“Paniolo” – The Hawaiian Cowboy

The first cattle were gifted to Hawaiʻi in 1793. Uncontrolled, they eventually plundered villages, gardens and farms. By invitation from King Kamehameha III, vaquero arrived as mentors of the native Hawaiians. Thus began the unique story of the Hawaiian Paniolo.

THE PANIOLO PRESERVATION SOCIETY exists to promote the heritage of the Hawaiian cowboy. We celebrate the Hawaiian ranching industry and the accomplishments of the generations of paniolo that made that industry possible. Representing all cowboys from all of the Hawaiian islands, our goal is to increase public awareness of the historical, present-day and future significance of Hawaiʻi’s ranching industry and the honored traditions of its paniolo.
