Te Ata (TAY’ AH-TAH) is based on the inspiring, true story of Mary Thompson Fisher, a woman who traversed cultural barriers to become one of the greatest Native American performers of all time. Born in Indian Territory, and raised on the songs and stories of her Chickasaw tribe, Te Ata’s journey to find her true calling led her through isolation, discovery, love and a stage career that culminated in performances for presidents and royalty. Yet of all the stories she shared with audiences, none are more inspiring than her own.
Te Ata is proudly produced by the Chickasaw Nation, and stars Q’orianka Kilcher, Graham Greene and Gil Birmingham.
No word on when it’ll be released in theaters, but Te Ata will be shown at the 2nd annual Bentonville Film Festival May 3-8, 2016.
