Olly Ohlson

Olly Ohlson is a pioneer of Māori language and Māori content on New Zealand television. As a longtime presenter on daily children's show After School, his catchphrase “Keep cool till after school” (with accompanying sign language) was well known to a generation of New Zealanders.

The biggest thing is to be proud to be Māori, and to be proud to be an individual. And the Māori philosophy helps them [Māori youth] to stand a bit taller.
