Hyapatia Lee (b. November 11 1960, Indianapolis, Indiana) was an American exotic dancer and pornographic actress during the adult film industry's "Golden Age of Porn" in the 1980s.
Born as Victoria Lynch, she began her career in pornography in 1983 after changing her name to Hyapatia (pronounced high-a-PAY-sha) in honor of her Native American ancestry and continued performing until 1991, retiring due to the AIDS threat. Over the course of her career, she made more than 70 adult films.
Lee was married for a number of years to porn producer Bud Lee; they had two sons before divorcing in 1992.
In 1993 she was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame. She was also given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Free Speech Coalition in 1995.
Lee performed as the lead singer/songwriter for the rock bands W4IK (Double Euphoric) and Vision Quest (band). She is no longer writing music for these bands and is reportedly eager to break all ties with the adult film industry.
