In the books, throughout their history, they've either lived on the Isle of Berk or the Island of Tomorrow. Their current Chief in the books is Stoick the Vast, and his son Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is the current King of the Wilderwest.
In the franchise they've always lived on the Isle of Berk after arriving there 300 years prior to the events of the first film. In the second film, after the death of Stoick the Vast, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III became the new Hooligan Chief.
The Hairy Hooligans are constantly fighting with the dragons of the area that provide for the Red Death. The dragons steal the food of the Hooligans in order to appease the Red Death. Following the demise of it, the Hairy Hooligans establish a mutual agreement with the dragons, living in harmony and riding on them.
After they made peace, the Hooligans had trouble keeping the dragons under control. However, Hiccup and his riders started the Berk Dragon Training Academy to help the Hooligans live with dragons.
The Hairy Hooligans now enjoy the dragon races. However, they then prepared themselves for war with Drago Bludvist's Army. It was during a battle at Valka's Mountain that Stoick was killed when he saved his son from his hypnotized night fury. The Hooligans' village was then decimated by Drago's Bewilderbeast. However, they were then saved when Hiccup and Toothless challenged Drago and his Bewilderbeast. Toothless thus became the new Alpha dragon and Hiccup was then named chief of the tribe. The Hooligans are now rebuilding their village and are still enjoying the dragon races.

- In Imperfect Harmony, Hiccup says they do not have a tribal crest. However, in Defiant One, he said that the symbol on his satchel was Berk's crest. In Breakneck Bog, Johann was transporting a chest for Hiccup, and identified it by the Hooligan crest on the front.
- The crest is also on the Dragon Manual.
- It is possible that the crest is that of the Isle of Berk instead of the Hooligan Tribe's.
