This movie 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 State president, European royalty and audiences across the word. Yet of all the stories she shared,none are more inspiring than her own.
Q’Orianka Kilcher, Gil Birmingham, Brigid Brannagh, Mackenzie Astin & Graham Greene. 105 minutes.
