Sample text

This led to fights and harassment of Basque sheepherders by cattle ranchers. Sheepherders were shot at or dragged behind horses, their sheep were killed, and their camps were burned. They gained a bad reputation, exacerbated by biased newspaper reports of the day, for ignoring rules and feigning ignorance. The Basques were criticized for being foreigners who saved their money and then left the country. It didn’t help that the earliest arrivals spoke no English, and they spent months to years in the mountains where they could not practice or learn the language.

Shipwrecks and other recent archeological finds indicate that Basques were present in the area in significant numbers from about 1540 to 1610. Basques themselves like to promote the unproved theory that it was a Basque who told Christopher Columbus about the existence of the New World. 11 B A S Q U E H I S T O R Y, C U LT U R E , & T R A D I T I O N S The New World In Colonizadores de la Epopeya Americana, published in 1966 in Argentina, the author Xamurre presents the findings of several historians who reported that Columbus learned of the New World from a Bizkaian navigator who was shipwrecked at the Portuguese island of Madeira, where Columbus was living at the time.

That situation eventually turned around. Many of the old-time boardinghouse owners turned their dining rooms into restaurants. A majority of the clientele who patronize today’s Basque restaurants is American. Nevertheless, Basque restaurants, where Basques are likely to see a familiar face or two, have played an integral part in maintaining the culture. Even those who have grown out of touch with the Basque community enjoy taking their families out for a Basque dinner where a flicker of nostalgia over past family outings is likely to grab hold of them and remind them of their roots.
