The Debate Behind the Creation of a United Euskera
Euskera is the most distinguishing ethnic characteristic of the Basque people and is the bond that glues Basques together. Euskera is largely different from the Romance languages spoken by the European people who surround the Basque Country. To this day, its origins are a mystery.
Efforts to promote the Basque language and keep it alive have been made in Basque communities in the United States.
North American Basque Organizations, or NABO, which represents Basque clubs in the U.S., has worked with the Basque government to support the language and offer classes. Click on the following link to access the NABO Basque languageweb page.
