Te Ata – 2016 – Rated PG

  • See schedule below for show times

  • 💲Te Ata screenings will be free as part of the Chickasaw Nation Annual Meeting & Festival activities

Te Ata 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 culture, 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.
