Shupun means Shepherds in wakhi language
and it refers to the wakhi people whoz lives had been associated with cattles and they were the best shepherd live in the
Mountains around Wakhan and spent lives as nomades.
Shupuns also refers to the very basic principal of Wakhi people that is
“Caring for each other mutually “
and on this principal every thing in a wakhi society is still set, So the wakhi people will be known as Shupuns till the time they sustain this very beautiful feature of their culture inside it. I pray it remains there forever.
