The United States has a large, diverse population of Latino people, so recognizing their culture and heritage is a great way to celebrate the diverse and vibrant Hispanic community in the country. The month is observed from September 15 through October 15, and coincides with a number of Latin American independence days. In addition, you’ll find plenty of resources on the internet dedicated to the cultural heritage of Latinos. But how does it impact you?
The United States is home to some of the largest Hispanic populations in the world. In 2008, the Center for American Progress (CAP) reported that 15% of U.S. Hispanic adults had one or more non-Hispanic parent. The percentage jumps to 29% for U.S.-born individuals and 48% for those who were born in the United States. The CENSUS BUREAU, which asks people about their race, found that Latinx was the most common choice for Hispanic Americans.
A great number of Hispanic Americans are proud of their heritage and the contributions they make to the United States. From Latin American immigrants to Latin American champions, Hispanics have made important contributions to our society. The first Hispanic Heritage Week was observed on September 15, 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson and was extended by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. Today, the month of October honors the achievements of the Hispanic American community.
While September and October are historically the months when Hispanics celebrate their heritage, they also celebrate it in other ways. Many Americans celebrate the culture in many ways, including through the arts and sports. However, the celebrations of Hispanic heritage aren’t limited to just celebrating the Hispanic heritage of individuals, but also their contributions to society. For example, 55% of Latinos in the United States identify as Catholic.
In the U.S., the Hispanic population is growing at an unprecedented rate. As of July 1, 2019, there were 60.6 million Hispanic residents in the United States. This represents a quarter of the nation’s population. Those of Hispanic descent represent 18.5% of the entire population. A majority of them are younger than the average U.S. citizen. For this reason, celebrating Hispanic heritage is an important part of every American’s identity.
Hispanics of Mexican descent are not the only people with Spanish heritage in the U.S. According to the American Jewish Research Center, a third of Latinos were born outside the U.S. in their early childhood. In contrast, the remaining Latinos were born in the United States. While the majority of Hispanics in the U.S. are immigrants, their share of immigrants is decreasing. In the last survey, 33% of the U.S. population was Hispanic.
