August 1908, three unknown riders arrived in Cheyenne, Wyoming, their hats
adorned with wildflowers, to compete in the world’s greatest rodeo.
Steer-roping virtuoso Ikua Purdy and his cousins Jack Low and Archie Ka’au’a
had travelled 3,000 miles from Hawaii, of all places, to test themselves
against the toughest riders in the West.
by whites, who considered themselves the only true cowboys, the native
Hawaiians would astonish the country, returning home champions—and American
legends. An unforgettable human drama set against the rough-knuckled frontier, Aloha
Rodeo unspools the fascinating and little-known true story of the Hawaiian
cowboys, or paniolo, whose 1908 adventure upended the conventional history of
the American West.
