The Buyi or Bouyei people (Self called: "Puyi", "Puzhong", "Burao", "Puman"; Chinese: 布依族; pinyin: byī z) are an ethnic group living in southern People's Republic of China.

The Buyi live in semi-tropical, high-altitude forests of Guizhou province, as well as in Yunnan and Sichuan provinces, and speak a Tai language related to Zhuang. Traditionally they practice animism, although some have now converted to Christianity.
