They didn’t send tweets, texts, or “Friend” on Facebook--or did they? Dr. John Bieter from the Boise State Basque Studies Center will show photos and discuss his research on Basque tree carvings in Idaho.

They reveal the thoughts and desires of Basque sheepherders as they worked in the hills guiding their flocks.
