Lowp tae: navigation, rake

The Basque Kintra (Basque: Euskal Herria) is a European cultural region hame tae the Basque fowk in the wastren Pyrenees that spans the border atween Fraunce an Spain on the Atlantic coast.

It comprises the Autonomous Communities o the Basque Kintra (autonomous community) an Navarre in Spain an the Northren Basque Kintra in Fraunce.

Even though they ar no necessarily synonyms, the concept o a single culturally Basque aurie spannin various regions an kintras haes been closely associatit since its vera inception tae the politics o Basque naitionalism. As such, the region is considered hame tae the Basque fowk (Basque: Euskaldunak), their leid (Basque: Euskara), culture an traditions. Nivertheless the aurie is neither linguistically nor culturally homogeneous, an the vera Basqueness o pairts o it, such as soothren Navarre, remains a vera contentious issue.
