Benjamin Bratt and BABE star James Cromwell are among the celebrities set to attend Friday's (20MAY05) annual gathering of the Native American tribes in California.

The actors will join Native American movie star Wes Studi, Peter Coyote and WILMA MANKILLER, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation, at the American Indian College Fund's Annual Gadugi (corr) at Los Angeles' Museum of the American West.

Representatives from 33 tribal colleges will perform traditional dances at the fundraising gala.

The event will be extra special for movie star Bratt - his mother is a Peruvian Quechua (corr) Indian from Lima, Peru.
