A now-abandoned village on the Tatshenshini River. Jack Dalton established his Dalton Post here. The village was "At the mouth of a small tributary of the Tatshenshini that was rich with salmon…not long ago it was a busy commercial centre whose inhabitants traded with many other people living to the north." While the region around the Tatshenshini and Alsek rivers is regarded as a great wilderness today, it was once a thriving cradle of civilization, with numerous villages and settlements.  Nesketaheen was remembered by Southern Tutchone elders as a "big city...thousands of years old." 
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.
