|Abstract:||In the last decades of the twentieth century, the Americas experienced an undeniable resurgence of indigenous peoples. At the political level, that revival brought to the forefront the demands for autonomy through which Indigenous peoples sought to establish a fairer framework of relationships with the state. This dissertation examines how two federations – polities that, according to some scholars, embody the principles of federalism as combination of shared and autonomous government – respond to the demands of indigenous autonomy. Thus, based on the observation that institutional adaptation of Canadian and Mexican federations has been insufficient to meet the autonomic aspirations of Indigenous peoples, the dissertation addresses a normative exploration on the restoration of Indigenous self-government and reconciliation of Indigenous and state sovereignty through federalism.|
