The Tongass Historical Museum and Totem Heritage Center are on the ancestral lands of the Tlingit, who have been living here since time immemorial. Kichxháan (Ketchikan) was a Tlingit summer fish camp around the mouth of Kichxháan Héeni (Ketchikan Creek). Ketchikan remains the home of the Taant’a Khwáan (Sea Lion Tribe) of the Tongass Tlingit.
