Following our operative motto:
+ 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.
For a culture to survive it must be transmitted from generation
to generation. If effective means of doing this are not found,
then a culture dissipates and soon disappears.
NABO's GUREA ("It's Ours") Basque
Cultural Literacy Project is aimed at developing and
implementing some effective methods to sustain "Basqueness:"
Basque culture and identity.
||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
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
