There was once a Tlingit village situated in this bay with southern exposure. There were reportedly four houses here before epidemic either killed or displaced those living here . Joe Hotch said, “It’s the place the fish jump…when they’re jumping, we are supposed to say ‘Ey Ho!; You see a fish jump, Ey Ho, then they know they’re being appreciated so they keep jumping. And I guess our people say it so they can know which way it’s going. Just keep saying ‘Ey Ho,’ and that’s the way they want to be talked to; the fish want to be appreciated." 
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.
