"Septubre"- National Hispanic Heritage Month
Though the celebration of Hispanic, Latino/a/x/e* and Caribbean heritage in tandem is not confined to a month, September 15th to October 15th is nationally (in the U.S.) recognized as National Hispanic Heritage Month. This period of time is referred to as "Septubre", an acknowledgment of both the ending half of September and the beginning portion of October in which there are celebrations coordinated to honor and educate communities on the importance of the rich, vibrant, and influential culture of Hispanic, Latinx, and Caribbean nations and their people. The significance of September 15th and 16th, in regard to National Hispanic Heritage Month, is to commemorate and celebrate the independence of various Latin American countries.
