Big Chief is a human man living in Neverland.
The father of Tiger Lily, Big Chief is the leader of the Neverland Indian Tribe. Like the rest of his men, Big Chief delights in being as clichéd and over-the-top an "intimidating Indian Chief" as possible as part of the Tribe and the Lost Boys' neverending war-game. In private, however, he truly respects Peter Pan. Like his daughter, Big Chief doesn't speak much, actually preferring to use sign language on occasions.
Behind the Scenes
Big Chief, naturally based on the Indian Chief character in J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan play and novel, first appeared in 1953 in Peter Pan.
