Since it first aired in 2014 fans of “Alaskan Bush People,” have come to know and love the Brown family. The love is also real within the family, as seen in a recent Instagram post by one of the siblings.


Bear Brown recently posted a picture of his father, Billy Brown, on Instagram to wish him for his 66th birthday. He also used the platform to thank Billy for what he has done for him. He wrote:

“My dad is one of the only people that has always believed in me! And has always been there for me!”

Bear concluded his post by referring to his father as a “living legend.” His Instagram followers joined in on the birthday wishes via the comments section of the post.

Fans commented on the post that they wish Billy a happy birthday and they see him as an inspiration. Many noted that despite the stress of putting together a show Billy still takes the time to bond with his family.



The Brown family recently moved into a new home in Washington State. However, they have been experiencing accessibility issues as the roads to their home are muddy and undeveloped.

The mud caused their vehicles to get stuck on the roads leading to the property. Public Works has since granted the family permission to place gravel on the surrounding streets.


The reason for their move is that their mother, Ami, was diagnosed with chronic lung cancer. This required the family to move from Los Angeles to Washington State.


Bear Brown isn’t the only family member with a thriving Instagram account. His younger sister, Rain Brown, also uses the platform to express herself.


Rain recently demonstrated her strength by posting a video of her lifting and flipping over a tractor tire on her Instagram account. This is but one example of how she uses social media to inspire others towards fitness.

Rain and Bear have also been known to collaborate on social media, as was the case with a video tribute on Instagram for their mother’s birthday earlier this year.
