National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates a diverse group of people. They trace their roots to Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries in North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
Of the District’s nearly 70,000 students, more than 74 percent are Hispanic. They represent a number of Spanish-speaking countries.
Several events and activities will take place throughout the City of Houston. For example, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston will be hosting Bayou Bend Family Day “Hispanic Heritage” on Sunday, Sept. 16 (click here for details). The Houston Public Library also has several events planned (click here for details). Also visit Talento Bilingüe de Houston (click) for event information.
National Hispanic Heritage Month falls during the anniversaries of independence for several Latin American countries — Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico’s independence is September 16.
Hispanic and Latino-Americans can have European, African, Asian and indigenous ancestry. The District encourages everyone to learn about the various cultures, customs, traditions and history of Hispanics.
Please contact a school for information about planned events.
