Quinhagak is on the Kanektok River less than a mile from the Bering Sea coast. Quinhagak is a long-established village whose origin has been dated to 1,000 A.D. It is the first village on the lower Kuskokwim River to have sustained contact with whites.

Today, the community is primarily Yup'ik Eskimos who fish commercially, trap, and practice subsistence food gathering.
