"Hawaiian Cowboys, Waimea," Hawaii

By H. R. Hanna, 1899

Cattle were introduced to Hawaii in 1793. In 1832 King Kamehameha III brought three Hispanic “vaqueros” from California to the islands to train Hawaiians to handle horses and cattle. Hawaiian cowboys, or “paniolos,” were soon riding the range much like their mainland counterparts.
