Yes.  In 1510 California was described thus:

With minor adjustments - for instance we have men these days - that
certainly defines California.

BTW, I find the "unique cultural and/or linquistic identity" to be a
rather contrived, and arguably self-serving, formula.  There is probably
at least as much social gluten among those who play World of Warcraft -
a group that definitely has their own language and culture - as there is
among the residents of the area once called Aquitaine.
