Lipo (autonym: li˥pʰɔ˨˩; Chinese: 里泼), or Eastern Lisu, is a language of the Lisu people of China, similar to but not intelligible with Lisu proper. Some Lipo are classified by the government as Lisu, others as Yi. In some areas, the people prefer the name Lolopo or Lolongo.

Some Lipo (Lipa 利帕) speakers in Eryuan and Yongsheng counties are also referred to as Tujia (土家) (Yunnan 1956:19-20).[3]
