Narratives of mixed ancestry in Cape Verde use gender as common denominator in the weaving of a Creole nation. These narratives may hide tensions, conflicts, and adversities, but they also contain elements of fusion and national cohesion. They are and have been gendered narratives, partial and selective of the elements of fusion substantiating and sustaining a Cape Verdean identity vis-à-vis the multiple symbolic and material challenges faced by this young post-colonial nation-state. In them, Cape Verde is portrayed as an exceptional African case with boundaries carved by the ocean, free from ethnic conflict, and without a pre-colonial past through which to filter present realities. Les récits d'ascendance mixte au Cap-Vert utilisent l'appartenance à un sexe comme un dénominateur commun dans le tissage d'une nation créole. Ces récits peuvent dissimuler les tensions, conflits et les difficultés, mais ils contiennent aussi des éléments de fusion et de cohésion nationale. Ces récits sont et ont été sexués, chargés de partialité et établissant une sélection des éléments de fusion qui fondent et qui entretiennent une identité capverdienne vis-à-vis des multiples défis symboliques et matériels auxquels doit faire face ce jeune État-nation post-colonial. Ils dressent un portrait du Cap-Vert comme un cas africain exceptionnel aux frontières délimitées par l'océan, sans conflit ethnique et sans passé pré-colonial à travers lequel filtrer les réalités actuelles. Narrativas de ascendência mista em Cabo Verde utilizam o género como denominador comum no entretecer de uma nação crioula. Essas narrativas podem esconder tensões, conflitos e adversidades, mas também contêm elementos de fusão e de coesão nacional. São e têm sido narrativas criadas, parciais e selectivas dos elementos de fusão substanciando e sustentando uma identidade caboverdiana perante os múltiplos desafios simbólicos e materiais que esta jovem nação pós-colonial tem enfrentado. Nelas, Cabo Verde é retratado como um caso africano de excepção com fronteiras cavadas pelo oceano, livre de conflitos étnicos e sem um passado pré-colonial através do qual se possamfiltrar as realidades actuais.
