Tiger Lily is a fictional character in J. M. Barrie's play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, his novel based on it, and the various adaptations of them.
She is the princess of the Piccaninny tribe of "Indians" (Native Americans) living on the island of Neverland. She is apparently old enough to be married, but she refuses any suitors because she desires Peter Pan over all. She is jealous of Wendy and Tinker Bell. Tiger Lily is nearly killed by Captain Hook when she is seen boarding the Jolly Roger with a knife in her mouth, but Peter saves her. In the earlier versions of Peter Pan, it is assumed that she disapproves of Wendy and even Tinker Bell at one point because of her envy.
In the Disney animated film of the same name, Captain Hook kidnaps Tiger Lily (voiced by Corinne Orr) which led her father Big Chief to suspect that the Lost Boys were responsible. At Skull Rock, Captain Hook asks her where Peter lives. She refuses to tell her. Hook leaves her drowning at Skull Rock, but she is saved by Peter, who brings her back to her tribe. While the Indians celebrate, Wendy becomes upset with Tiger Lily for falling in love with Peter.
