The fame of the Hawaiian paniolo reaches Wyoming, 1908.

The fame of the Hawaiian boys in their lassoing has spread to Wyoming, America, where the steer roping contest is always held, and an invitation was received from there for some Hawaiian Boys to attend. We have no doubts that these Hawaiians will return adorned in victory in the various contests, being that it is clear that the little ability of the haole cannot match that of the Hawaiian boys in this skill. Paiia ke oolea!¹ O Hawaiians, go fetch your glory!

¹Is anyone familiar with the exclamation: “Pai ia ke oolea!”?

(Kuokoa, 6/5/1908, p. 4)

Ua kuʻi aku ke kaulana o na keiki Hawaii...

Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke XLIII, Helu 23, Aoao 4. Iune 5, 1908.
