Tashmoo Restaurant & Bar is named after a small lake community in Marthaâ€™s Vineyard. The naming of Lake Tashmoo has several explanations. The word â€œtashmooâ€ comes from an American Indian language and is interpreted as â€œmeeting place.â€ Some say that Lake Tashmoo was named after a son of a Phohoganot, a powerful sachem who lived on the South side of the island. After teaching his son the skill and power of tribal government, Tashmoo was sent out to form a tribe of his own. His mother, Ahoma, a seer, told her son that he would come to a large lake, full of fish, which was connected with the ocean. This lake was surrounded by a wonderful country of hills and valleys, covered with thick forest containing deer and all kinds of game. At the source of this lake, he would find a spring of the purest water, which would mark his journeyâ€™s end. She gave him a pearl shell, telling him to drink from the spring and give it his name. There he should build his wigwam and establish his tribe.
