Hispanic Heritage Month 2006 September 15-October 15
In 1968, Congress authorized President Lyndon B. Johnson to proclaim a week in September as National Hispanic
Heritage Week. The observance was expanded in 1988 to a monthlong celebration (Sept. 15-Oct. 15). During this month, America
celebrates the culture and traditions of U.S. residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations
of Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Sept. 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because
it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.
In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.
