You've heard of Christopher Columbus, but do you know about Dia de la Raza? Commemorated in many Latin American countries, it is a celebration of Hispanic culture and heritage. Dia de la Raza (Day of the Race) is observed in conjunction with Columbus Day as a reminder of the peoples and traditions that existed before Columbus' arrival, and their continued ways of life.
