The Legend of the Seven Sisters: A Traditional Aboriginal Story from Western Australia

Author(s): May L. O'Brien

Australian Aboriginal Literature

As you look up into the sky at night, you can see many stars. The Wongutha people of the Eastern Goldfields area in Western Australia tell stories about the stars explaining how the stars came to be where they are. Some stars are grouped together and have special names. One of these groups of stars is called the Seven Sisters. The Sisters were beautiful women who used to visit the earth and wander the land. This is the story of why they appear in their position in the night sky.
