I have been to the Heard Museum and to different parts of the Navajo reservation. The Heard is by far one of my favorite museums in Arizona and the Southwest.

I've been to Ayers Rock and Whakarewarewa, easier to pronouce and also known as Waka.
Both places are pretty amazing. Ayers Rock has a visitors center but we did not see any ceremonies or dancing. At Waka, I believe they did have some demos
In NZ we went to a Maori cultural show in Rotorua which was interesting but definitely cheesey.

We also visited a Polynesian cultural village in Moorea, French Polynesia. It was set up like a real village and had various demos, a dance show which was very good and included dinner which was prepared in a hangi. The food is wrapped in banana leaves, placed under ground with hot stones and covered etc...

Not trying to be PC...

..but if we are referring to Indigenous tourism experiences it might be appropriate to call it Uluru... (since 2002 it 's official name has been Uluru/Ayers Rock..)

Just a thought...
