The Alaskan Bush People clan has been compromised by parents Billy and Ami Brown, along with their seven children, Matt Brown, Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown, Solomon “Bear” Brown, Gabriel “Gabe” Brown, Noah Brown, Amora “Birdy” Brown, and Merry Christmas “Rainy” Brown. Better known as the “Wolfpack” to fans, the family became famous on the Discovery Channel for their decision to live off the grid in the wilderness of Alaska. Throw some curious personalities into the mix, and you’ve got yourself an immersive TV show.
However, in recent years, the group’s off-screen antics have aroused more interest than the actual show. Some hot topics dominating the headlines lately? The series’ supposed fakeness, the reported quarrel between Matt and Billy Brown, and the move of the Alaskan family to Washington in 2018. The family purchased a “435-acre property in the Washington State North Cascade Mountains” nicknamed “The North Star Farm,” according to People.
Given that the Brown family based their success on living in Alaska, it’s fair to wonder why they bailed out Washington. The truth? This is a serious situation.
Alaskan Bush People: The family did what was best for Ami Brown
After Ami Brown was diagnosed with phase 3 non-small cell lung cancer in April 2017, the Browns reasoned that it would make sense to get somewhere closer to civilization, making it easier to control her health.
That place is a vast stretch of land in Washington where any sibling can build their own home, creating a new kind of “Browntown. The best part? It is easier for the family to access shops, doctors and other supplies that some people take for granted.
Although we imagine that the Brown clan was sad to leave their beloved home, their leap of faith came true. “More would be revealed each week,” Billy Brown told the people in February 2019 about the transition from winter to spring on their new estate. “We would say, “Oh my God, that’s ours.” He added, “We began to realize what God really gave us. There are still pieces [of North Star] that we have deliberately not seen yet, so that we can examine it later when Ami feels better.”
