Bankan Tey Dogon, at first called Walo-Kumbe Dogon after the two main villages it is spoken in, also known as Walo and Walonkore, is a divergent, recently described Dogon language spoken in Mali. It was first reported online by Roger Blench,[1] who reports that it is "clearly related to Nanga", which is only known from one report from 1953.

A third village investigated at the time, Been, speaks a related but lexically distinct form, Ben Tey Dogon.
