1. PEOPLE. Basques are the “mystery people” of Europe (western Pyrenees region of France and Spain) because of their unknown origin; in Idaho since the 1890s.
2. LANGUAGE. Basque or Euskara is their unique language and the basis of their name for themselves: “Euskaldunak” or “those who speak Basque;” not known to be related to any other language and likely the oldest living language of Europe.
3. PROGRAM. Basque Studies at Boise State University. A multi-disciplinary program of advanced study of the Basque people specifically—while exploring the human condition generally—that involves varied aspects of language, history, politics, economics, etc., all the while seeking to forge learning links to empower students (Basque & non-Basque alike) to generate a satisfying, self-directed pursuit of life-long learning.
