Save for a brief call for help which is the closest she ever comes to speaking, although her cry is muffled by water as she sinks, but one can still tell and it's apparent , she remains silent, as she does through the whole movie, refusing to betray Peter.

Tiger Lily is a fictional character in J. She is the princess of the " Piccaninny -tribe" Native Americans living on the island of Neverland.

Tiger Lily is nearly killed by Captain Hook when she is seen boarding the Jolly Roger with a knife in her mouth, but Peter saves her.
Tiger Lily lives in Neverland also not real. Peter Pan has always had a dizzyingly complicated history with race. Things just devolved from there. In early and mid-century films, representations of Native Americans were laden with stereotypes and also, typically called on white actors to play those characters. Recent takes on Peter Pan have appeared outwardly conscious of their past offenses, too.

Concerned Natives and culture-watchers of many ethnicities are decrying the choice as yet another redface travesty, much like Johnny Depp's Tonto in the film The Lone Ranger. The film, adapted from Scottish author J. Barrie's play and novel, has always been a source of aggravation for many Native Americans for its depiction of a "redskin" tribe, complete with "injuns" who speak in pidgin and say "how" and "ugh. Casting a white actress as an Indian princess in a story that was far from racially sensitive to begin with — this really does sound like Johnny Depp's Tonto again, doesn't it? Why won't they stop! I need a rest! While casting a white actress as an Indian character is a familiar kind of disappointing, some folks who are trying to read the tea leaves are seeing something else — a revamped Tiger Lily who isn't Native American at all.
Little did Barrie know, however, that the princess of Neverland would prove harder to pin down than Hook, the Lost Boys or even Peter Pan. A female leader in a fairy tale land or a symbol of an old and rooted racism? Barrie invented her with popular adventure stories in mind, penny dreadfuls that treated Native Americans fancifully, to say the least. Thoughts of racial insensitivity did not intrude on his Victorian sensibilities. She has all the trappings we now recognize from the worst sort of Native American stereotype. Tiger Lily puts her ear to the earth, breaks out a peace pipe, and speaks with her cohorts in guttural gibberish. He turns Tiger Lily into a hero but makes sure she is subservient to Peter; he treats her tribe as better than the true enemy pirates, adults but not nearly as important as the heroes boys, kids, not girls.
