Understanding Basques During Jaialdi 2010

In anticipation of the large Jaialdi festival, expected to attract 30,000 Basque people to Boise, Idaho this week, reporter Anna Webb wrote an article for the Idaho Statesman published today highlighting key aspects of Basque culture.

The article discusses who the Basques are, their cultural symbols like the Ikurriña (Basque flag), the history of Dictator Franco and the Basques and why the Basques came to the United States.
