Story:

The Napaljarri-Warnu Jukurrpa (Seven Sisters Dreaming) depicts the story of the seven ancestral Napaljarri sisters who are found in the night sky today in the cluster of seven stars in the constellation Taurus, more commonly known as the Pleiades.
Jukurra-jukkurra, the morning star is a Jakamarra man in love with the sisters and is shown chasing the sisters across the night sky. In a final attempt to escape from the Jakamarra the Napaljarri-Warnu turned themselves in to fire and ascended to the heavens to become stars.
