Minica Huitoto (mee-nee-kah wee-toh-toh) is one of three indigenous American Huitoto languages of the Witotoan family spoken by a few thousand speakers in western South America.

It is spoken in the Upper Igara-Parana river area, along the Caqueta River at the Isla de los Monos, and the Caguan River near San Vicente del Caguan. There is 75% literacy in Colombia and 85% are literate in Spanish; most are bilingual. There is a dictionary and grammar rules.

There are only five speakers in Peru, where it has official standing within its community.
