This lake was an important travel corridor for the Chilkat Tlingit as well as Southern Tutchone peoples. The water route leading from the coast to Kusawa Lake was owned by the Ganaxtedi'h, a raven moiety clan, and the Dåklåwedi'h, an eagle moiety clan from Klukwan. Kohklux, Glave, Dalton, Wells, and other notable historical figures accessed the interior via this route. The first European to lay eyes on the lake was the German Arthur Krause. Guided by one of Kohklux's sons, Krause visited the interior in 1881. 
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.
