Mendenhall Lake was created by the retreat of the glacier known as Aak'wtaaksit "the Glacier Behind the Little Lake" by the Tlingit Indians. Naturalist John Muir renamed the glacier Auke Glacier for the Tlingit Aak'w Kwaan tribe in 1879. In 1891 it was renamed in honor of U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey Superintendent Thomas Mendenhall, who was responsible for defining the exact national boundary between Alaska and Canada.
