A band of lively girls dancing across the land

They are a playful group of magical young ladies who went on a spontaneous dancing tour of Central Australia.

They were accompanied by their MURA-MURA, who as ancestral spirits go, happened to be rather goofy. In the presence of females he just blushed and giggled, and was not much use at all. Especially when they joined forces with another bunch of girls on a similar tour. They all stormed ahead while their wimpy chaperone got lost.

Along the way the girls had many adventures. They invented nose-piercing, traveled underground via homemade metro, befriended a wild dog, and named virtually every rock in Australia. They also stopped over at several villages and taught the native girls how to sing and dance — and also gave them lessons in the noble art of jiggling naked breasts.

After a wonderful dancing road trip through the countryside, the MANKARA-WAKA-YA-PIRNA girls bumped into the WAPIYA girls. Uh-oh. Rivals. Cue some rude but good-natured banter as they sized each other up. It was like two feisty girl bands meeting in the wilderness. But it turned out they were all cool with each other, so they continued their adventures together with even more crazy stuff and laughter.

All good things must end, and one day it was time for them to mysteriously vanish up a piece of holy string dangling from the sky and become (possibly) the Pleiades. Vacation over. But perhaps they'll do it all again next year.
