Datuk Dr. Tiki Lafe (born 11 May 1953) was the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Mas Gading constituency in Sarawak from 1999 to 2013, representing the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) in the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition.[1]

Tiki was a Deputy Minister for Rural and Regional Development in the Barisan Nasional government (appointed in 2004[2]), but was left out of the ministry after the 2008 election.[3] His loss of the ministry triggered unhappiness among the Bidayuh community in Sarawak that there were no longer any Bidayuh appointed to the ministry.[4] He was dropped as a Barisan Nasional candidate for the 2013 election. He recontested the seat as an independent, but was defeated by the Barisan Nasional candidate Anthony Nogeh Gumbek.[5][6]
