¡viva columbus!

Why is it that Latino Heritage month begins and ends in the middle of two seperate months? 

I understand September 15th being the day all of central america gained its independence (back when all five countries were one unified territory) but the fact that Columbus Day, that great harbinger of indigenous extinction that he was, falls within the "month" dedicated to Hispanics is rather odd...can we get a whole month...? maybe august (actually asian/pacific islander month) or september...

just anything that doesnt have Columbus Day in it...
