to a dramatic drop in the population of the Aleutians. In 1870 Charles Scammon 1870] reported 220 -souls" on "Atton" Island. Two years later, 38 Attuan men, some undoubtedly with families, under former Company manager Grigorii Terent'ev immigrated to the Commander Islands. Stejneger 1896] reponed the population of the Commanders increased by 52 between 1870 and 1875. By 1880 the village on Attu had 107 inhabitants. including one white and 32 Creoles. The Northern Commercial Company closed the store on Attu in rn89. The population in 1890 was 101. Though no longer guided by the Company the economy was still dependent on sea otter and fox furs. In the first four years of American control more sea otters were killed than in the last 12 years of Russian management, 12,208. Between 1871 and 1891, 88, 135 sea otter skins reached the market. In 1895 the Attuans killed two sea otters off Attu and they were then probably locally extinct
