The area is part of the Tahltan First Nation with their territory encompassing more than 93,000 square km. The Tahltan make up over half of the population of Iskut, Dease Lake and Telegraph Creek.
This area is known for the famous Barrage Burn, where fire destroyed 78,000 acres in 1958. Now this area is an expansive huckleberry patch, known to be the largest in British Columbia.
