Cape Verde is considered an immigrant nation, as the country's diaspora significantly outstrips the local population. The Cape Verde population of the United States, concentrated in the New England states, is estimated at 1.2 to 2.5 million people, which is about 2% of the total population of Cape Verde.
Although the official language of Cape Verde is Portuguese, some Cape Verdes also speak a unique Creole dialect. Portuguese is the most widely spoken language in the United States and represents a subtype of Portuguese with subtypes of G, Bbe, and C, as well as a number of other languages.
There are actually 10 islands that make up Cape Verde, and each has its own charm and feel. Although it is the second largest island, you will find that Santo Antao has many things to do, such as shopping, eating, fishing, shopping and of course music.
Boa Vista is one of the most popular islands that attracts visitors to Cape Verde, and it has some of the best beaches. Boa Vista has been proclaimed a secluded island paradise perfect for road, dune and adventure.
The organization was founded in 2009 by the Garcia Adorers sisters, who also came to Cape Verde from Spain and Portugal. New Bedford was also the home of the Schooner Ernestina, who allied with the Cape Verdes in the 20th century. Santiago is the cultural heart of Cape Verde, while Sao Vicente is Mindelo to the north and Mindelo to the south. At its peak, Santiago was the main site for the slave trade and, with over 1,000 slaves, housed the largest concentration of slave labor in Africa.
The local guide, Salazar, was very knowledgeable and helpful, sharing his knowledge of Cape Verde's history and culture. Literature is very rich on Santiago Island, and literature on the Cape Verde Islands is rich. The trip was intended for the mayor to lead the delegation into a discussion about the impact of the slave trade and its impact on Cape Verde here in Boston. Our program of the Art Embassy wanted to exhibit Cape Verde and American artists in New Bedford as well as in other parts of Boston and New England.
Let us start with the basics, because it is safe to say that many of you would have difficulty in drawing a map of Cape Verde. In this sense, I want to share with you so many amazing experiences and things we have done. In my opinion, it is the natural beauty that has enabled us to do the best things in Cape Verde. About 15 km away is the town of Porto Alegre, known as the first European town to be built and where the colonization of the Cape Verde Islands began.
Cape Verde was discovered in 1456 by Portuguese sailors who recognised its strategic position and settled and built it as an outpost for the slave trade. It flourished until the 1770s, when sustained pirate attacks led the Portuguese to call nearby Praia, its capital, instead.
At the same time, the number of foreign investors and investments in Cape Verde has also increased significantly. This is why so many companies doing business in Africa now have offices and plants in Praia and offices in other parts of Africa.
The Cape Verde Government has an excellent record on human rights issues and Caritas CapeVerde has participated in numerous international conferences on issues such as gender equality and freedom of expression. Corruption in Africa is simply overwhelming, and therefore day and night by comparison.
The Cape Verdes have survived and thrived thanks to the mixture of attributes that make up their character. New Bedford is the oldest port in the world and dates back to the 1790s, when a whaling ship docked in Cape Verde to fetch supplies.
The decline of Cape Verde became apparent when the Portuguese Crown agreed that slaves could be bought directly from the United States, which bypassed Cape Verde altogether. The new Communist government in Lisbon ordered the seizure of the entire country on the islands and the destruction of most of its infrastructure. However, there is still a considerable amount of natural resources in Capeverde, such as gold, silver and copper, and it has recovered some of this wealth.
In 2008, Cape Verde graduated as one of the least developed countries on the World Bank's list of Global Development Goals (LDGs). Only two countries have managed to leave the list of L-DCD countries: Angola and Mozambique, both in the Middle East and North Africa.
The Cape Verde Islands were founded in 1879 and in 1951 the status of the islands was changed from a colony to an overseas province. In 1951, the Portuguese converted their status from colonies to overseas provinces and in 1961 granted full Portuguese citizenship to all Cape Verdeans.
