Euskaraldia group in San Francisco
“Euskaraldia” (In favor of Basque) is a new initiative from the Etxepare Basque Institute that first encourages people in the Basque Country to use Basque more often, not beginning conversations in Spanish for example only to find that the other person is a Basque speaker; and secondly, for Basques in the Diaspora to show support for the Basque language. As such, they have sent an explanation as well as letters that can be printed out easily. The hope is that Basques around the world will gather for an event, speak Basque, and then take a photo of the group with the letters. “Euskaraldia” is set for November 23-December 3rd ending on the International Day of Euskera. If your group would like to participate, we have provided everything that you need here. Please send your group pictures to Aitor Inarra, NABO Euskera Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please find a summary, written by Aitor Inarra, of an event that took place in San Francisco last weekend here.

In honor of Halloween, we have heard from more than one club about the movie Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil by Paul Urkijo Alijo that is now available on Netflix in English. This movie “is a fantasy film, set in the 19th-century Basque Country and offers a retelling of an ancient fable about the blacksmith who finds himself in a vicious battle with the devil.” To watch a trailer, or for more information on the film, click here.
