The statement that " They [meaning either the Cedros Islanders or the Cochimí in general] fiercely resisted the Spanish and were never conquered by Europeans, succumbing instead to the introduced diseases brought by the invaders" is not factually accurate. Native resistance to the Spanish in central Baja California was sporadic at most and essentially nonexistent on Cedros. The Cochimí were conquered, and the remaining Cedros Islanders were brought into the mission system. Rhyme3 (talk) 12:34, 8 May 2010 (UTC)


The claim that pirates attacking the Manila galeons were specifically based at Cedros is unsupported by any specifics or supporting evidence, and it's probably untrue. Rhyme3 (talk) 12:39, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Note that the dates relating to Puerto Cedros are inconsistent. Rhyme3 (talk) 12:42, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
