Lee Tiger brings expertise in the areas of American Indian relations and global
marketing to this project. He has been very effective promoting Native American
and eco-heritage tourism for more than 30 years. During this time he has marketed
both The Seminole Tribe of Florida and The Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida
encouraging Indian cultural awareness and tourism development on a global scale. In
the 1970’s Mr. Tiger established the Miccosukee Indian Village as a major Everglades
tour, and increased tribal revenues to over $1 million+ annually from tourism. From
1986 to 1991, Lee promoted Discovery Cruise Lines and five other South Florida
attractions. One of Lee’s recent accomplishments was to coordinate a Co-Op between
The Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida, The Seminole Tribe of Florida, Miami-
Dade County and Broward County called The Everglades Gateway. He is currently
continuing in his efforts to promote Native American nature- and culture-based
In, 1992, Lee established Florida Seminole Tourism on behalf of the Seminole Tribe of
Florida forging marketing partnerships with the greater Ft. Lauderdale Convention and
Visitors Bureau and the City of Hollywood. Seminole Tourism went on to become a
partner of Visit Florida, the state’s tourism organization, where Mr. Tiger served as a
member of the Board of Directors for 12 years. Mr. Tiger has collaborated with Indian
tourism efforts in worldwide capacities, including the American Indian Alaskan Native
Tourism Association (AIANTA) and 2012 with the Discover Native America promotion
in conjunction with See America at the International Tourism Exchange ITB Berlin. Mr.
Tiger has been appointed to serve on Florida’s Cultural Heritage Tourism Committee
by two Florida Governors, including Governor Jeb Bush.
Lee also is a very talented musician. In 2006 Lee and his brother Stephen were the
front men for the Tiger Tiger band (www.tigertigermusic.com). The Tiger brothers
completed their most exciting Native American cultural CD, ‘Peace From The
Everglades, Dedicated To The Survival Of The Miccosukee & Seminole People of
Florida.’ This CD received two Native American Music Award (NAMMY) nominations in
2005, for Best Pop/Rock Recording & Song/Single of the Year for ‘Heya.’
Following the loss of Brother Stephen in 2006, Lee had to revaluate how Tiger Tiger
could move on to a new era. He eventually made a decision to move Tiger Tiger
forward under his direction as song writer, producer, & musician to produce his own
CD which is called New Era and features his new 21st
CD blends sounds from his past, present & future influences such as the Beatles,
Rolling Stones, & The Kinks. Lee also includes the Mo Town; Rock & Soul Rhythms that
he picked up while playing with his late 60’s group called the Seven of Us (became
NRBQ). He has recently traveled to the Dominican Republic where he acquired an
interest in Latin rhythms and instruments which he incorporated in this latest project.
The CD opens with the power punch rock song (Red Rocks the Earth) telling the
story of survival of Native American people and the success of The Seminole Tribe’s
acquisition of the Hard Rock international franchise which truly rocks the earth!
Lee Tiger’s new CD celebrates the magic of the city of Miami along with interwoven
lyrics about life, true love, his passion for music, the pursuit of happiness & the joy of
sharing his music with all.
