Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo (João Rodrigues Cabrilho in Portuguese; ca. 1499 – January 3, 1543) was a Portuguese explorer noted for his exploration of the west coast of North America on behalf of Spain. Cabrillo was the first European explorer to navigate the coast of present day California in the United States. He accompanied Francisco de Orozco to subdue the rebellious Mixtec people at what would eventually become the city of Oaxaca, in Mexico[1]. Little is known of what he did there. There are currently no known portraits of Cabrillo, or common accounts of his appearence, thus historians must guess what he looked like.
