Minyipuru Jukurrpa: The Seven Sisters' story
When I was a child, we camped one night at Natawalu. The Seven Sisters also rested there.

Marapinti is a rock hole west of Kiwirrkurra, and the easternmost point on the Seven Sisters' journey across Martu Country. As they travelled, singing and dancing towards Pintupi Country, the Minyipuru created waters and landforms. On reaching Marapinti, they pierced their noses, a practice known as marapinti. Today the Minyipuru can be seen there as a group of rocks, sitting up like women.
