The Protection of the Theotokos Chapel is a historic Russian Orthodox chapel on Kodiak Island, Alaska, at Akhiok, Alaska, that was built early in the 20th century, exact date not known but soon after 1900. It is not the first church on the site. It has a unique design, one that is simple, but with "details reminiscent of the more ambitious churches built ten to twenty years earlier at Belkofsky and Karluk". It has an approximately 30-by-20-foot (9.1 m × 6.1 m) nave and a 16-by-14-foot (4.9 m × 4.3 m) altar chamber.[2][3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The Ascension of Our Lord Chapel at Karluk and the Holy Resurrection Church at Belkofski were also listed on the National Register on the same date.[1]
