New mural of Khadijah Britton to be unveiled in Ukiah

Muralist Shane Grammer works on the portrait, while celebration co-host Katie Ray paints a community member's hand.

May 27, 2021 — Khadijah Britton and her family will be honored tonight at the completion ceremony for a new mural featuring her likeness, a bouquet of yellow roses, and the fresh red handprints of community members. Britton, a member of the Round Valley Indian Tribes, was abducted at gunpoint four years ago, and has not been seen since. Her story has become a rallying cry for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, a group that’s working to change the high rates of violence experienced by Native American women.

The completion ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 27, from 6-8 pm, at 810 North State Street in Ukiah. There will be traditional feather dancing, song, prayer and plenty of food.
