"Suk" is an alternate form of Sugpiaq, which is the name the Alutiiq people of Alaska call themselves.
Sugpiaq means "true people"; Suk by itself just means "person."
Here are links to our webpages about the Suk tribe and language:
Here are a few good books about the Suks:
Making History: Sugpiaq Life on the Alaska Peninsula
Looking Both Ways: Heritage & Identity of the Alutiiq People
