Kakwa has created an Aboriginal education package that is used as a hands-on teaching aid for school curriculums, covering the history of pre-contact Canada and the North America fur trade.
These items are replicas (with the exception of the genuine antique trade beads) of everyday objects used in various regions. The entire package functions as a miniature museum, which can be expanded as new products are developed.
