About Hispanic Heritage Month
In September 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed a Congressional bill designating the week including September 15th and 16th as National Hispanic Heritage Week. As more Hispanic people made important contributions to America, Congress and President Ronald Reagan later expanded the celebration to a full month (September 15th through October 15th). Throughout this time, eight of these nations will celebrate their independence. Join us in recognizing those eight in addition to each unique Hispanic country.

America honors the cultures and traditions of those who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico, and the Spanish-speaking countries of Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
