Is there any particular reason this is a separate article from Basque people rather than part of that article? Just asking. -- Jmabel | Talk 00:03, August 14, 2005 (UTC)

Really,...not. There is no special reason to write a separate article and is partially -political- biased when says "The Basques do not have an independent country to call their own, being divided between the Spanish and French states." In the spanish side, the land of the basques is called "Basque Country", and, in fact, not all basques consider that Spain or France can't be called their own (not numbers).

I agree...this could easily be added to the Basque people page and would clean things up a bit... -Akiora 18:41, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Agreed, this should be merged to Basque people Rlevse 20:08, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

I support the merger. Many ethnic group articles have a separate section for diaspora populations. //Big Adamsky 00:45, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

This article is factually untrue. According to the most recent census the largest Basque population in the United States is in Boise, Idaho. It has 20,000 Basque residences. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) 19 Dec 2005.

This is addressed, although the source I have states the Boise Basque population is 15,000. --Faustus37 18:54, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Has this been merged?[edit]

Has this all been merged to Basque people, in which case this can turn into a redirect? Or are we still waiting for someone to do that? -- Jmabel | Talk 01:27, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't think the articles should be merged, since Basque people is quite a large article as it is. --Vizcarra 01:22, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Prominent members of the Basque diaspora[edit]

It would be very helpful if a list of prominent members of the Basque diaspora could be created. Any takers? Godzilla Awoken 21:49, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Mexico, Columbia, Uruguay, Idaho, Venezuela - reliable source[edit]

Just to note that Durango is a village in the Basque province of Vizcaya. The northern Mexico province is Nueva Vizcaya, its capital is Durango. Not a coincidence, it was founded by a Basque explorer. This is a good source for the diaspora to Mexico and elsewhere [1] - An Enduring Legacy - the story of the Basques in Idaha By John Bieter, Mark Bieter Dougweller (talk) 18:20, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Spain and France[edit]

What about a section on Basques in the rest of Spain and France? --Error (talk) 23:10, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Basque diaspora/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

Assessment note: The article still lacks much information on Basque diaspora out of the USA. Only Argntina and slightly Mexico are covered. Hence the start classification. Like all articles on Ethnic groups it has a High importance for Wikipedia:WikiProject Ethnic groups. It needs attention to overcome its disproportion and improve the information on other sectors of the Basque Diaspora. It also may need an infobox. Aditionally it may be interesting to give a historical overview of the Basque Diaspora: reasons, migrational currents, etc. --Sugaar 04:59, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

I don't understand the map. Are this really numbers of people not a percentage of the general population??? That doesn't make sense as the countries have a very different size! --Kersti Nebelsiek (talk) 10:43, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
