HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH


During National Hispanic Heritage Month we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.

Hispanic Heritage Month started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, by President Ronald Reagan to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. 

It marks the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Columbus Day (Día de la Raza) is October 12. 

Share in this special annual tribute by learning and celebrating the generations of Hispanic and Latino Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.
