Basque roots run deep in the Treasure Valley
The Basque legacy began in the 19th century here in Idaho. Today, there are more than 30,000 Basque Americans living in southern Idaho, making Boise one of the most concentrated and active Basque communities in the nation. Gemma Gaudette’s interview with Dave Lachiondo, the former Basque studies director at BSU, harkens to the rich traditions and active Basque community in Boise.
