Quixoti K.-Ms.Canady-Norfork-9/18/14
In this presentation I will be covering the history and interesting facts about Hispanic Heritage Month.I will be listing a time line of these historical events.I hope you enjoy learning the importance of Hispanic Heritage Month.
A Timeline of The Important Historical Events
- It all started with the discovery of America on October 12,1492.

- The observance was expanded in 1988 to a month long celebration(Sep.15-Oct.15)
- America celebrates the culture and traditions of U.S. residents who trace their roots to spain.Mexico and the Spanish speaking nations of America.
Interesting Facts About Hispanic Heritage Month
- September 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month because it is the aniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua

- The first year that Hispanic Heritage was celebrated on a national level was 1968, when it began as a week long celebration
- Celebrations for the National Hispanic Heritage Month include film screenings, concerts, festivals with food and crafts and other goods, and muesem exhibts
- Bartolome De Las Casas(1484-1566)Although not actually born in Latin America, there can be no doubt about where his heart was. This Dominican friar fought for freedom and native rights in the early days of conquest and colonization, placing himself squarely in the way of those who would exploit and abuse the natives. If not for himself, the horrors of the conquest would have been immeasurably worse
Hispanic Leaders

There are many famous Hispanics who have made art we know today and may not even be aware that it was a Hispanic artist who made it! Here's a list of some:

Rodolfo "Rudy" Escalera (June 1, 1929-January 5, 2000) was a Mexican-American artist. Among other works, he created collectible plates for the 1984 Summer Olympics. Escalera also created a collectible plate for the 1986 World Cup hosted in Mexico. Escalera's primary medium was oils on canvas. The majority of his works are based in realism as he did not like abstract painting. I chose this artist because i thought his work was interesting.
