J.M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, named the Indian tribe in Neverland, the Piccaninny tribe. They were represented in a sterotypical way and referred to as "redskins". Tiger Lily was the princess of the Piccaninny tribe and a friend to Peter Pan after he rescued her when the pirates left her on the rocks to die. The Indian tribe in this tale is represented as bloodthirsty and they had scalps of boys as well as pirates around their necks, while their bodies gleamed with war paint. They are not to be confused with the Delawares or the Hurons, as stated in the story, who were softer-hearted.
