Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Alexa

Beginning on September 15 and lasting a full month, Alexa celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month and recognizes the contributions of this vibrant community in the U.S. as well as the influence of their ancestors from Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Spain.

“These communities’ contribution has been not only their dedicated work and values but also their rich culture, cuisine, history, language, art, folklore, and even good humor,” Amazon said in a statement.

And to celebrate the great cultural diversity of Latinos, Alexa prepared a series of surprises that will delight you.
