Basajaun | They were here and might return |

In Basque folklore, Basajaun (pl. basajaunak) is a huge, hairy humanoid dwelling in the woods who protects flocks of livestock and teaches skills such as agriculture and ironworking to humans.


He is known as the first farmer from whom man learned about the cultivation of cereals and as the first blacksmith and the first miller, from whom man stole the secret of making the saw, the axis of the mill and how to weld the metals.


He gives shouts in the mountains, when a storm approaches, so that the shepherds may withdraw their sheep...
