Alaskan Independence Party
The Alaskan Independence Party
is a political party
in the U.S. state

In 1990, Walter Joseph Hickel, a former Republican, won the election for Governor of Alaska as a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, although for the most part he ignored the platform of the party once in office.
