Author: Benjamin Naka-Hasebe Kingsley

Benjamín Naka-Hasebe Kingsley is not the Ben Kingsley best known for his Academy Award-winning role as Mahatma Gandi. This Ben is a touch less famous, having not acted since his third-grade debut as the Undertaker in Music Man. Affrilachian author and Kundiman alum, Ben is currently the 22nd Tickner Writing Fellow and recipient of a Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center Fellowship. He belongs to the Onondaga Nation of Indigenous Americans in New York. His poems are found in Best New Poets 2017 (Ed. Natalie Diaz), Native Voices: Indigenous Poetry from North America, and Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors, and in many journals including American Indian Culture and Research, Boston Review, Kenyon Review, New England Review, Oxford American, and Tin House. His books include COLONIZE ME (Saturnalia Books, 2019) and NOT YOUR MAMA'S MELTING POT (The Backwaters Press, 2018).
