The Sikule language (also called Sibigo, Sigulai, Ageumeui, or Wali Banuah) is spoken on Simeulue island off the western coast of Sumatra in Indonesia.[2]

Sikule is spoken in Alafan subdistrict, on the western end of Simeulue island. It is apparently related to the Nias language.[3] Ethnologue lists Lekon and Tapah as dialects.[4]
