Paniolos were known as the Hawaiian Cowboys, and sprouted a tradition of competing in the sport of Rodeos because of their proud heritage. The Kauai All Girls Rodeo Association organizes events between a few spring and autumn months in order to keep this tradition alive. Encourage their pursuit of the sport and their history by showing up to their various events to see them barrel, round up goats, participate in team roping and more.
