Tai Wynyard Makes a Magazine Cover

Kentucky’s Tai Wynyard is on newsstands across his home country of New Zealand.

Mana Magazine provides the Maori perspective to readers across New Zealand.  Highlighting an increasing number of Kiwis taking their basketball talents to America, Mana profiled Wynyard’s progress by spending a week in Kentucky.

“My dad reminds me of it all the time,” Wynyard, the 2014 Māori Sportsman of the Year, says of the importance of representing his culture abroad.

“You’ve just got to rep yourself, rep New Zealand and the Māori culture. People over here don’t really know anything about my culture. They think we just do the haka. It gets annoying.”

You can read a portion of the article here, but to read the entire article you’ll have to purchase this issue of Mana Magazine.
