Paraguay: Last Maka Indian chief has no male heir
 
Paraguay: Last Maka Indian chief has no male heir - The Denver Post
Britain isn't the only place where people are concerned about the rules of royal succession. In Paraguay, the leader of the Maka (ma-KAA) Indian tribe is lamenting that he has no male heir. Andres Chemhei is 65 years old and has three daughters, but no sons.
As the leader of one of Paraguay's 20 surviving indigenous tribes, he knows that without a son, his family's ancestral rule must come to an end. According to Paraguayan law, his death will trigger a democratic election for a new leader of his 1,500 people.

Ecuador may have found last Inca emperorís tomb | The Raw Story
It has been sought for centuries but remained a mystery, still out of reach. Now an expert has pinpointed a site that could be Atahualpaís resting place: the last Inca emperorís tomb.
[...]
The Inca empire, in the 1400s and early 1500s, spanned much of South Americaís Andean region, over 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers), from modern-day Bolivia and Peru to Argentina, Chile, Ecuador and Colombia. It included dozens of ethnic groups with different languages, cities, temples, farming terraces and fortresses.
Atahualpa was the last of his dynasty. During the Spanish conquest he was taken captive in what is now Cajamarca, Peru.
He had been pressed to convert to Christianity and then the Spanish executed him by strangulation, then after his death in 1533, the empire began to fall apart.
This year Ecuadorís state Cultural Patrimony Institute will start work on a promising archeological site, and Estupinan will be front and center to raise the curtain on a massive complex sprawling over a ridge at 1,020 meters.

In Canada tribes were dealt with on a case by case basis so there was no formal organization until much later.

If you want to look at native monarchies I suggest you research into the former Hawaii monarchy. There may even be a thread on it in one of the other forums.

Thats true, there is no native monarchy in NZ, there is a Maori King who is a hereditary chief of a few tribes in the north island but does not represent every tribe in NZ.
The treaty of Waitangi was signed by each tribal chief from what was really a confederacy.
Perhaps it could be said that there were native principalities?

You might declare that with Henri I of Haiti everything was Henry/Henri.
He founded the Royal Military Order of Saint Henry.
Le Cap was renamed by him as Cap-Henri.
His son and heir was Jacques-Victor Henry.

She wasn't a monarch, or a royal.

Am I the only one who found the history of the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia to be rather fascinating?
