Norwegian Colony in Santa Cruz Island?

Ñan Magazine published an interesting bit of history about some colorful characters who occupied Floreana Island, entitled “El Eden Se Hunde” (“Edén Sinks,” roughly). I’ll try to paste the link here.

In the article, it briefly mentions that a group of Norwegians left Floreana and settled on Santa Cruz Island. Here’s my question for those of you who might be very familiar with Santa Cruz: is there any evidence of an ongoing Norwegian community there, such as family names, place names, businesses, or foods?

Simply curious.

Thanks in advance,
