The South Island's biggest iwi says its commercial success is helping pay for rangatahi to become builders, carpenters and electricians.
Ngai Tahu's fisheries, property and tourism divisions made a profit in the past year of almost $100 million.
Chairman Mark Solomon says some of this is being used for He Toki ki te Rika (Maori trades training).
He says the scheme is putting young Maori in work, with 57 out of 62 who completed the first programme getting a job.
A number of other organisations are involved in He Toki ki te Rika, including Canterbury tertiary institution CPIT.
