This is a name that is in reference to the Chilkoot village that sits below. The word Lkoot roughly translates to "cache of abundant fish." There is a big sockeye salmon run here, and various Lkoot settlements have sat on the edges of the lake over the millennia. A carbon-dated bridge or weir board found near the mouth of the river suggests that people were living in this region 2,000 years ago, making this a significant historical site. 
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.
