How is autonomy different from federalism?

Autonomy is the establishment of a regional government for people living in areas who share a distinct culture, history, heritage and socio-economic conditions. Federalism is a political system in which several states or regions are grouped together to form due to geographic location.
While there exists some measures of self-government, the different state governments shall be under a federal government that would exercise power over them.

As we celebrate the 33rd founding anniversary of the Cordillera this month of July, let's know more about the regions's history and aspirations toward a #OneResilientCordillera!
