The Nkoya (also Shinkoya) people are a Bantu people native to Zambia, mostly found in the Western and Southern provinces and the Mankoya area. Their language is a member of zone L of the Bantu languages. As of 2006, they were estimated to number 146,000 people. Besides Nkoya proper, Nkoya dialects include Mbowela (Mbwela, Mbwera, Shimbwera), Lushangi, Shasha, Lukolwe, Mashasha. The Mbwera people are reported to be related to the Mbwela people of Angola (between rivers Cuando and Cubango), but the language of the latter has been related to the Chokwe-Lunda group.
