Te Ata
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. She was born in 1895 in the Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma), during a time of change and hardship for Native Americans. Despite the attempts of government officials to fully assimilate Native Americans into “mainstream” society, the Chickasaw people remained committed to their traditional beliefs and practices.
Actress Cindy Pickett, (Miss Davis), will be here for Q&A after the film. You might recognize her as Mathew Broderick's mother in Ferris Bueller's Day Off or from her many TV roles.
