The original village of Kashukugniut was occupied by Russians in the early 19th century. The community was a sea otter hunting settlement, located at Humpy Cove. The name Akhiok was reported in the 1880 Census. In 1881, residents relocated to the present site at Alitak Bay. A post office was established in 1933, and remained open until 1945.
