Salaamata (peace) in Afar or Qafar of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti from The Meaning of Peace in 8000 Languages
"Nagaya" is peace in Afar, also known as Oromo, a language of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Kenya, East Africa, and the Horn of Africa. A common greeting is “bultiin isaanii nagaya?” (is your night peaceful?) to which the common answer is "nagaa keessa walgarra" (we see one another in peace). Think about how you greet people and how you respond to their questions about your sleep, your health, your mood, etc.

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
