Moty Tiger (d. 1915) was a sergeant in the Creek Nation Army during the Great War. He served under Captain Stephen Ramsay. Ramsay reckoned Tiger the best sergeant he had. Tiger participated in much of the fighting on the Sequoyah front, including the successful liberation of Nuyaka from the United States.

Tiger was killed during the poorly planned offensive on Beggs.

Literary CommentEdit

Moty Tiger shares a name with a historical figure, a chief of the Creeks southwest of Okmulgee whose name was more commonely spelled Motey. However, given the age difference (Tiger would have been 81 years old in 1915) it does not appear that Turtledove intended the two to be related.
