Xiqi (Chinese: 西期; autonym: ɕi33 tɕhi33 pho21[2]) is an unclassified Loloish language of Huaning County, Yunnan, China. It is also called Siqipo 斯期颇 (sɿ55 tɕhi55 pho21) in Mile County.[3]

Pelkey (2011:431)[1] suggests that the Xiqi, Ati, and Long languages of Huaning County may be Southeastern Loloish languages.
