The Sundanese are an Austronesian ethnic group native to the Indonesian province of West Java and Banten, which is located at the western part of the Indonesian island of Java. They number approximately 40 million, and form Indonesia's second most populous ethnic group, after the neighboring Javanese. In their language, Sundanese, the Sundanese refer to themselves as Urang Sunda (Template:Lang-su), while Orang Sunda or Suku Sunda is its Indonesian equivalent.

The Sundanese have traditionally been concentrated in the provinces of West Java, Banten, Jakarta, and the western part of Central Java. Sundanese migrants can also be found in Lampung and South Sumatra, and to lesser extent in Central Java and East Java.
