Kungkarangkalpa are the Seven Sisters, which is an extensive creation story relating to the Pleiades constellation. The story traverses Australia taking different forms, but local women are privy to the part of the story which takes place in the country near Ernabella. This part takes place near Mt. Connor also called Attila, which is a flat topped mountain between Ernabella and Uluru.
The sisters are swimming in this place called Witabulla when the man chasing them, called Nyiru, sneaks up
on them and nearly catches them. Quickly they dive under the water and swim underground. They come
up near old Mulga Park and travel on to Cave Hill. The man follows.
