The Mang (Chinese: 莽人; pinyin: Mángrén; Vietnamese: Mảng) are an ethnic group living primarily in Vietnam, where they are one of that nation's 54 officially recognized ethnic groups. There are also about 500 Mang living in the Yunnan province of southern China, where they are officially termed an undistinguished nationality.

The Mang language is part of the Pakanic branch of the Austroasiatic language family.
