According to Chilkat Elder Joe Hotch, it was the Chilkats who pushed the Canadians to establish their border station near 42-mile in 1902. The Canadian army tried to establish the border at the Chilkat River near Klukwan, but the chief of Klukwan resisted their presence, sending them farther up the valley to 42-mile, where they established Pleasant Camp . The former U.S. Customs building - later a roadhouse and a restaurant - is still standing, although in considerable disrepair. Built by Jack Dalton as his original "Dalton Trail Post," it is a designated Historic Site. The new U.S. Customs station is nearby. 
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.
