Mexican Independence and September 16th

Though Mexican Independence was formalized on September 27 1821, September 16th is celebrated as the awakening of the independence movement.

This Saturday is the 207th anniversary of the Grito De Dolores, or Mexican Independence Day. It’s celebrated in Mexico city with the clanging of a bell as revolutionary hero, Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla rang in 1810.

KBCS’s Yuko Kodama spoke with Seattle University Professor and daughter of migrant workers, Dr. Gabriella Gutierrez y Muhs about the significance of the holiday.
