SPOTLIGHT! On Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, from September 15 to October 15, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States. The tradition began in 1968, when President Lyndon B. Johnson first issued a proclamation to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Week. Later, Congress passed a bill to extend the celebration to last an entire month. The bill was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1988, and National Hispanic Heritage Month has been celebrated every year since 1989.

The theme for 2022 is Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation, which recognizes the diversity within the Hispanic community and encourages all voices to be recognized. Teachers, students, and families can explore these resources to further expand their understanding of this rich and vibrant history.

  • Choose from National Education Association’s (NEA) resources, assembled by grade level, for use in Hispanic Heritage Month lessons and celebrations.

  • Tap the Smithsonian Learning Lab’s Hispanic Heritage Month learning resource ¡Pleibol! on the history of Latinos in baseball.
