- Author(s): Johnson, John R
- et al.
Femando Librado kitsepawit was among the most important native Californians to have lived during the historic era. Thanks to Fernando, and to the linguist-ethnographer, John P. Harrington, who wrote down what Fernando told him, a large corpus of Chumash linguistic data, traditional history, and lore has been preserved for future generations to enjoy and learn from.
