Nevada celebrations celebrate Basque heritage

Part of Nevada’s history considering that before it became a state in 1864, Basque culture is a distinctive and vibrant existence in the Silver State.

Nevada Basques every year honor their heritage throughout two summer season celebrations. The two-day Winnemucca Basque Celebration gets underway Saturday at the convention center.

The 52nd yearly National Basque Festival is scheduled for July 3 to 5 at different places in Elko.

Throughout these 2 events, the 2 rural towns fill with individuals of Basque descent and observers drawn in by the pageantry of costumed dancers, traditional contests, ethnic music and flavorful Basque food.

The Basques descend from people who inhabited southern Europe after the last ice age, particularly in the French and Spanish borderlands of the Pyrenees Mountains.

Their language, Euskera, is ancient and unrelated to contemporary European languages. Those living near the seas were adventurous enough that Basque fisherman and whalers are believed to have visited the eastern coastlines of the Americas long prior to Columbus checked out these shores.

Basques were also amongst the Spanish explorers and missionaries who followed Columbus’ discoveries, even venturing into early Spanish California and inland into the arid Southwest.

Many Basques arrived in the American West in the mid-1800s as immigrants looking for much better fortunes than could be found in their troubled homeland. Lots of joined the flood of tourists drawn by the California Gold Rush that began in 1849.

The hardworking Basques found that there was a lot of work readily available in the West in the late 1800s. With long customs as herders, many Basques discovered work in the region’s emerging livestock markets, especially sheepherding. Basque men and children showed up to tend sheep on open variety in all the Western states, where they were chosen by stockmen.

They dealt with lonesome months rounding up sheep on mountainous varieties. When the flocks boiled down to the warmer valleys for the winter, the herders gathered in rural towns in hotels that were basically boarding homes. Hotel operators found an all set supply of hotel and kitchen employees among the Basque women and girls left behind in Europe.

Given that Basques had the tendency to marry other Basques, few of these female immigrants continued to be single for long. Many never ever returned to Europe, remaining in America to raise families fully incorporated into American life.

Even before the Western sheep industry declined, Basques started to discover other occupations, including politics, significantly in Nevada.

Today, fewer than 100 Basque herders guide their flocks to summertime stoves in the West, residing in their humpbacked wagons accompanied only by their dogs and horses. Travelers along U.S. Highway 395 in western Nevada might spot shepherds and their flocks in the foothills around Reno and Carson City. Herds of sheep are being used to keep down invasive cheat grass, which can fuel summertime stove fires.

Basque traditions carry on in America. In Nevada, their cultural importance is a focus of the University of Nevada, Reno’s Center of Basque Studies. Wherever Basques live, they are apt to gather socially. These congregations led to established Basque clubs, numerous with their own clubhouses.

Active Basque clubs in Winnemucca and Elko sponsor and support the annual Basque festivals and club events throughout the year. Some festival activities in Elko will take place at the regional clubhouse, such as a competition in sheepherder’s bread making, an ability refined by Basque herders.

Dining establishments including Basque food are popular in Nevada towns such as Carson City, Reno, Winnemucca and Elko. Several of the old Basque hotels still serve traditional fare. Basque dishes are typically presented family-style, commonly at long tables. Numerous visitors begin with a standard Picon punch. Wine goes along with everything however dessert, and fresh sheepherder’s bread, when readily available, is a must-have.
