Sagipa or Zaquesazipa (died Bosa, 1539) was the fifth and last ruler ( zipa) of Bacatá, currently known as the Colombian capital Bogotá, as of 1537. He was the brother of his predecessor Tisquesusa but the traditional faction of the Muisca considered him an usurper as his nephew Chiayzaque, the cacique of Chía, was the legitimate successor of Tisquesusa. His zaque counterpart in the northern part of the Muisca territory was Aquiminzaque, the last surviving ruler of the Muisca.

Sagipa appears in alternative spellings in the Spanish chronicles; Saquesazippa, Saquezazippa, Sacresasigua and Saxagipa.
