Idu Mishmi is a Digaro language, a group of languages which possibly belongs to the Sino-Tibetan language family. It is spoken in northeast India in the Dibang Valley district of Arunachal Pradesh. There are also speakers in China in Zayü County (察隅县 / རྫ་ཡུལ་རྫོང་།) in Nyingchi (林芝市 / ཉིང་ཁྲི་གྲོང་ཁྱེར།) in the southeast of the Tibet Autonomous Region. According to the 2001 census, there were 11,000 speakers.
Idu Mishmi is also known as Idu, Yidu, Midu, Mindri or Mithu. In Chinese it is known as 义都语 (Yìdū yŭ).
Idu Mishmi is rarely written. A version of the Tibetan alphabet was traditionally used, and the Latin alphabet is currently used.
