"Papiá" was a language spoken in Tugu, village north of Jakarta, by descendants of 17th century Portuguese travelers.

It is a creole language similar to the Papiá Kristang of Malacca. The language was spoken until the 1940s, and the last speaker died in 1978. The language now survives only in the lyrics of old songs of the genre "Keroncong Moresco" or "Keroncong Tugu".
