Hyapatia Lee (pronounced "high-a-PAY-sha") was born Vicki Lynch. By 1977 she was performing regularly on stage as an actress at the Black Curtain Dinner Theater, Footlite Musicals, and Indianapolis Civic Theater, among others. In 1979 she became a regularly featured dancer at the Red Garter Lounge. On a whim, she entered and won the Miss Nude Galaxy contest in nearby Roselawn, Indiana. This led to her cover and centerfold modeling. When she won the Miss Nude Galaxy contest a second time in 1981 she decided to accept one of the many offers she had been given to appear in an adult movie. She wrote the script for her first movie in which she also starred. She learned to direct, produce movies, and even contribute to the musical score. She was one of the most popular stars in the history of adult films, choosing to appear in only a few quality, high-budget productions. For example, The Ribald Tales of Canterbury was a half a million dollar production. In 1993 she was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame, was given the "Lifetime Achievement Award" from the Free Speech Coalition in 1995, and received a few other awards from the adult film industry (Actress of The Year for her role in The Masseuse, etc.) For several years Hyapatia wrote music, released two albums and performed with her band Double Euphoric. In 2005 she was named Blessed Woman for the Lost River Band of the Cherokees in Mitchell, Indiana where she performed traditional ceremonies, taught the people to speak Cherokee and sing traditional songs. She also shared the knowledge she had learned from various medicine men and women. In 2016 she began sharing this information with the rest of the world with her Native Strength books. In 2017 she began production on the Native Strength documentary series on the ancient wisdom given to Native Americans by the Star People.
