Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month is Sept. 15-Oct. 15 and the League of Latinx Educators is celebrating and sharing out resources for educators.
This month offers an opportunity for educators to share the diverse Latinx cultures with students.
“The cultural heritage from Latin American is rich and diverse. There are 21 Spanish-speaking countries in the world, with 19 of them being located in the American continent. The colonized countries of the Americas were home to Indigenous languages before the conquest and these Indigenous cultures greatly influenced each region of Latin America. Therefore, it’s important to remember that while Spanish speaking Latin American countries share a common language, their cultural context vary greatly from region to region regarding traditions, art, music and cuisine,” the LLE’s website shares.
