Buzhu[1] or Buku (Chinese: 不窋) was a noble during the Xia dynasty in China.

Born Ji Buzhu or Buku (姬不窋), he was the son of the Xia minister of agriculture and inherited his father's position under the Xia king Kong Jia. Feeling the Xia court to be corrupt, he removed his clan from the capital to Tai. Either he or his son Ji Ju abandoned agriculture completely, employing the nomadic lifestyle of his Rong and Di neighbors instead.[2]

He was claimed as an ancestor of the Zhou dynasty.
