Notes:  Chen Qiguang [陈其光]. 2001. "A Brief Introduction of Bana Language [巴那语概况]". Minzu Yuwen.

Pa Na (autonym pa53 na313; also Bana or Pana) is a Hmongic language spoken by about 1,000 people in Shangpai 上排, Zhongpai 中排, and Xiapai 下排 of Chengbu County, and Huangsangping Ethnic Miao Township 黄桑坪苗族乡, Suining County in Hunan province, China. Data was collected in December 1983.

Chen considers Pa Na to form a branch with She. There are similarities with Bunu as well. Pa Na language is not listed in Ethnologue.

There are 8 tones: /13/, /313/, /44/, /31/, /35/, /22/, /55/, /53/.
