    The census records are hit and miss with the Yupik and the Parish records are in Russian so the process-of-elimination method using the genealogy records is problematic.

    As of now, I think I’ll go with Petla’s boarder in the 1930 Census as my working candidate- Kemafe Onguksak. He does tick a few boxes. Who’s to say Klutuk wasn’t boarding with someone in February of 1930, after he supposedly disappeared in ‘29, and got captured in a census?

      In a preliminary analysis, Klutuk might profile the same as “Albert Johnson”. By this, I mean he could be considered an outsider even if he’s from Nushugak River by virtue of being an outcast from society after killing two natives, ostensibly from his own tribe.

        Klutuk's height is given as 5'4" and Petla Kokchung (the guy on the right) is 5'4" at 55/57. Ishnook in the middle is the tallest one.
        Here's Petla's son Wassili (from the picture) in the Draft Cards with a patronomic last name. He enlisted in January 1941 in Ekwok Alaska but gives his work as the Pacific Fisheries in S. Bellingham, Wash., as does his brother Blunka/Blooka born in 1919 so likely after the picture was taken.

          I’m interested in the 1930 boarder of the man Petla who is in the c. 1917 photo allegedly posing with Klutuk. I searched using the unusual name Kemafe.

            A couple of things make the boarder Kemafe a possible candidate for Klutuk who was allegedly photographed with the head of household Petla:

            One is he’s a widow in 1930 and two he has a son who’s 10. Klutuk was reportedly a widower in 1919. So I’m looking for a possible wife who died in 1919 or so.

            The possibility is the wife was one of Petla’s daughters because the groom usually goes to live with the father-in-law although the relationship is listed as head and boarder. He’s also the only boarder in the area I could find.

                In 1930, he gives the name Kemafe Onguksak. Obviously he wouldn't give the census taker his real name if he was "Klutuk". He'd have used an alias.

                Here's an Ivan Onagukh with a son Gomuphie. Ivan Onagukh is the right age and the right area.

                The village (Turiakh?) is or was in the right area near Ekwok way up the Nushagak R. based on the order the census was taken (after Ekqwok).
