f1fs24 DARLEY NEWMAN: Paniolos are Hawaiian cowboys and if you saddle up at ranches on
the Big Island and Maui, you’92ll learn about the diversity of the island’92s cowboy culture.

f2fs24 DARLEY: On Hawaii’92s Big Island, f1 Parker Ranch and Kahua Ranch both have
stables that are open to the public. They’92re located in the Big Island’92s ranching area,
in the windy hills of upland Waimea. Hawaiian cowboys have been wrangling cattle here since
the 19super thnosupersub century, when vaqueros, cowboys from Mexico, came to Hawaii to help
teach the locals cowboy skills so they control the wild cattle population. It was a dangerous
job to capture cattle on the rugged slopes of Mauna Kea, but the cowboys succeeded and
the Hawaiian cowboy was born. f0fs26>>
f1fs24 DARLEY: So the vaquero influence is seen in a lot of places and a lot of ways
up here in Waimea. f0fs26>>
f1fs24 KAROLL PENOVAROFF: Yes. In the paniolo culture, yes. The saddles that we fashioned
are of vaquero influences. The kinds of reins. The way we ride. The way we sit. Our kinds
of instruments- the ukulele and the guitar are of vaquero influence. They are largely
responsible for the paniolo, you know, paniolo in general. They taught our paniolos how to
cowboy. How to work cattle. pardpardeftab720ri720sl480slmult1

f2fs24 DARLEY: f1 The early Hawaiian cowboys had a tough,
dangerous job on land and at sea. Being on an island, their original shipping methods
were a bit different. Cowboys would actually swim cattle out to boats to ship them off
the islands. You can soak in this distinct culture and history riding at Parker Ranch
and combine riding adventures with views of the Pacific on grassy hills at nearby Kahua
Ranch. }
