Storytellers Day - Te Ata Fisher
Today we’re grabbing our blankets and listening ears for Storyteller’s Day! Here at the Museum, we love stories and it’s our mission to share as many Oklahoma stories as we can. Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Te Ata Fisher. Her hometown is Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Fisher was born in 1895 when Oklahoma was still Indian Territory. Fisher started telling traditional Chickasaw stories as a way to support herself while acting in New York, but she soon became known for her storytelling. She performed throughout the country and abroad until the 1970s. You can learn more by reading Te Ata Fisher’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.
