The Aloha Aina Party was a conservative political party in Hawaii. The main office of the Aloha Aina Party is located in Hilo, Hawaii Island with satellite offices on each island; Maui, Oahu and Kauai.
In 2000 the Aloha Aina Party was established by Vickie Holt Takamine as a revival of the Home Rule Party. The party focused on Hawaiian sovereignty and representing Native Hawaiian voices in local politics.
In 2016 Desmon Haumea, Pua Ishibashi, and Donald Kaulia worked to obtain enough petitions for the party to appear on the 2016 election ballot. They held an official Aloha Aina Party Rally in Hilo for petition signing and voter registration on January 3, 2016. The State of Hawaii Elections Board required 707 qualified, registered voters to sign and complete the petition to qualify ballot status. The party was not able to obtain the minimum number of signatures required by the deadline, and were not on the ballot in 2016.
