The Manjack people are an ethnic group in Guinea-Bissau. They are known as Manjaku by the Manjacks themselves, Ndiago by the Wolofs of Senegal, Manjaco by the Portuguese, and Manjaque by the French. Each of these terms means "I tell you".

The Manjack language is classified as part of the Bak languages, which is a branch of Niger–Congo.

Strong Manjack communities exist in Senegal, France, The Gambia, and the countries surrounding Guinea-Bissau.

António Baticã Ferreira is a Manjaco poet.
