Famed Spanish Explorer Juan Rodriguez
Cabrillo
Discovered a large Chumash Indian Village close to the sea at which he first claimed possession of Alta California lands for the King of Spain. He was greeted by the Indians who went to his ships in many swift canoes which inspired Cabrillo to name the village, "The Pueblo De Las Canoes" - The Town of the Canoes. Some historians believe the large Chumash Indian Village located here at Malibu Lagoon was indeed Cabrillo's "Pueblo De Las Canoes".
 
Erected 1987 by Malibu Historical Society and Malibu Lagoon Museum.
