"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 we have 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. I believe the Aloha ʻĀina Party is our opportunity for real change towards a brighter day."

“I believe Hawai‘i can and should be a light and inspiration to the world, of what a diversified and multi-cultural society can be and do. It is our multifaceted ethnic perspectives, values, and beliefs, that gives Hawai‘i its depth, richness, and strength, that allows us to be inclusive, and to pull together towards common goals. I believe there is nothing we cannot do and accomplish if we work together. The Aloha ʻĀina Party will embrace and enhance the very best of what makes Hawai‘i special. As the name implies, the Aloha ʻĀina Party will aloha the People, mālama (care for) the ʻĀina (land), hold the State Government accountable for its acts and non-acts, and Hoʻoponopono. In the words of my kūpuna from Kaʻu, "E hume i ka malo, e ho‘okala i ka ihe" - Tighten the malo, sharpen the spear, i.e., prepare for the task at hand."

"I stand on the shoulders of my Tūtū Kāne, James Kaulia, President of Hui Aloha ʻĀina (1897). My tūtū kāne did all he could to fight against the annexation of Hawai‘i to the U.S.. He was also instrumental in the facilitation of the Anti-Annexation Petitions (aka Ku‘e Petitions). Today I continue the fight of my tūtū kāne, not to fight against annexation, but to fight for the return of what was taken from all of our kūpuna, all of us today, and our future generations! Today I fight for Hoʻoponopono, to make right what is wrong, and restore that which was lost, as it relates to the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Nation in 1893. I call upon all Kānaka ‘Oiwi, and lovers of truth and justice, to stand with us in this quest, as brothers and sisters of the Aloha ʻĀina Party, until the last Aloha ʻĀina!"
