This chapter puts labour migration at the edge in a broader context of the economic and social systems that have emerged in remote areas. Labour migration stories are usually told around 'outsiders' to the remote North, migration has always been a 'central part' of living in the North for all populations. Migration practices are important in maintaining traditional knowledge as in joining the global economy. Huskey notes that Northern economies are in three parts: the market economy, the public transfer economy and the traditional/subsistence economy. Despite the straggles with youth outmigration and female flight, there are those who fight against the reputation of the remote regions as 'no place for women'. Bilal Selmani left a farming town in Albania, travelled to Connecticut and on to Alaska when a friend said that was the place to make money fast. Iqaluit is a place where people seem to wash ashore, like Indian wedding decorations or terra cotta pot shards in Jamaica Bay.
