The historical Taku territory has included Taku River, Taku Inlet, Taku Harbor, Limestone Inlet, Port Snettisham, Admiralty, and Douglas. The territory was continuously used, as seasonal hunting and fishing camps moved around based on the availability of fish and game. After gold was discovered in the Juneau area, both the Taku and Auk Tribes moved closer to the Juneau settlement to further their tribal economies with trade and labor opportunities. The Taku village moved to the vicinity of Bishop Point, and then to Douglas.
Like many Tlingit and Haida Tribes in Southeast Alaska, the DIA only has possessory rights for a small fraction of their historic territory. Many of the Taku settlements were temporary or seasonal, and there is little evidence of lands with permanent and exclusive use that is needed for possessory rights. The DIA has possessory rights for a small inlet north of Taku Harbor, where a hooligan camp is situated, an area near Limestone Inlet, and a few cabins.
