As i understand it the states have far more autonomy than in the Uk for example.   The governor has a lot of power and the law varies a good deal.

Right up to Capital punishment.

Hi Georgie ..............

But that doesn't deal with the issue as to why the indigineous people's have no say ...........................

In a large continent like N. America ................

Just reservations ....................   

Curious in a world full of rights ................

It depends...

If you mean something called "an autonomous region," then the answer is clearly "NO." But  if you mean in the way that the local people appoint their own governor, then George is right about the states having some degree of autonomy.

It's also important to point out the Indian reservations are governed by tribal councils, not by the local or state governments. Some tribes even practice a form of wealth redistribution similar to an ideal communist state. Of course, that doesn't mask the fact that most continue to live in crushing poverty.

Sometimes "autonomy"  is just a word.

The Christian white are extremely fearful of other races or religions. They will never tolerate such autonomous regions.
