From left, sisters Kamehana, 11 and Nahe Tachera, 9, whose great-grandfather, grandfather and father are or were all cowboys, look through Kamehana's scrapbook of cowboys pictures outside their home on Kahua Ranch in North Kohala, Hawaii.  The girls live with their father, Wayne Tachera, in "cowboy housing" on the ranch.  The girls learned to ride horses as toddlers and have grown up with the ranch as their playground. "We're definitely cowgirls", says Kamehana who regularly competes in rodeos.
