Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has proclaimed September 2023 as Macedonian American Heritage Month. According to Whitmer, it is important to highlight the contributions and cultural impact of Macedonian Americans in the United States.

“September holds significance for Macedonian Americans as it marks the anniversary of the Independence Day of the Republic of Macedonia, symbolizing the country’s journey towards sovereignty and its enduring ties to the Macedonian American community,” reads the Governor’s statement.

Americans of Macedonian descent, it adds, have contributed to the fabric of American culture through their involvement in business, sport, art, politics, medicine, law, culture, the culinary arts, and countless other fields.

Macedonian immigration to the United States has been ongoing for over a century, culminating in significant populations estimated at over half a million Americans of Macedonian descent living in the United States.
