In March 2008 the Olaeta family decided to donate this cultural legacy to the Diputación Foral de Bizkaia/Provincial Council of Bizkaia, in order to conserve and disseminate its enormous cultural wealth, accumulated during 80 years’ activity. The legacy was accepted by the Diputación/Provincial Council at a symbolic, formal and emotional ceremony held at the Foral (Provincial) Palace on 11th December of that same year, during which the director of the Filmoteca Vasca/Basque Film Library surprised everyone with a 1937 silent film which showed the Olaetas dancing as children in France. These children, now elderly, improvised music for the dances and sang out loud while they watched the old images for the first time.
