Traditional Tattoo Artist Brings Community Together Through her Artwork

Kira Murillo is an indigenous tattoo artist from the Shoshone-Bannock tribe in Fort Hall, ID who is seeking to bring about community change through her art.

Chad Charlie, video director, had the following to say about Kira,

After sharing her mural she did on her reservation in Fort Hall, she had been reported for vandalism. Once word got out that she may be charged, the community got together to support her. She began hosting 5k runs to the mural where families would take their selfies to show love and support.

Kira also took that support to bring groups together to clean the sides of the roads in the community. This is an artist committed to bringing change to her community through art.”
