   'TE ATA' TRAILER AND POSTER
 BASED ON A TRUE STORY

The first trailer and poster today for the magical, period set biopic TE ATA following a Native American woman who entertained at the White House and became friends with the First Lady, performed for European kings and queens, and on stages around the world in a career that spanned more than 60 years! 
In the movie which is out in selected theatres this October, Q'orianka Kilcher plays Te Ata, (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
Graham Greene, Mackenzie Astin also star in the movie
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.

  1. I'm always somewhat leery of these movies. It seems like they can't seem to make them without relying on stereotypes, and ignoring the truth. I hope this one is different. Thanks for the heads up DEZ. I'm not even sure if it's my type of movie, but I'll check it out.

    1. Hollywood has always been based on stereotypes of all kinds, sadly

  2. I am inclined to agree with Pat. Hollywood hardly ever sticks to the facts, but has to gussy it up to appeal to a wider audience. I do think it will be worth a watch, but I think a lot of it will have to be taken with a grain of salt as far as her story goes.
