Basque Exhibit at Malheur County Library The Malheur County Library, Ontario, will host a traveling exhibit, "Amerikanauk! Basques in the High Desert," until March 2. The exhibit was producdd by the High Desert Museum, south of Bend. The exhibit tells the story of Basque immigrants to the West. The Basque country, Euskadi, is located along the Bay of Biscay and high in the Pyrenees Mountains. There are seven provinces; four have been under Spanish rule and three under French rule. The Basques first arrived in the American West in the Nineteenth Century, during the California gold rush. Many Basques turned to other work such as raising livestock, particularly sheep raising, a de- manding !ob at which they excelled.
