Our country shares a rich cultural heritage, and the next few weeks will be a time of celebration and remembrance.

National Hispanic Heritage Month began Sept. 15, and will continue through Oct. 15, commemorating the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile, and Belize also observe their independence during this time.

This observance began in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson as Hispanic Heritage Week. President Ronald Reagan expanded the weeklong celebration to a month; National Hispanic Heritage Month was enacted into law on Aug. 17, 1988.

This time is important for many Americans, with 16 percent of the nation’s population being of Hispanic or Latino origin, according to the 2010 Census.
