Pretty sure there weren't any "Nyack tribe" of Native Americans
The third sentence of this article ends with "... began purchasing land from the Canarsee and Nyack tribes." However, to the best I can determine, there weren't ever a tribe of Native Americans in that area who went by the name "Nyack". That link just leads to a DAB page, which points to the village of Nyack, New York, among other things. The Wikipedia page for the village has a vague reference to the name being of Native American origin, but nothing specific. According to a few other webpages I found, it was indeed a Native American name, but a place name, not a name of a tribe.
