Interior people still think of the Ishkahittaan as a coastal clan. They are linked to both the Ganaxtedi and Kookhittaan clans. Their name means "deep place/stays in one place". Swanton listed an I'cka hit (Salmon Hole House) as a house of the Taku Ganaxtedi.
A Tagish Deisheetaan told McClellan: "It's like the Ishkahittaan is our other half. It's like we point a finger at them".
Ishkittaan claim both the crow and the frog as their emblems.
