Susan Neptune, mother of Passamaquoddy Gov. William Neptune, sat during the Maine Centennial, June 28-July 5, 1920 at the "Indian Village" in Deering Oaks Park in Portland.

Wabanaki people set up structures and engaged in traditional crafts as a cultural demonstration for the public.

This image was on the front page of the June 29, 1920 edition of the Portland Evening Express, with the caption "Susan Neptune enjoying quiet smoke at Passamaquoddy Village in Deering Oaks."
