There was no loss from the Russians in the attack. In the summer of 1992, it was seen that the skulls were crushed with a blunt (non-pointed, blunt) knob / stick object. According to the archaeologist Rick Knecht, the largest and most savage massacre in the American colonization by the Russians, the Awa'uq Massacre is the Alaska version of the Wounded Knee Massacre (Wounded Knee of Alaska). This massacre was the beginning of the end for the Supiks on the Kodiak Island, as well as providing the Russians with wildly spreading and settling on the Supik lands in Alaska. 1784-1864 In the Russian era, the people living in the southernmost of the Yupik peoples who were held by the Russians in the Russian era and the so-called Pacific Yupikler called Sugpiaq, which is also known as Alutiiq in the Russian period, is still named after Al-Qawiq, whose real names are still present in the Russian period. The list of ethnically coded codes is characterized directly by the word "Aleut". The presence of this massacre immediately after the Russians settled on the Supik lands and the presence of the Supik culture in Kodiak was severely wounded, and the remains could not recover even today. The period of Shilihov-Golikov who established the monopoly of the empire by spreading the sea fur trade from the Aleutic Islands to the southern coast of Russian America from the Aleutic Islands to the shores of the sea otters, and the period between 1784 and 1818, the period of his re-structured Russian-American Troupe. darkest period of (Sugpiaq) history. 65 years after the massacre of the Finnish natural scientist Henrik Johan Holmberg who visited Kodiak Island is the primary source of the massacre: Arsenti Aminak:

The Russians went to the settlement and carried out a terrible blood bath. Only a few [people] were able to flee to Angyahtalek in baidarkas; 300 Koniags were shot by the Russians. This happened in April. When our people revisited the place in the summer the stench of the corpses lying on the shore polluted the air so badly that none could stay there, and since then the island has been uninhabited. After this every chief had to surrender his children as hostages; I was saved only by my father's begging and many sea otter pelts
