Minyipuru is an important Jukurrpa (Dreaming) story about seven sisters that are traveling through the desert, running away from Yurla, a lustful old man. the man chases the anti (women) all the way from Roebourne on the west coast, right through Marty country before flying east across Australia. Alan the way, they stop at amnestying significant sites to camp sing, dance and collect bush tucker, learn markers in the landscape along the way. The many events and interactions with Yurla chronicled through the story create a cultural rich narrative that is associated with the Pleiade star constellation.
