< Back to Southeast Communities

The Áak’w Kwáan people lived in what is now Juneau for hundreds of years. The Áak’w Kwáan where from the Auke Lake area. What is now downtown Juneau was the location of a summer fish camp, while winter camps where at Point Louisa near the Auke Recreational Park. The T’aaku Kwáan (Taku people) lived near the Taku river. It is said, Juneau is officially called Dzantikʼi Héeni (little flounder stream).
