"To look and move forward we must often first look to the past and where we came from. We must look to our kūpuna (ancestors) for examples, guidance, and inspiration. The greatest legacy and gift that we have received from our kūpuna is Aloha. As a political party we will advocate for healthcare, education, jobs, economy, affordable housing, and a better quality of life for everyone. In addition, we will not only protect, but steward the land understanding the connection between kānaka (people) and ʻāina (land).
The Aloha ʻĀina Party will stand, recognize, and advocate for Aloha as our greatest hope and strength. Aloha is the greatest force in creation, stronger then fear and hate. The Aloha ʻĀina Party is not simply a political party, it is a movement, a movement powered by Aloha. A movement of hope for real change towards a brighter day. May Aloha be both our sword and shield.
Mai kūpuna mai
Generation to generation
May we continue to walk in the footsteps of our kūpuna."
