Raojia (Chinese: 绕家语; autonym: ʔeu˧ʑu˨˩[1] or qɑ˨˦ʑuɤ˨˦[2]) is a Hmongic language spoken by about 5,000 people in 3 villages (including Baixing 白兴村) of Heba Township 河坝乡, Majiang County, Guizhou. It may belong to the Huishui Miao dialect cluster, although Wu (2009)[3] classifies it as a Hmu variety.
