Morro Bay Landing

Morro Bay Landing

On 18 October 1587, the first Filipinos landed in what is now the Continental United States at Morro Bay in Upper California.[1] They arrived aboard the Nuestra Señora de Buena Esperanza, which had sailed from Portuguese Macao, as part of the Manila galleon trade.[2] During about three days of travels ashore around Morro Bay, the crew of the Nuestra Señora de Buena Esperanza came in contact with the Chumash people, ultimately resulting in the deaths of two crew members: one Spaniard and one Filipino.[3]
