Masakará is an extinct language related to Kamakã, believed to be part of the Macro-Jê languages of Brazil. It was once spoken south of the city of Juazeiro and at the old mission of Saco dos Morcegos (present-day Mirandela, Banzaê, near Ribeira do Pombal, Bahia State).[1]

The district of Massacará in Euclides da Cunha, Bahia is named after the tribe.

Martins (2007)[2] classifies Masakará as the most divergent of the Kamakã languages.
