The Stieng people (Vietnamese: Xtiêng) are an ethnic group of Vietnam and Cambodia. They speak Stieng, a language in the Bahnaric group of the Mon–Khmer languages.

Most Stieng live in Bình Phước Province (81,708 in 2009)[1] of the Southeast region of Vietnam. In Cambodia, they are grouped under the heading Khmer Loeu, referring to non-Khmer ethnic groups.

Politically, the Stieng have also been grouped as one of the ethnic groups in the Degar peoples.
