Dayeisáank'i is in reference to the large body of water now known as Taiya Inlet. Taiya is an interpretation of the Tlingit word Dayéi (translated "to pack") which refers to the packing village at the head of that inlet. Dayeisáank'i offered safe harbor to canoes traveling north and signaled that Dayéi village was, "Just right over there...towards Skagway...The opposite side of Dayéi, that's what Dayeisáank'i refers to." . It has been long used to gather fish, and to hunt mountain goats and seal. Though, because it is hard to access it has evaded permanent settlement .
Ikaduwakaa and the Storyboard are part of the Doorways to the Past; Gateway to the Future project, cooperatively supported by the Chilkoot Indian Association, Haines Borough Public Library, and a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal agency that fosters innovation, leadership, and lifelong learning.
