Mapping Basque Sheep Ranching and Raising in Idaho
Iker Saitua (ABD) at the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno is currently doing an internship at the Boise Basque Museum and Cultural Center. Next Thursday, November 13th, he will be presenting his research at the museum at 5:30pm in the classroom area. His talk is entitled, "Mapping Basque Sheep Ranching and Raising in Idaho." As part of Iker's work at the Museum he has been doing an inventory of sheep ranches in Idaho, and hopes to eventually map out Basque ranching there spatially, temporarily and historically since, according to Iker, this type of research is important to Basque American history. For more information on the talk visit the Museum's website.
