Inku was an Indo-Aryan language formerly spoken throughout Afghanistan by four of the country's itinerant communities: the Jalali, the Pikraj, the Shadibaz and the Vangawala. Itinerant communities in Afghanistan, whether Inku-speaking or not, are locally known as "Jats", a term which is not a self-designation of the groups but rather a collective, often pejorative name given by outsiders. It is presumably for this reason that the language is called Jakati in the Ethnologue encyclopedia.
