Hoia Hoia (Hoyahoya) is a Papuan language of Papua New Guinea. It is close to Minanibai. The two varieties, Ukusi-Koparamio Hoia Hoia ("Hoia Hoia" in Ethnologue 16) and Matakaia Hoia Hoia ("Hoyahoya" in Ethnologue 16), are quite distinct, though significantly closer to each other than to other Inland Gulf languages.
