Hezkuntza: Basque Educational Resources

Following our operative motto: Celebrate + Educate = Perpetuate, the future of the Basque-American world will largely be decided by what is effectively communicated about the Basques. That is why educational resources are crucial.

Gurea Cultural Literacy Program

For Basque culture to endure we'll need to find a viable balance between the fun of being Basque (e.g., festivals) and knowing something more about what being Basque is about. That is why N.A.B.O. is following the motto Celebrate + Educate = Perpetuate.

N.A.B.O. has developed the GUREA Cultural Literacy program. Gurea is Basque for "it's ours." This program aims to develop and implement some effective methods to sustain "Basqueness:" Basque culture and identity--something that all of our Basque organizations have a shared interest in developing. It's two major components, in conjunction with the Basque Government, are the Educational Workshops and Entertainment Tours.
