In the United States, Puerto Rican Heritage Month is November.
Puerto Rico commemorates the month in 1493 when Columbus landed and claimed Puerto Rico for Spain. [Why do we still celebrate this guy?]
The Puerto Rican diaspora celebrates our heritage.
We are proud to be Puerto Rican.
We are proud to be American.
With our strong families, immense creativity, and joy for life, we have a lot to give to our country.
Thanks to Comité Noviembre in New York City for promoting Puerto Rican Heritage Month.
