Rejang is spoken by the Rejang people in southwestern Sumatra, Indonesia. It is a Malayo-Polynesian language but has not been further classified. It has five major dialects. The language is quite different from the similarly named language group Rejang-Baram which is spoken on the island of Borneo in Sarawak and Kalimantan.
It is estimated that there are up to a million Rejang speakers.
