In September 1968, Congress authorized President Lyndon B. Johnson to proclaim National Hispanic Heritage Week, which was observed during the week that included September 15 and 16. The observance was expanded in 1988 to a month-long celebration (September 15 to October 15).
Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, America recognizes the culture and traditions of those who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
