Celebrate Our Diversity


Text Box:  · There are so many Independence Day celebrations in the Central American nations that the entire month from September 15 through October 15th has been designated  as Hispanic Heritage Month. 




Text Box:  
· In the United States, it culminates for many Hispanic Americans with a celebration of "El día de la raza", or "The Day of the People". 



Text Box:  · Unlike "Columbus Day", which focuses attention on the explorer who landed on the island of Hispañola in 1492, "El día de la raza" honors the rich and diverse heritage of all the people of the Americas.
