The Basques, one of Spain’s most distinct ethnic minorities, played a remarkably influential role in the creation and maintenance of Spain’s vast colonial empire, including the Philippines. Basques were members of the Magellan expedition that discovered the Philippines in 1521, and a Basque-led expedition subsequently laid the foundation for Spain’s conquest and pacification of the archipelago. Despite the small population of their native provinces, the Basques’ unique skills as shipbuilders, navigators, businessmen, and scribes, their evangelical zeal, and their ethnic cohesion and work-oriented culture made them well suited to serve as explorers, colonial administrators, missionaries, settlers, merchants, and shippers in the trans-Pacific galleon trade between China, Manila, and Acapulco, Mexico. After the Wars of Independence deprived Spain of most of its American empire, many Basques settled in the Philippines, fleeing political persecution and increasingly limited opportunities in their homeland. Basque emigration from Spain to the Philippines continued through the first half of the twentieth century.

Basques played prominent roles in the governance, defense, and cultivation of the Philippines until the end of Spanish sovereignty in 1898, and an active role in Filipino resistance to the Japanese occupation during World War II. They were leaders in the economic development of the hinterlands, as well as the advancement of industry, transportation, inter-island trade and shipping, and the establishment of Catholicism as a dominant national religion. Filipinos of Basque descent continue to contribute in significant ways to the culture and economy of the contemporary Philippines.

This work breaks new ground with its study of the Basque diaspora in the Far East. It also addresses the long-unappreciated history of the Philippines as a vital part of the Spanish Empire, closely connected through trade and personal ties to the American colonies, and crucial to the European penetration of East Asia. Basques distinguished themselves in many areas of Filipino life, and their story, as told by Marciano de Borja, is rich in vivid characters and fascinating detail, while at the same time filling an important void in the scholarly literature about the Basque diaspora.

Comments to eBook Basques In The Philippines (The Basque Series)
Isha
it is very enlightening to read this book, being from the philippines, i just hear these name with sonorous sounds, arlegui, amunategui, ynchausti (some of my personal friends have names like these)but i didnt bother to investigate, as just knew their ancestors were from spain and considering that the philippines was colonized by spain for 300 years, to me, these names were just part of the landscape. the book is very educational and informative..good book.
Darkshaper
Excellent and well researched on the early life of the Spanish in the Philippines. Gives good background on the well known names we recognised in our everyday life. Must read for all those interested in the early history of the Philippines.
Hellblade
One of the best books I have read on Philippine history. It is written from the perspective of Basque settlers and pioneers that emigrated to the Philippines. My wife is from the Philippines and this book was helpful in understanding the Basque and Spanish colonizers and their contributions to Philippine culture and societal development. I believe my wife has some Iberian branches in her family tree, this book helps to visualize possible topics for research. Well worth the money!
happy light
Generally a boring book and only focused on well-known families that you can Google. It was more of a narration than an interesting study/research
Whitebeard
