Oroch is a Tungusic language spoken in eastern Siberia in the Russian Federation by about 8 people. It is spoken the Komsomolsky, Sovetskaya Gavan and Ulchsky districts of Khabarovsk Krai. There were three dialects: Tumninsky, Khadinsky and Hungarisky. Oroch is closely related to the Nanai and Udege languages. It is classified as 'nearly extinct'.
The Oroch people originally called themselves нани ("man of the earth, people"), but now call themselves орочи ("deer-possessing/raising"), although they do not raise deer. This name is thought to have been spread by J.F. Laperouse, a French sailor who visited the area where they live in 1787.
A way of writing Oroch was devised at the beginning of the 21st century.
