The Purpose of the Zowie Banteah Cultural Center
The Zowie Banteah Cultural Center, commonly known as “the Zowie”, promotes visibility and empowerment for Indigenous American cultures by providing space for dialogue and interaction in the Mount Holyoke College community.
Zowie Banteah Cultural Center History
Zowie Banteah Center was opened in 1995 under its original name Native Spirit and was later renamed in 1997 to honor an alumna who was instrumental in its founding. This house creates a cozy environment for Native American that fosters sharing stories about life or words of encouragement and advice.
