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.
Te Ata taught at the Oklahoma college for Women, now the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. See more »

Incredibly well shot, edited, sound production everything. My family enjoyed being a part of this film, and the two year wait was well worth. Amazing movie that displayed the Indian Nation and honered it's great Oklahoma heritage. Te ATA also included some well timed humor and pulled at the heart strings as well.
