Pana'ewa Stampede Rodeo Description

Our Rodeo Program and Professional Announcer, Justin McKee, will both entertain and inform you about all our events… especially the ones that are “Hawaii-only” ones, based on the early needs of our paniolo to rangle wild cows out of the jungle.

Back in the early days of cattle “ranching”, cattle were allowed to range free through the island. Po’o Wai U is a technique that was developed by the paniolo to capture these free-range pipi ‘āhiu (wild cattle) and it is still used today. The animal would be lassoed and tied to a tree, often a Y shaped tree known as the “aumana”. In today’s Rodeo, we replicate the aumana in the arena. The competing Paniolo will have to rope a steer by the horns, pull the steer to the aumana and tie with a nonchoke knot.

In addition to Rodeo skills in the Arena, we have world-famous Rodeo Clown JJ Harrison, and Rodeo Announcer Justin McKee coming in from the Northwest to keep things jumping! Plus, great ‘local’ food and craft sales, Rodeo T-Shirt & Hat sales and a Paniolo “Hawaiian Cowboy” Cultural Tent.

So join in, on President’s Weekend, to see a Hawaiian Style Rodeo, done no where else in the world!
