The new kid on the blog.

Asalaamu alaikum, everyone.

Robert was kind enough to invite me to contribute to The American Muslim, and especially as I’ve not commented often, an introduction seems indicated.

I’m Nakia, a former Public Affairs Officer in the Coast Guard Auxiliary, writer, musician, educator, and polygamous crafter. I’ve made history and soap, and am currently recovering from a rocky stint as a Navy wife. I identify as a progressive Muslim, but not as most of folks’ ridiculous notions of what a progressive Muslim/African American/woman/crafter/feminist should be.

What will I blog about? Pretty much whatever strikes my fancy, which will likely focus on cultural and religious issues. I hope this will provide an interesting counterpoint to Robert’s posts- but you’ll tell me either way, I’m sure.
