The account of the revelation of Chingichngish was written about 1812 by the Spanish priest Geronimo Boscana, serving in Southern California. It is the oldest detailed account of the ancient Indian culture and knowledge of that geographic area.

Chingichngish is pronounced with the accent on the second syllable, and the "ng" sound is a Luiseno Indian sound that does not occur in English. It is nasalized, like the Oriental "ng" sound.
