Ives Roqueta ([ˈives ruˈketɔ]) (born 29 February 1936 in Sète, Hérault, died January 4, 2015) was an Occitan author. He played a major role in the country's political and cultural movement. He was the president of the IEO for a number of years and his brother Joan, better known as Joan Larzac, is a writer and an Occitan activist as well. He founded the Ventadorn record company, which can be credited for providing Nòva cançon singers with a proficient media outlet.

His cultural and political action is highly controversial.

Some think that he's one of the pioneers of his generation and stands among the nation's most talented poets and novelists.

Other Occitan analysts say that he had a very negative impact over the occitanist movement during the end of the 1970s and the 1980s. Particularly, his anti-scholar positions led to the split of the IEO in 1981.
