KNKX Honors National Hispanic Heritage Month - Regional Events September 15-October 15

National Hispanic Heritage Month is organized by The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. The celebration is Sept. 15 through Oct. 15.

Also referred to as Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month, the celebration highlights the history and cultures of Hispanic or Latinx people who came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

The Pacific Northwest benefits from a rich history of Hispanic and Latinx peoples making their mark on the region's cultural fabric and boasts many communities with strong Latinx roots. South Park and nearby White Center have long served as home to many Latinx families and businesses. SeaTac and Burien are also emerging as centers of Latinx culture in Seattle.
