History of Hispanic Heritage Month


Each year September 15th through October 15th marks National Hispanic Heritage Month. During this celebratory month, we honor the stories, cultures, and contributions of those of Central and South American, Mexican, Spanish, and Caribbean ancestry. President Lyndon B. Johnson first introduced the observation of Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968, and it was later expanded to a month long celebration in 1988 under President Ronald Reagan.
