Yesterday, December 3, Basques around the world celebrated International Basque Language Day. In Boise, about 25 of us gathered at Leku-Ona downtown for pintxos and a couple hours of singing in Basque (check out the photos below).
To celebrate Basque Language Day, Etxepare Basque Institute organized a photo contest on Facebook for the students and teachers from the 38 culture lectureships they have spread among 15 countries. The top five photos will be chosen by popular vote on the Institute’s Facebook page, and then be judged by a jury at Etxepare to choose the winner.
The winners’ names will be published online. the 10th of December. The prize for the winner student will be an intensive Basque course in the Basque Country during the summer, and there will be another prize for their Basque and Culture University reader too.
