In 1968 National Hispanic Heritage Month (celebrated in Minneapolis as Latinx Heritage Month) began as Hispanic Heritage Week. In 1988 it was expanded by President Ronald Reagan to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988.
National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latinx Americans.
