This chapter explains the historical relevance of Richard Blechynden’s diaries. It argues that Blechynden’s diaries provide insights into colonial impact, cross-cultural influences, social spheres and categories, social mores, and identity. In addition, the stories of Blechynden and his bibis may call into question some current ideas about cultural formations and historical change.

Keywords:   diaries, cross-cultural influence, social mores
