Yamoria the Lawmaker is a collection of stories that showcase Dene worldviews and moral teachings. The collection is presented by Elder Blondin and includes many stories from his own family experience and teachings; however, some stories are from Slavey, Mountain, or Hare peoples. Most stories are short and could be used independently in social studies lessons as examples of Indigenous perspectives. The vocabulary level would likely allow even earlier readers to enjoy some of the content, even if they are still developing reading stamina. Despite deep moral themes, many of the stories include action, which could appeal specifically to struggling readers.
