Massakory is the capital of the Chadian region of Hadjer-Lamis and of the department of Dagana. The town was formerly in the prefecture of Fort-Lamy in the department of Bas-Chari. The territory around Massakory used to be ruled by the sultan of Ouaddaï. Two tribes dominate this region: the Dagana, nomadic herders, in the interior and the Kuori Kalé on the shores and islands of the western part of the lake. The traditional head of the canton of Dagana-Moussakory is Koulbu, a dynasty distantly related to Kanembu people. A significant part of this family lives in the Gouré region of Niger. Their ancestor Moussa Kanembou arrived there about six generations ago. There are also Toundjour people in the town.
