Year 2000
Subject Culture
Format VHS
Region South Pacific
Description Produced by Filmworks, Ltd.. 2000. ISBN: ? Summary This documentary film redefines our childhood notions of the Great American West. In this beautifully crafted picture, the Cowboys are the Indians. Hawaii's Paniolo are the forerunners of the American Cowboy, but their story remains virtually unheralded in frontier history. The film is a tribute to these men and women who learned much of their riding, roping, and saddle making from the great vaqueros. Rare footage includes clips of "shipping cattle" in the 1920s, Will Rogers with Big Island cowboys, Willie Nelson and cowboy songsters Kindy Sproat and Grammy winning composer, Michael Martin Murphey.
