The Dragon Tree

I chose the Dragon tree to represent Cape Verdean genealogy and our family trees. When you look at tree, just as in our family trees, you don’t see individual branches, they look like clusters of strong tangled branches that support green leaves or lily-like flowers. We are the flowers supported by the strength of the branches who are our ancestors.
Like many of us, the Dragon tree can be traced to Cape Verde, Madeira, Morocco, the Azores and the Canary Islands. Like us, it is rare and valued. Like us, it is sturdy. Like us, variations can be found all over the world. And like us, no matter what variation, it is still a Dragon Tree.

Join me on my journey to connect with my roots, discover our history and explore our Caboverdeanidade.
