Lonkundu, also called Mongo or Nkundo or Mongo-Nkundu (Lomongo, Lonkundu), is a Bantu language spoken by several of the Mongo peoples in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Mongo speakers reside in central DR Congo over a large area inside the curve of the Congo River. Mongo is a tonal language. There are a large number of dialects.

Lonkundu is not currently taught on the IU campus, but we do have access to archived materials. Learn more about Lonkundu here.
