The Paniolo Hall of Fame was initiated by the O`ahu Cattlemen’s Association in 1999 to recognize yesterday’s and today’s paniolo statewide who have contributed to keeping Hawai`i’s paniolo heritage alive, and to honor those who made the paniolo culture legendary.
Now in its 12th year, including our 2011 inductees, there are 116 members, both living and deceased, in the Paniolo Hall of Fame. All of the islands are represented by its members.
All of these paniolo are selected through a nomination process. The O`ahu Cattlemen’s Association mails out the criteria and nomination forms annually. Anyone may request and submit a nomination form.
The Paniolo Hall of Fame presently consists of photo portraits, short biographies and oral history interviews. The portrait exhibit has been on display at Honolulu Hale (City Hall), at the Annual Statewide Paniolo Festival, at the Hawaii Cattlemen’s Council annual meeting, at Parker Ranch Museum, the Hawaii State Library and numerous events and venues on all the islands. It continues to circulate to various locations statewide and may be requested by contacting OCA.
Hawai`i’s surviving paniolo are among the last of a long and colorful chapter in Hawai’`i’s history that should be preserved. With the interviews included in this book, The Paniolo Hall of Fame Oral History project presently consists of 56 completed interviews with living Paniolo Hall of Fame members. The objective of the interview project is to capture and record the life stories of as many paniolo as possible, before they are lost to future generations. The Oral History project will continue into future years, as long as OCA is able to maintain it. Contributions from businesses, individuals and foundations are making this project possible.
The published interviews are available for purchase from OCA, and are
also accessible through the Hawai`i State Library System. They may also be seen online at:
The O`ahu Cattlemen’s Association is grateful for the cooperation of the many paniolo scattered throughout these islands, their families, and the many sponsors big and small, who have made the Paniolo Hall of Fame possible.
