    The ethnically and linguistically distinct people of northwest Spain and southwest France and their lands
    Population: approximately 4 and one half million
    Have immigrated in large numbers all over the world but especially to Latin America
    Have existed as a distinct people in the same general area for at least 4,000 years
    Famous Basques include; Francis Xavier, Ignatius Loyola and Juan Sebastian Elcano
    Very little is known about their origins or the origins of their distinctly non-Indo European language. Even the meaning/origin of their name, Basque is a matter of conjecture.
    The Basque area in France has no political autonomy.
    Roman Catholic for much of Christian history, as much as 50 percent of its population now considers itself agnostic or atheist.
    A lot of the men wear berets.
    A tiny portion of the population over the years has engaged in terrorism, seeking total independence for the Basque people and their land.
    Having existed as one people with their own language for 4,000 years makes them by far the oldest cultural group/civilization in Europe.
    They have traditionally granted much freedom to women.
    They largely founded Chile.
    Expatriates have done very well overseas and are particularly well known in the ranching (sheep, goats and cattle) and fishing industries.
    They have a really cool flag that resembles the English 'Union Jack.'
