The Sherdukpens are also a small tribe inhabiting the southern part of the Bondila Range in the valleys of Tengapani river. The main concentration is spread over the three main villages of Kupa, Jigaon and Shergaon. However at present, some of them have settled in Kameng bari areas, a new settlement area under Bhalukpong circle. 

Their society is patriarchal. A greater share of inheritance devolves from father to the eldest son. Monogamy is the prevailing form of marriage among the Sherdukpens.
