Eyak first appeared on the *1900 U.S. Census as an unincorporated village (*note may have appeared previously as Ighiak in 1890, requires more research). It next appeared on the 1920-1940 censuses and then not again until 1980 when it was made a census-designated place (CDP). After 1990 it was annexed into the city of Cordova. However, it still holds the distinction of being an Alaskan Native Village Statistical Area (ANVSA) within Cordova in the 2000 and 2010 U.S. Censuses.
