In celebration of the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we were pleased to host the event: Aloha Rodeo: In Conversation with David Wolman.
Now in development with Disney films, Aloha Rodeo unspools the fascinating and little-known true story of the Hawaiian cowboys whose 1908 adventure upended the conventional history of the American West. An unforgettable human drama set against the rough-knuckled frontier, Aloha Rodeo has received widespread acclaim from the New York Journal of Books, NPR, and more.
Please watch the recording to join I-House Global Forum, Global Education, and the Fulbright Association as we took a deeper look into the journey of these three Hawaiian cowboys as they compete in the world’s greatest rodeo and uncover a hidden history of the American West alongside author David Wolman.
