Horace Nicholas (at left) along with other members of the Passamaquoddy and Penobscot tribes, assisted Maine Gov. Carl E. Milliken (1877-1961) out of a canoe at Deering Oaks Park in Portland. Milliken, a Republican, was governor from 1917-1921.
The Indians had a "village" set up in the park as part of the Maine Centennial celebration.
