Massapequa is a hamlet in the southern part of the Town of Oyster Bay in southeastern Nassau County, New York. As of the 2010 census, the CDP had a total population of 21,685. When the first Dutch settlers arrived on Long Island in 1636, there were approximately 13 Indian tribes or chief tancies comprised of several thousand native Americans. They lived in well defined areas and were known for their location. Thus the Merricock derived their name from their word for "bare land" while the Copiague for "place of shelter."
These Indian tribes, judging from the language and customs, were related to the northern Algonquin rather than to the Iroquois of the Hudson Valley. The Marsapeague - which means "great water land" took its name from the area of south central Nassau with its abundant fresh water springs. The Indians had friendly dealings with the settlers through the efforts of their chief, Sachem Tackapausha. In 1658, Tackapausha gave the settlers of Oyster Bay a deed to the Marsapeague meadowlands thus establishing a European presence in what was to become Massapequa Park. The park and museum on Merrick Road in Seaford are named for the Indian chief.
