No, Nakamura was born in Hirakata, Japan, though his mother was
American. He moved with his family to the USA at the age of two.
If by "native-born American" the OP means "born on US soil," the
last such champion would be Larry Christiansen in 2002:

Other recent US-born champions include Joel Benjamin, Nick DeFirmian
and Patrick Wolff.

To me, it's more significant if a player *developed* in the U.S. Both
Nakamura and Seirawan honed their skills in this country.

I take it you are not a birther.

Michael Wilder who won in 1988 was born in the USA.

Was it the Adirondacks?
