Saponi is an extinct Papuan language of Indonesia. It was spoken in Botawa village of Waropen Bawah Subdistrict in Waropen Regency. It shared half of its basic vocabulary with the Rasawa language, but it is not clear that they were related. Saponi shared none of its pronouns with the Lakes Plain family that Rasawa is part of; indeed its basic pronouns mamire "I, we" and ba "thou" are reminiscent of proto–East Bird's Head *meme "we" and *ba "thou".
