What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Te Ata is an inspirational drama set in the early 1900s about a Native American woman who spread cultural awareness through her long performance career. Her life is a study in steadfast courage, perseverance, and pride in her Chickasaw heritage and offers many positive messages for viewers. There's no smoking, drugs, drinking, sex, or swearing, although some scenes include mild racial insults -- such as when a group of U.S. government officials refers to "pagan" and "witch doctor" Native rituals and insists that Native people need to "assimilate." A brief violent image shows a murdered man lying on the ground, with a spreading pool of blood around him. A couple kisses, and a woman is asked to wear a skimpy costume for a stage performance (she refuses). Young viewers may well have questions about the historical treatment of Native people in America after watching.
