OKLAHOMA CITY – TE ATA is an incredible film done by the Chickasaw Nation about Oklahoma born Te Ata Thompson Fisher, who was an accomplished entertainer and teller of Native American stories.
Two stars of the film, Q’orianka Kilcher and Cindy Pickett, stopped by Rise and Shine to talk about the movie.
Filmed entirely in Oklahoma TE ATA is based on the inspiring true story of Chickasaw actress Te Ata Thompson Fisher, a woman who traversed cultural barriers to become of the greatest Native American performers of all time.
