The Aloha Aina Party of Hawaii (from Aloha ʻAina, love of land) was a political party of the state of Hawaii in the United States, founded by dance teacher Vickie Holt Takamine in 1997, and bolstered by a merger with former Honolulu mayor Frank Fasi's Best Party of Hawaii. A modern reincarnation of the Home Rule Party of Hawaii that was then led by Congressman Robert William Wilcox, the Aloha Aina Party of Hawaii was resurrected as a result of native Hawaiians' discontent with the Governor Benjamin J. Cayetano's decision to support the Hawaii State Legislature replacement of Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustees as a result of a 2000 United States Supreme Court decision, Rice v. Cayetano. This is part of the Aloha Aïna service learning project. The Aloha Aina party did not have ballot status.
