WHCC members, family, friends, and HSTA-R Hawaii Island Chapter President Niyati Brown stepped back in time through paniolo country on September 26 at Anna Ranch Heritage Center in Waimea. The rolling video and educational tour brought to life the amazing grit, foresight, wisdom, and flamboyance of Anna Perry-Fiske, known as “The First Lady of Ranching” and “Queen of Pa’u Riders.” Anna left indelible marks in the economy and culture of the community and state. The hundred-acre ranch maintains a herd of ten cattle cross-bred from the Charolais and Charbray stocks she imported.
Participants (from Paauilo through Kealakekua) also walked the colorful gardens and Discovery Trail or chatted with the center’s blacksmith and took advantage of the lunch and shopping venues in town.
