In the spirit of The Boys in the Boat comes the captivating true story of the Hawaiian cowboys who changed rodeo and the West forever. In August 1908, three unknown riders arrived in Cheyenne, Wyoming, their hats adorned with wildflowers, to compete in the world’s greatest rodeo. They had travelled 3,000 miles from Hawaii, where their ancestors had herded cattle for generations, to test themselves against the toughest riders in the West. Dismissed by whites, who considered themselves the only true cowboys, the Hawaiians left the heartland as champions - and American legends. David Wolman and Julian Smith’s Aloha Rodeo unspools a fascinating and little-known tale, blending rough-knuckled frontier drama with a rousing underdog narrative. Tracing the life story of steer-roping virtuoso Ikua Purdy and his cousins Jack Low and Archie Ka’au’a, the writers delve into the dual histories of ranching in the islands and the meteoric rise and sudden fall of Cheyenne, ´´Holy City of the Cow”. At the turn of the century, larger-than-life personalities like ´´Buffalo Bill” Cody and Theodore Roosevelt capitalized on a national obsession with the Wild West and helped transform Cheyenne’s annual Frontier Days celebration into an unparalleled rodeo spectacle, the ´´Daddy of ‘em All”. A great deal rode on the Hawaiians’ shoulders during those dusty days in August. Just a decade earlier, the overthrow of Hawaii’s monarchy and forced annexation by the US had traumatized an independent nation whose traditions dated back centuries. Journeying to the mainland for the first time, the young riders brought with them the pride of a people struggling to preserve their cultural identity and anxious about their future under the rule of overlords an ocean away. In Cheyenne, the Hawaiians didn’t just show their mastery of riding and roping, skills that white Americans thought they owned. They also overturned simplistic think 1. Language: English.

Hawaii has a secret. It is a dark and terrible thing. It involves racism, hate crimes, and brain washing. Hawaiians have been isolated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for centuries. First contact with foreigners happened in 1778. Hawaii became a unified kingdom, through war, in the early 1800s. His Majesty, King Kamehameha ´´the great´´ conquered the eight largest islands in the Hawaiian archipelago. The speedy decline of the Hawaiian race began when King Kamehameha ´´the great´´ died. He died in 1819. After he died, the religious system and law design was abolished. Hawaii was a nation with millions in 1800. Rule of the new kingdom went to young chief after young chief. The inexperience of Kamehameha´s predecessors added to the genocide of Hawaii. This, along with, the arrival of the first Christian missionaries, pounded the nail further into the hands of the Hawaiian nation. The missionaries were sent from Boston in 1819. They arrived in Kona, Hawaii in 1820. Their mission was to convert the natives to Christianity, build schools, stores, churches, and develop a monetary value system. To everyone´s surprise, there was no religion to convert. The first time in the history of the world a nation has been overthrown without the use of war. Slowly more and more power was being stripped from the Kings. Until, finally, in 1863 the Kingdom of Hawaii was overthrown by the original Boston missionaries´ sons. Hawaii has been forgotten ever since. Find out what it was like growing up in a time of revitalization. 1. Language: English. Narrator: A.Z. Keliilokomaikai Matsuda.
