Abstract

In diaspora communities,maintaining the language of a homeland can be tied to expectations of ethnic authenticity and legitimacy.Though speaking Basque is lauded by fellow immigrants and latter generations,Basque diaspora identity is more tied to ancestry than any other factor.Fieldwork questionnaires demonstrate that "Being Basque " does not depend on being able to speak Basque..Basque Government programs and funding have greatly affected the availability of Basque language maintenance possibilities.
