The Banditti of the Prairie also, known as The Prairie Bandits, Pirates of the Prairie, Prairie Pirates, or simply The Banditti, in the U.S. state of Illinois, were a group of loose-knit outlaw gangs during the early-mid-19th century.

Though bands of roving criminals were common in many parts of Illinois, the counties of Lee, DeKalb, Ogle, and Winnebago were especially affected by them. In the year 1841, the escalating pattern of house burglary, horse and cattle theft, stagecoach and highway robbery, counterfeiting, and murder associated with the Banditti had come to a head in Ogle County.

As the crimes continued, local citizens formed bands of vigilantes known as Regulators. The clash between the Banditti and the Regulators in Ogle County resulted in a lynching and decreased Banditti activity within the county.
