A New Day at Pukalani Stables

Kimo Ho'opai offers the traditional blessing.

June 25th, 2011 marked the dedication of the new Paniolo Heritage Center @ Pukalani Stables. For over a decade the Paniolo Preservation Society has worked to showcase the living heritage of Hawaii’s ranching industry and its proud paniolo. It’s hard to imagine a better place to do that than the century old Pukalani Stables on Parker Ranch.

Kimo & Friends

Hawaiian cowboy kanikapili by Kimo & Friends provided sweet music as the community gathered to share stories and celebrate the lives and accomplishments of Hawaii’s ranching legends. Mahalo for the support of so many people who made this dream a reality, and to our new members whose support is essential in continuing the PPS mission to preserve and promote this unique cultural heritage.

Already on view is the Oahu Cattlemen’s Association ‘Paniolo Hall of Fame’ along with a number of saddles and an extensive collections of spurs and bits. Mahalo for your support and we’ll see you at the Paniolo Heritage Center!  A hui hou!
