Naala Djookan

The story behind Naala Djookan

Naala Djookan ("Our Sisters") comes from the Nyoongar Dreaming Story of the Seven Sisters. Four of the sisters from the Nyoongar Dreaming Story form the Southern Cross which is reflected in the four points of the butterfly. The butterfly represents the continuation of life's journey after trauma and the guidance provided by Naala Djookan Healing Centre. 

With all of its fragile beauty, the butterfly also represents courage. It takes great courage to carry out the changes necessary in the process of personal and spiritual growth. Moving from darkness into the light requires faith, commitment and bravery, but it brings freedom by giving the gift of wings to fly.
