Storyline

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 a United States president, European royalty and audiences across the world. Yet of all the stories she shared, none are more inspiring than her own.

Quotes

Taxi Driver: So you're going to college, are you? Don't believe I've ever seen an Indian up at the school before. You are Indian, aren't you? Didn't have those kind of opportunities when I was your age. One quarter Choctaw, just enough to make it tough in a white man's world. Young lady, you make the most of this. You're doing it for all of us.
