Boise, ID, USA. One of the major tasks of the Basque Museum and Cultural Center in Boise is to take care of visitors that come to its installations, and show them the history, past and present of the Basques in Boise, adults as well as children. In regards to the latter, the Museum receives regular school visits and explains the Basque Country, the Basque culture and its presence and significance in Boise to students and teachers alike, providing general information of all of this through its annual program of guided tours.
Currently, since receiving groups in person poses a problem, the Museum has prepared a video by Kylie Bermensolo, the Museum’s Education Programs Specialist with an introduction to the Basques, the geographic location of the Basque Country, its culture, History and language. It also includes a short virtual visit of the Cyrus Jacobs Uberuaga home, a building that is part of the Museum, an old Basque inn that welcomed Basque immigrants and is the oldest residential brick house in the entire city.
Here we provide you the video so that you may use it in your club, or use it in your class to explain what the Basque migration to Boise and the US Western States is. On egin! (Enjoy!).
