FIVE FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES
The Aloha ʻĀina Party adheres to traditional Hawaiian Values and principles of Truth and Justice. These are reflected in our Five Foundational Principles summarized accordingly: (1) We recognize and acknowledge the Dvine; (2) We aloha all the people of Hawai‘i; (3) We mālama the ʻāina as pono stewards; (4) We demand government accountability and transparency, and (5) We advocate for ho‘oponopono, to make right what is wrong, as it relates to the Overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i in 1893.
Recognize the Divine
We recognize and acknowledge the Divine and seek guidance from this source and that of our kūpuna, in all that we do. We also believe all have the privilege to worship, or not, according to the dictates of their own conscience, let them worship how, where, and what they may.
Aloha Kānaka, to love and care for the People, not just Kānaka ʻŌiwi, but all People regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin. This includes the unborn, the living, and the dead (our kūpuna who have passed). Whether speaking of the homeless, health care, cost of living, housing, jobs, education, or quality of life, it’s all about loving and caring for the People and doing what is in the best interest of the People.
Mālama ʻĀina, to understand the symbiotic relationship between kānaka and ʻāina, and to understand that ʻāina has mana, spirit, and intrinsic value beyond its economic value. That some ʻāina need special attention and protection because of its sacred nature. That kānaka and ʻāina are inseparably connected and interdependent, one upon the other. When we take care of the ʻāina, the ʻāina will take care of us.
Government Accountability & Transparency
We believe in a government of the People, by the People, and for the People. We believe government exists to serve the People. As such, government has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of the People, to do all things with transparency, and to be accountable to the People for its acts and non-acts.
To make right what is wrong, is the essence of Ho‘oponopono. There are many things that are not pono in Hawai‘i today, but non-greater than the disenfranchisement of Kānaka ʻŌiwi from their resources and right of self-determination. It is the position of the Aloha ʻĀina Party, that the Overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i in 1893 must be addressed and rectified. That for the good of all the People of Hawai‘i, this wrong must be made right. Only then will pono (balance and righteousness) return to the Land and the People and Lāhui will flourish, Ua Mau Ke Ea O Ka ʻĀina I Ka Pono.
