Nyrulla’s main Dreaming story is ‘Seven Sister’s Milky Way Dreaming’ – this is the cluster of stars known as ‘The Seven Sisters’ or ‘Pleiades’ taught to her by her mother. It is said that as the seven sisters were travelling across the Country they discovered they were being followed by an evil Tjakamarra man – ‘Wati-Nyiru’, who sought to seduce the sisters and take them as his own.

The sisters were frightened and tried to hide, but Wati-Nyiru was a master of disguise and too clever for them. The only way to escape was through a fire to the Milky Way where they became the seven stars of the Constellation ‘Taurus’ and they now rest safely and watch over the women on earth. Wati-Nyiru (the Tjakamarra man) followed them to the heavens and became the star ‘Orion’ and was no longer able to harm them.
