CHAC, Coconino County, Celebrate 2018 Hispanic Heritage Month

FLAGSTAFF — In 1968 the United States Congress passed a resolution to celebrate Hispanic heritage at the national level and in 1988, the President of the United States formalized an annual month of Hispanic heritage recognition from September 15 to October 15 of each year.

It is an honor to celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of individuals whose ancestors came from Aztec and Mayan Indigenous peoples, Mexico, the Caribbean, Latin American, Central America and South America. Therefore, members of the Coconino Hispanic Advisory Council (CHAC), along with Human Resources, presented a proclamation to the Board of Supervisors this week celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

Employees of Coconino County took part in a number of programs to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, including workshops on:

  • Census 2020 — its impact on Hispanic / Latino individuals and related NALEO Initiatives, presented by Treasurer Sarah Benatar and Special Assistant to the County Manager Kim Musselman.
  • Professional Growth and Career Development for Hispanic / Latino Employees, featuring a discussion panel by District 2 Supervisor Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Archuleta; Treasurer Sarah Benatar and Assessor Armando Ruiz.
  • Todos Unidos: Flagstaff’s Hispanic Pioneers, featuring a presentation by Sacha Siskonen of the Pioneer Museum & Riordan Mansion.
  • Other county events include a weekly book club, “A Small Story about the Sky” by Alberto Rios; DACA Students and Services Provided to address Federal Policy Changes, presented by the Northern Arizona University’s Office of Inclusion; a presentation by Gloria Montaño Greene, Arizona State Director, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Education Fund; a presentation by the Coconino Hispanic Advisory Council (CHAC), a Salsa contest and a screening of the movie, “Coco.”
