Who was 'Lasqueti', the namesake of our Island?

As a relative newcomer resident to Lasqueti Island (since 2011), I became curious about the history of the 'name' given to the island by twenty-three year old Jose Maria Narvaez, Captain of the Saturnina of the Spanish navy in 1791. There's a concrete monument to 'Lasqueti' in the Squitty Bay Park  that was installed in 1991 by memebers of the community.
