Example text

The strongest influence on Basque immigration patterns to the United States was the typical practice of sending for other family members and neighbors. It is not surprising then that Basques in the United States were typically concentrated in areas according to their villages or regions. Among the Basques who settled in California in the mid-1800s most were Nafarrak from the inland farming communities on both sides of the Pyrenees. (At one time the region of Nafarroa extended into what is now France, but the political border split it into two provinces, Nafarroa and Nafarroa Beherea [Lower Nafarroa].

In the earliest days, the boardinghouses were dependent on Basques and their sheepherder wages, yet that was sufficient. That situation eventually turned around. Many of the old-time boardinghouse owners turned their dining rooms into restaurants. A majority of the clientele who patronize today’s Basque restaurants is American. Nevertheless, Basque restaurants, where Basques are likely to see a familiar face or two, have played an integral part in maintaining the culture. Even those who have grown out of touch with the Basque community enjoy taking their families out for a Basque dinner where a flicker of nostalgia over past family outings is likely to grab hold of them and remind them of their roots.
