Hi,

Bienvenidos

Learn about Hispanic Heritage Month

 

It started as a week long celebration under President L B Johnson, but it was under President Reagan that National Hispanic Heritage was extended to a month.
It kicks off on September 15 because this is Independence day for most all Central American countries. Tomorrow is Mexican Independence day, el 16 de septiembre.
National Hispanic Heritage Month goes for 31 days and covers Columbus Day – el Día de la Raza (race, ie…ethnicity) el 12 de octubre.

 

Look for celebrations in your area, notice news reports, highlights of famous Hispanics, history events and foods from around the Latin world.

 

You may enjoy the documentary ´Project ñ’, listening to some Latin tunes, or trying various restaurants in your area. Look for Cuban, Mexican, Peruvian, Argentinean, etc…

 

 

Vocabulario

Independencia
Herencia – Heritage
La Raza – the race
el orgullo – pride

 

Aquí puedes ver la página web de Univisión. Contiene mucha información, en español, sobre personas, la historia, etc…

 Un poco de Cumbia

 

Disfruta del mes.  – Enjoy the month

 

Gracias y hasta mañana,
Carolina
