List of Cape Verdeans

This article is a list of famous people related to Cape Verde.

The words “Cape Verdean” are not always used to express the same notions. They can be used to express:

  1. People who were born in Cape Verde and/or were raised in Cape Verde, generally having lived most of their lives in Cape Verde and who ethnically identify themselves as Cape Verdeans.
  2. People who may or may not have born in Cape Verde, having lived most of their lives outside Cape Verde, having a different nationality than Cape Verdean. Many of these people also have Cape Verdean nationality. Most of these people ethnically identify themselves as Cape Verdeans, having strong ties with Cape Verde and Cape Verdean culture.
  3. People who were not born in Cape Verde but with one or both parents being of one of the two criteria above. Since the ties between Cape Verdean descendants and Cape Verde are usually long lasting, these people often consider themselves as being “Cape Verdeans”.
