The Zowie Banteah Cultural House, at 4 Dunlap Place, is located on the top floor of the Eliana Ortega House. The center provides cultural space for students who identify as Native American or have Native American ancestry. During the academic year, students host various programs, both academic and social, in the center. For information about the centerand how to reserve it, please contact Event Planning at the Office of Student Programs: http://www.mtholyoke.edu/studentprograms/eventplanning.html

Once reservations have been confirmed through event planning, The Dean of Students Office holds the key to the Zowie House. Contact the Dean of Students Office at http://www.mtholyoke.edu/deanofstudents/

The house was opened in the fall of 1995 and was originally known as Native Spirit. In the spring of 1997, the house was renamed the Zowie Banteah Cultural House to honor the alumna who was instrumental in founding the house.



We seek to provide support for Native American students, to promote
general awareness of issues concerning the Native American population at
Mount Holyoke, and to strengthen the college's affiliation with Native
American students in the Five College community.
