Hu (Chinese: 户语), also Angku or Kon Keu, is a Palaungic language of Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan, China. Its speakers are an unclassified ethnic minority; the Chinese government counts the Angku as members of the Bulang nationality, but the Angku language is not intelligible with Bulang.
According to Li (2006:340), there are fewer than 1,000 speakers living on the slopes of the "Kongge" Mountain ("控格山") in Na Huipa village 纳回帕村, Mengyang township 勐养镇, Jinghong 景洪市 (a county-level city).
Hu speakers call themselves the xuʔ55, and the local Dai peoples call them the "black people" (黑人), as well as xɔn55 kɤt35, meaning 'surviving souls' (Yan & Zhou 2012:152). They are also known locally as the Kunge people 昆格人 or Kongge people 控格人 (Li 2006).
