Kutai Malay is a dialect continuum of the Malay language spoken by the Kutai people, who live along the Mahakam River in Borneo. They are the principal population in the West Kutai, Kutai Kartanegara, and East Kutai Regencies.

Little literature was produced in Kutai during the period of administration of the Kutai Kartanegara Sultanate with most writing being done in Malay in the Jawi script.

The three principal dialects, which have little mutual intelligibility, are Tenggarong, Kota Bangun, and Ancalong Estuary.
