Paniolos, a.k.a. Hawaiian Cowboys, still keep the upcountry culture alive in Makawao town, Maui.  Makawao hosts a yearly rodeo attended by paniolos from all over the Hawaiian islands (the only rodeo in the state).  I was glad to attend my first event, rooting mostly for the tiny Filipina cowgirl dressed in a green t-shirt and jeans.
